TW on 1940LTD after Battery and Propane Tank installed

Looking to purchase 2013 1940LTD pop-up. Rockwood literature lists Dry Tongue Wt at 174 lbs. My TV has a 200 lb limit...2012 Subaru Outback. I asked the dealer how much the TW increases with the addition of battery and propane tank. He "guessed" 5 to 10 pounds. I asked him to check the TW on the unit we want to buy, but he has not got back to us. He is aware of our limit.

Any members have this particular unit that could give me some insight as to the TW with these additions?

I appreciate your time and help.

25-35lb battery and 30lb propane tank (full) will take the tongue weight up more than 5 or 10lbs. I'd say closer to 25 or 45.

Should still be close to your limit before loading.

Dry weight is often without any options.
Almost all of the battery/tank weight will be on the tongue or ball and that will increase the hitch weight.
I'll bet... $1 that you will be over.

fictional "dry" tongue weight doesn't take into account: battery, propane, water and cargo.
you will easily be over the 200lbs. limit.

only thing to do is have the dealer fill the propane, put a battery on and add water to the tank. then weigh it and see how much it is before you add cargo.
