The 2017 DSDP 43' with Spartan chassis has the same RG IFS2000 front axle, just rated at 19K vs 20K of your's (or the ESDP, LADP, or MADP). Along with the 365 tires the 19K front axle is a major upgrade from the original 2016 factory release of 17K front axle with 315 tires.
Kudos to Newmar for rectifying the 2016 DSDP 43' full-wall slide front axle overweight issues.
One can only hope that Newmar will offer a reasonable factory upgrade package of the 2017 wheel wells and 365 tires/wheels to the 2016 DSDP 43' owners to giving them the extra 1000# of front axle capacity of the 2017 coaches over the 2016 fix.
