New to the Duramax crew

Just bought an 07' 3500 SRW CrewCab Longbed. Anything I should look for or be aware of? Things I should inspect first?

The only thing to keep an eye on is the transmission fluid level. Some trucks suffer from the dreaded cooler line leak. Other then that just enjoy it.

One issue it has which I'm not really worried about but it is a new to me truck so I would like it fixed. Anybody have a wiring diagram for the drivers power seat? Mine doesn't work...

Did you already rule out a blown fuse?

Yeah I checked the fuse's that I think go to it. I'm thinking about taking off the cover to the controls and checking power there, just need a diagram. Anybody else have issues before?

Love mine
however i had an issue with the front diff case, im not sure if someone had it apart before i bought mine, or if they didnt tighten it up at the factory but several of the bolts holding the case together were loose and i lost all the fluid in the case, unannounced to me i did some damage to the gears

that and the muffler and cat fell off onto the ground some how....
