Agreed. I still think it is just the tanks, not the propane gas. Literature online says LP gas (doesn't mention tanks) is included. There is no propane in the tanks when they weigh so makes no sense.

I believe they started including the propane weight because it's a known weight that will be the same all of the time.

Do the dry weight sticker include the hitch?

When you or someone else proves it you can say I'm incorrect. You may believe that a manual adjustment is done to the scale weight, but I don't.

Look it up ~ I was going to and provide the written law, but snarky attitude eliminated me using my time. It seems your request of another stating so has been provided. You are INCORRECT.

You may find this helpful. It's directly from Forest River Inc which is a list of FAQ's about dry weight, towing, etc.

See post #2. I already quoted the federal regulation. Does anyone read other folks responses on this forum?

Thank you. Has been common knowledge for a while but could not recall where I read it last.
