my pin weight was more that i thought it would be and that actually put my GVWR about 500 over on the truck.
So i used that to talk the wife into a truck
i told her new truck or lighten the load, i got a new truck
as we are still under on the fiver max weight, so new unit will have to wait a while

My literature stated 4054 dry and 522 tongue but after pulling it to the scale with nothing but the 1 battery and 2 tanks (one empty) added, the scale showed 4440 and 680.
would love to know where the 386 lbs came from.

Because the literature has fictional numbers.
They're based on a stripped down version of the trailer.

What does the yellow sticker say its weight was when it left the factory?

oh yea.. it is different from what I have seen in other sources. just went out to look, It is 4222 so I am looking at 218 lbs for the battery, one full tank, one empty and whatever junk I have in there that I am not considering. (tv, coffee maker, etc).
yea,, I am green at this ... but learning. Just wish it was not so easy to get ..

thanks
