Our gross is over 4500 lbs over dry weight but it is a toyhauler.

How does one learn what his tongue weight is? Do you first weight the TV and then weight with RV hooked up and then take the difference of the two rear axle weights? Will this give you your tongue weight?

That would do it. Do it without the WD hooked up.

Edit; it can be done with a bathroom scale as well. Someone had it in here in another thread not to long ago.

The scale at Huntington Or when closed is still on and you can weigh your different axles with a little maneuvering I haven't done the new TT yet but did do the Winnebago last summer.

Get 3 weights (the page describes them) and use this tool:

there are some real positives to your methodology spock123 You are never over or underloaded and are never disappointed that you couldn't bring that extra what ever. lol
