Anyone have Newmar Spec Sheet for 2016 SL Chassis???

Greetings - a couple of weeks ago, someone mentioned they had a copy of Newmar's spec sheet for their 2016 SL chassis, yet I cannot find it anywhere including it not yet being on Freightliner's website. Might anyone be able to post it here? THANK YOU, Jeff...

Nothing on the Star chassis has been posted as yet in the COM_NET Network, you may be able to Goggle info on the Star chassis from Newmar.

2016 chassis, same as 2015?.

I do know this. I just purchased a 2015 with the SL chassis. They told me that the new 2016's would have air level system vs the hydraulic system I have, I seen the 2016's advertised and they have the same hydraulic system as mine. They also told me there was not going to be any changes...I had an engine light and check engine with an exclamation mark beside it. when I took it into Freightliner, they put it on a code reader, no codes came up that needed any attention, they handed me a bill for 200$...I told them I wasn't paying the bill as the chassis only had 3000 miles on it. they told me it was a cummins problem and I should go after them, I told them that they coach doesn't say cummins on the steering wheel, it says Freightliner and I refused to pay them, they called the dealer where I bought it...they paid the bill. I was very upset about that incident, other than that. the comfort control steering system is amazing. it actually works like a dream, the winds were about 30 to 50mph and it drove with one hand. Power could be better with 500HP, I found it dragging through the rockies between BC and Alberta but it is built with real wood....all in all, so far so good except for Freightliner trying to pass the buck.

I think the LA has 600 hp not 500 unless you have a MA.

The 2016 MA, LA got air leveling added. They still have the same HWH hydraulic leveling has well. You now get both.

The air leveling is from Hadley and has it's own controller, just like the Essex and King Aire have had for years.

It allows you to level the coach using the air suspension, instead of using jacks.

Only thing touching the ground is tires. No putting boards under the jacks on soft ground.

I use it when overnighting in rest areas and such.

Does that come standard on any of the 2016 models besides the King Aire and Essex? We are looking at the new Mountain Aire so was wondering if it had it standard or might even be an option.
