Coil springs are difficult to "stage". With leaf springs, some of the leafs are stiffer and don't function during lighter loads, but when weight is put on the truck then those come into play.

Good Job !!
Most bathroom scales max out at 300 lbs, so if you ever weigh the trailer tongue again, you may want to use a board with 4 sections instead of 3. I also noticed that the board marks are not directly centered over the pipes, which could skew the results a bit.
As a safety precaution, especially when using a longer board, just have the tongue jack barely off of the ground when weighing....which it probably was. Even a 4x4 can break with that much weight on it.
