Your question is explained better than most, (The correct terminology makes all the difference).
Thank you.
(I'm sure you will be seeing a flood of correct replies, so I won't bother to answer). :-)

Are you serious?
That is silly, (and unlike this post), would be a waste of time.

They come greased, (and sealed), from the factory.

I think it's more like 2 to 3 pounds.

I can't believe I read this entire thread!

Sheesh Wayne, get a life.

You to Steve.

That's not a problem. If it suddenly stops you've got problems.

I bought my fleetwood discovery new in 2009, and drove it straight home. It is only 5 miles from the dealer. I parked it in the garage and noticed the tail pipe was warm. I wasn't too alarmed but the next week we went camping, about 100 miles away. When we got there the tail pipe was very hot....dangerously so.

By the time the mobile repair showed up, it was no longer hot.

I drove the the cummins dealer, got out and sure enough it was hot! Went right in and after waiting for an hour for the tech to look at it, it was no longer hot!

This has continued and no one can fix it. I get lots of confused looks and head scratching. Most people snicker and laugh as if they don't believe me.

So I am now selling the discovery and buying a newmar. Sometimes you just get lemons.

Redbaron73 - the aftermarket tailpipe cooler has recently been improved to include a warmer. Depending on conditions you can cool or warm the tailpipe to the desired temp with a digital control to achieve constant temps at all times. It is solar powered so a little pricey but still cheaper than a Newmar - although I think they come from the factory with cooler/warmer standard.

I wish the dealer had told me about this when I ordered my newmar!

I did have a few other issues though with the fleetwood: a switch on the dashboard labeled "generator" caused all sorts of a racket and fumes came in the windows.

And I cannot get water from the faucet all the time. It works at campgrounds but not at walmart.

The dealer assured me that newmar does not have these problems. I hope he was right.

The biggest problem I see with the hot tailpipe is if when you stop and the engine will not restart. It is a devil when you suck on the tail pipe to jump start it. Burns like heck.

I witnessed that with a blonde and her car. Imagine a diesel pusher! wow!

Oh! BTW, she was spoken for.

About 3 pounds, unless you get a turkey hen......

If you can clamp the Turbo Encapulator to the 2" receiver momentum pin, you will get 3 time more torque and about 37 mpg when towing.
