New Aire 3343 Towing Capacity

How much weight can I tow with my 3343?
Would handle a jeep Cherokee four-door limited?
Also on the slides can somebody tell me where I can find the bolts to check to make sure they’re tight to the motors on the 3343 for the full wall slide and the bedroom slide and the driver side slide thank you

Should be on your sticker by your entry door.
It’s your GCWR - GVWR.
My guess on an Newaire it’s 10,000 lbs

Your New Aire has the small B series engine which would have troubles on 6% and plus grades here on the west coast when towing 5K plus tow. Newmar started putting the L series engine in the 35 ft. New Aire which could tow up to 10K pounds tow with no issues.

N.A. B/R slide gearmotor

Just finished replacing my B/R gear motor under the bed after the self tapping Bolts worked loose after only 5,000 miles or so. The unit had a couple bolts very loose and the gear motor rotated just enough to cause excessive strain on the internal small gear shaft to break. so the motor would run but no gear shaft movement. Had fun removing the unique shaft coupling {forgot the name of it } , used two large pipe wrenches to break the hold on the shaft. Any way after replacing the unit I drilled out the self tapping holes and installed proper size bolts with lock washers and double nut to hopefully keep it from happening again. Thanks for reading!

NA slides

Thank you Gary for letting me know also do you know where the motors are for the full wall slide as well as the drivers life so I can check the hardware on those as well?

I own a 2018 NA 3343 and tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee and yes it has a 360 HP engine. I have towed through Colorado and Wyoming without issues. I agree I wish it had more HP but it does an adequate job and gets the job done.

I towed a F150 King Ranch with my 3343 with no problems. Yes it was not a racehorse in the mountains out west but nowhere near as slow as the trucks.

What baseplate and tow bar will you be using? I called Blue Ox and they advised they do not have a baseplate yet for the Bronco.

I have 2018 NA and have the Bronco on order, Blue Ox has not gotten one to do the work on.. I wonder with the upgraded front bumper if you will be able to remove the tow hooks and Blue Ox will provide attachment points?
Would be convenient.

Blue Ox will make and fit a Base Plate for a new vehicle that they have not developed one for yet just make an appointment and take it to them.

Driver’s side FWS is hydraulic. No motors.
