Just purchased a 2017 Vista 31KE

Hello to all;
Well we made the plunge and purchased a 2017 Vista 31KE contingent on the RV inspection we are having done Monday. We've been following several blogs for awhile trying to learn the "ropes" so to speak and we are looking forward to our first trip. The RV has not been used for awhile so what do you recommend we should definitely look for as we do the inspection?

Are you inspecting it yourself or having a pro do it? I’d suggest checking all major functions including engine & drive train. Look at service records. Look for leaks. It’s four years old so cosmetics will probably not be perfect, but that is not as important as, for example does the heat and air work.

Thanks for your reply.
We will be having an inspector do the inspection. He has a checklist of items that he inspects and the heat and air are on the list. I was looking for any items that may not be on his list that current owners may have encountered.
