You might check those first to ensure good connections. As far as towing vs driving, that's your call and your money (potentially). I would like to say that this should be covered under the powertrain, but we know how stealerships work. Good luck.

Well I closed and signed my life away. The place was nasty. I don't think they ever cleaned, and for sure never deep cleaned. 4 people cleaned for 2 days. At least it is done now. I don't know how some people live. Lesson learned, pay a cleaning company the money when you move in. It is worth it.
I was wondering what the differences were between the Intune and the Predator2? Anyone have experience with both or know the difference? Doesn't really say much on the website. Difference is about $50 in price, with the Intune being more. I assume the Intune has more features, but looking for real life examples and reviews. Any help and insight is appreciated.

So the inspection was this morning. The roof is not 20 years old like it was originally noted, more like 13ish. Has some years left in it and no hail damage. Furnance is brand new, but the AC unit looks to be 20 years old so that will be on my watch list. The hot water heater is old as well and will need watched. Luckily I am getting a home warranty with the purchase provided at the sellers expense so that is nice to have. Their was a nut on the main water line into the house that is broken that will need replaced and the gas fireplace, the pilot light wouldn't stay lit so not sure what was wrong with that. Everything else was pretty much okay, just some maintenance things. The handle on the microwave was broken, the wood above the garage door wasn't sealed properly from the outside so it has water damage and needs replaced, the windows all need cleaned as they are hard to open, the basement has had minor leaking in the past (probably during long hard rains) and the sump pit was dry, etc. Just minor maintenance things for the most part. I am going to negotiate for the bigger things like the water line and see what they will do for the AC unit and water heater if anything. Should know more within about 10 days, but things are looking good.
Yeah. This is a 20yr old house so it wasn't remodeled. I did view a few and most of them I found so many areas where they cut corners that it made me doubt the other areas that I couldn't see. Since this is my first house, I want to get the inspection for a piece of mind. If it's worthless, it is a lesson learned. I just don't feel comfortable doing it myself at this point in my life.
Yes, I am hoping to find somethings in the inspection to help negotiate a better deal. I am currently paying a little more than I was hoping, but a few grand on a better house is more ideal than saving a few grand for a shitty house that needs work. IMO GREAT ADVICE! I need to write these point down. This is exactly what I was looking for. Someone with experience that had key insight. You seem like you were a great person to contract with. Wish their were more people around like you.
Ah, gotcha. Yeah I am interested in seeing what the average utilities cost is. I'm thinking since it is a ranch it won't be too bad. I know my utilities will be electric, gas, water, sewer, and trash. Not sure what each one of those will run.
