This is a copy of my 360 pre purchase inspection check list. It’s on my computer in MS Word format, so the dashed lines and other formatting gets lost in the translation. But you should be able to copy it and reformat using your word processor so that it looks nice. It’s set up so that you can circle either Yes or No for most items and record the appropriate numbers for some values. It works best if you have a friend to help. For example, someone to watch the exterior lights as you flip the switches. It also helps if someone (perhaps the seller) knows the 360 or has read the owners manual first. Enjoy.
