I was able to find CAT scale in reasonable distance from me but not 4-corner. How do you search for them?


Thanks,
Alex

Most likely you will only find one at a rally. (Expect to pay $65) If you know someone who is into auto racing, he probably has a portable scale which can be used on the individual wheels. My method is to use the CAT axle scales, ($10) then add a 10% "fudge factor" to allow for side to side variation.

Thanks TwiceTheIce,

I guess I'll just have to be on the lookout for the opportunity and use CAT meanwhile

Freightliner at Gaffney does a four corner weight but that might not be all that convenient.

My 2014 RB did not drive real well when new. I set the tires based on weight, had the front end aligned, and got new front tires. All of these things helped with a pull that it had to the right.
But it started driving perfect after I had the ride height set.
All under warranty of course.

My 2013 Berkshire 390 bh had an air bag issue and would not raise the coach. I pushed the retract all and the air bags worked. I do get aloud pop or two while they inflate but doesn't think it is an issue. Just putting it out there in case someone runs into the same problem because trust me you will not get far with out the inflation...

Same thing on my 2014 390 FL. Two times the air bags have not aired up. I just ran the jacks thru a cycle and they air up that time. The popping is just the air bags seating in their brackets is my thought.

Could you go over the CAT scales and weight the coach. Then, if the scale driveway allows it (and is leveled with the scales), get only the wheels on one side over the scales, take another measurement and subtract the difference between the two to get an estimated weight for the wheels on the other side?

That would work. However, I do not believe I have ever seen a CAT scales that is level with the ground and without signs, microphones, etc on the sides. Another thought comes to mind--you might check with a large feed mill, cotton gin, peanut mill, scrap metal dealer or farmers' co-op. You might find a flat platform scales at one of those places.
