That has been my experience too.

I was a total newbie my first time at a CAT scale and the operator talked me through the whole thing. He was also a 5th wheel RV driver and I learned a lot there.

I for one think it is much more important to see what the road sees as your hooked and ready to go! for instance, my setup looks like a 6700lb truck towing 14000lbs of trailer if its unhooked....but once I hook her all together the axles and road see a 10000lb truck towing a 11,700 lb trailer. But it is nice to know what your base numbers are so getting all the weights is handy.
