No. There's something fishy about your weight results - especially for a fifth wheel; my 15% pin weight is extremely low. 8% is unheard of. And trailers are never lower than their advertised dry weights. Something is wrong.

Is it possible that you transposed a number when posting them here? Do you have the weigh slips or screenshots (if using the app)?

Did you do both weighings at the same time?

your numbers match the numbers in my sales brochure. The numbers I posted are from the stickers on my trailer for this particular trailer. 7960 and 2065. Guess I need to reload everything and re-weigh again.

When you re-weigh, jump out of the truck and make sure your axles are all on the proper scales.

Put the truck in park (not with your foot on the brake + not with the parking/emergency brake engaged).

Do both weightings at the same visit (do both, park the trailer, and swing back around for truck only).

And then post pictures of your weight slips.

Lastly, if you're a smart phone user- the Weigh My Truck app is awesome. Saves that uncomfortable reach up to the call button and shouting to be heard.
