Mounting Wheelwell Liners

I got a local HVAC shop to fab me a pair of metal wheelwell liners, same as the ones Newmar offers (theirs are backordered and they've been unresponsive to email).

Anybody that has already installed them have any thoughts to share on how they mounted them in the wheelwell? I am expecting I'll have to remove the drive wheels to install them so want to have what I need at the start.

Thanks.

According to "Minimizer" they have two wheel well mounting kits... One is a "weld on" and the is a "bolt on" type. (It would seem to me that the bolt-on's are easier than welding...

As far as access, when I changed out my air-bag helper shocks, I chocked the front wheels really well and blocked the rear jacks (built up to the jack before lifting the rear levelers... That gave me plenty of space when the rear axel dropped down.

Just make sure you jack stand the RV frame once you get it in the air, for safety!

These installation instructions are for the Minimizer brand truck wheel well mounting kit, but your RV can't be too much different...

Cheers,
Bob

Hey Bob. These are completely different - these are sheetmetal boxes that Newmar "engineered". If you go onto the newmar parts site they are PN/Item number 118404. From the part pictures they look like they just screwed them into the front and rear walls. I probably won't know for sure what I'm going to be able to do until I pull the wheels off one side and can get under there.

I use the same method as you to get underneath. Blocks under the leveling jacks to maximize lift and then place axle stands underneath.


Thanks!
