Scale results for 2005 Grand Surveyor 273RL

So I weighed my camper on a state certified scale.

2002 Ram 1500 5.9L 4x4 Quad Cab Short Box
-Friend about 220lbs
-3/4 tank of gas
2005 Grand Surveyor 273RL 5er
-aftermarket recliners
-hide-a-bed
-3/4 tank of fresh water
-misc supplies


Truck attached to camper---

Front Truck Axle only
-3340 (23% gross)
Front and Rear Truck Axles
-7580 (Rear only 4240 29% gross)
Front, rear, and both camper axles
-14460
Camper axles
-6940 (48% gross)
Camper on jacks (truck unhooked)
-8420


Then I decided to move the hitch forward about 2" to see the difference of the weight distrubution forgot to fuel up so this time with 1/4 tank of fuel.

So no replies yet?? Anyhow I am going to move the hitch to the farthest back position and tow it that way. Anyone else done test like this to see if moving the hitch helped with weight distribution??
