Front and Rear Axle Weight

Went to the CAT scales to weigh just my TV with my E2 hitch on with no bars, DW and my son... TV loaded as if we were going to hook up and go.

I need opinions on numbers. Went through twice just to see if everything matched up.

Steer Axle: 3520 (GAWR 3950)
Drive Axle: 2560 (GAWR 3950)
TAW: 6080

Do these numbers look correct for unloaded. The rear axle looks low, but I donít have anything in the bed of the truck either. Let me know your thoughts please!

You need the weight of the tow vehicle without the trailer to know if your in the ball park on weights. Looks like you might have a little too much weight off the rear of the truck though.

If this is only the truck (no trailer attached), then your weights looks OK.

This is without the TT attached. Everything but the TT.

Finally weighed the whole rig.... here are the numbers:
TV curb weight - 5591 (7200 GVWR)

Payload - 489 left out of the 1609 with everything added (WDH, Occupants and gear)

Steer Axle - 3320 (3950 Max)

Drive Axle - 3560 (3950 Max and 1000 pounds transferred back with the WDH)

Tandem Trailer Axle - 5660 (3500 Max on each)

Total Axle - 12540 (15000 Max)

How do you think all of that looks?
