      At DRV's website, if you look under the floorplans link for Selects Suites, there is a category saying "Specs" under the image of the 36kssb3's floor plan. That link will take you to the information about tank sizes and weights, among other things.

      Here is a link to that information:

        I think your link takes me to the 2010 information, only thing new on web page for 2011 is pictures.
        I was thinking that with this recall the GVWR for 2011 may be less. Thanks

          Correct Weight

          I was at the DRV factory last week and ask for them to weigh my unit by wheel and pin weight. I saw the scales but for some reason they didn't get around to it. They did give me a copy of the original weights by wheel as built. It was weighed with the front jacks down; there was six weights; one for each wheel and each front jack. I questioned how they got pin weight from this; they said since my 2010 unit was built they had changed the procedure. Bottom line is the specs for weights are not correct on my unit. They suggested I go to a grain elevator and have it weighed by axle for $10.00. I told them that I wanted the weight by wheel. My 36RESB3 has the kitchen, bath and pantry on the off door side; it has to be heavy on that side.
          God Bless

            When you call D RV, ask for Tom Peck. He'll need the last 4# of your VIN to see if your rig is affected by the recall. He can tell you your particular rig's gross weight and axle weights (as configured when it left the factory.)
            While our rig was not affected, we did find out that D RV had an incorrect address for us. They are sending the new tags by mail.
