My 3100 fully loaded with fluids and two adults and 80 lb dog tipped the scales at 13,600 lbs, 4460 on the front axile and 9140 on the rear, I did not get individual corners done.  That leaves me with approx. 900 lbs of extra stuff.

Ron, Is that "fully loaded" just your wet weight or does it include some or all of your stuff? Do you have 50 amp service? I guess we will need to load heavier items toward the front axle.

.... and the weight of close to 200 lbs I  decided to not have them installed on my new 3100.  In the 2551 I had the old style sliders and I must say the factory did a great job swapping them out, the entire window frame had to be replaced to handle the increased size of the glass and there was not a single scratch either inside or out.  I love the new frameless windows that look superb and makes the coach a little more secure.  Thanks, Ron

The 3100 is already built and my main concern about changing them out was scratches so glad to hear they did a good job. I hadn't thought about the 200 # as I'm stepping down from a RV with over 8000 # CCC; but, with as little outside storage as they have, I probably can't load it down. Have you weighed your 3100 yet? I hope to have about 2000 # CCC. Thanks for your replies!

In our 2008 and 2012 models the shower surround is as you describe a "PLASTIC" type materal that has seams with an edging and caulk in the corner areas.  In both of our units the shower has worked very well but maintenance is necessary to make sure the caulk is adequate.  We use our shower constantly in our RVs having lived in our units at least 4 - 5 months of the year.  The showers have held up well but we did recaulk a couple of the areas.

Thanks for the reply! You have the same size shower as I will have in the 3100. I'm 6' about 215, can I turn around in the shower? Will my head clear the skylight? I doubt if I can bend over.  Grin

I've read some comments about some units having "wallboard" for a shower surround. What is the current surround? I'm sure it's not a one piece fiberglass, but is it some type of plastic surround like most of the lower priced RVs? Thanks for any replies!

Anyone had the factory change out the windows? Any problems? Would you do it again? Thanks for any replies!  Help
126  Main Forum / General Discussion / Any rear end drag problems with 218' wheelbase? on: March 28, 2013, 10:18:44 pm
I'm looking at a 3100, but am concerned about dragging the rear end when backing into my driveway. I have a dip between the road and driveway. Should I expect problems with the 3100 (or 2910)? Thanks for any replies!
