Hello lefaivre, if you want to update your signature or anything else just go up to the "User CP" on the upper left and there is a pull down to update all of your info.

Just weighed my coach with full fuel and 2/3 propane and it is at 10520 front and 17080 rear. I have a 2014 that has the 12,000 front axle. I am a little shocked that my specs show a 17,500 limit on rear axle. 1900 lbs for cargo and gear and water is not great!

Mike you are really good on the front axle. That rear axle weight is mysteriously the same as mine is. Spooky.

"The FMVSS have requirements for the manufacturer to use proper tires and rims for the gross axle weight rating (GAWR) and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). The manufacturer may determine the GVWR by adding cargo capacity (if any) to the curb weight of the vehicle as manufactured. The wise consumer, before purchase, will determine if the vehicle has sufficient cargo capacity to carry the weight of water, additional equipment (such as televisions, and microwave ovens), and luggage. The manufacturer’s certification label must show the GVWR. The GVWR must not be exceeded by overloading the vehicle. There is little the government can do to assist a consumer who has purchased a vehicle that has insufficient cargo capacity for its intended use."


NHTSA said that.

The limiting factor on the rear axle is the Allison 2500 transmission. The axle I believe is the same as the 3000.

I think i have had my tires at a little too high pressure for my weights. At 10,500 front and 17,500 rear what are most of you keeping your tire pressure at. I will assume loaded I would be adding another 800-1000 lbs.

Need more info. What size tires do you have. Do you have a 4 point weight. You really need to have a 4 point weight to see what corner is heavy. You also need a loaded weight without guessing.
