"The sticker on my camper states that UVW does not include water.
It is the "As it Left the Factory" weight. Obviously, people or your cargo would not have been in the camper when it left the factory.

I do not believe it includes propane or the battery either as those are added at the dealer."
========================
I would hope there is a battery in the camper when it leaves the factory, as that is what operates the breakaway brakes!

I said I was not sure about who actually installs "your" battery.
The tow service might just put in a temp for the tow.

I got the impression the dealer did mine since it was a Deka and it is a local Pennsylvania brand. The dealer also carried it as their only "stock" battery.

This made finding a fresh duplicate easy.
They were installed within a week of each other.
