So, the Newmar four corner would at least give a heads up as to whether any of the corners were significantly heavier than others, before being loaded down.


You need to call customer service after it leaves Newmar, they will email it to you

Ok, thanks. I'm hoping to get a four corner weight as soon as possible. I know CAT specifically says not to do it on their scales, but many do. So, I haven't decided how, when or where I'll get the four corner, but that would be a good starting point.

Do you know if when they weigh it has water or fuel?

It looks like you have an outside vent? If so I would be interested how it works and what it looks like when finished.

Good luck the rest of the way!

No, not supposed to be an outside vent. I did have that as a special at one point, but cancelled it and just double checked my order and prints I signed off and didn't see a vent shown. Are you looking at the rectangular hole that will be behind where the microwave (Adventium) goes or something else?

Yep, I'll admit it looks like it would be for a vent, but it's not on the order. We went back and forth on it. Liked the idea of it, but were worried by people that talked about it rattling.

I guess if somehow they wind up putting one in, I'll assume it's fate. lol

I know there is a thread or post on here about fixing it. I know it certainly works better than it sounds.

Check out what Great Escape did to secure their vent in their Entegra. Electromagnet if I remember correctly. They did a video that you can find on YouTube. Hope this helps.

Looks like it is pretty real, just makes my wait just that much harder. Are you at the factory or did someone just send these to you. If you are at the factory I would like to know what day of the build it is in. Just found out mine was moved to Run #11 from #12 and trying to plan our trip.
Congrats on the 'real'
