Scaled the new TV-TT combo today

I ran the rig across the scales at the Cotton Gin today for a quick look at how my new Ram 1500 weighs in on my 25DS trailer. This was straight ball (no WDH) Half tank of water - 2 propane tanks - 2 batteries

I was going in to get new tires on the trailer so just made a stop by the Gin.

Total weight: 10380
Front axle: 2880
Rear axle:3160
Trailer axles: 4300

I will make the next hookup with full WDH and sway hooked up. Two Honda Gens and tool loaded in cross bed truck box.

Curious as to what your tongue weight was before and after the Weight distribution is in place. I did the same thing, just ball weight. Too lazy to hook up and didn't think it would chance the trailer axle loading but I think it might.

Now I want to go back and weigh it with all bed cargo loaded and WDH cinched up. I have two Honda gens, fuel cans and some more tool to go in the truck box. Trailer is pretty much set except for food and clothing, probably less than 200 pounds.
Of course my wife and I and dog make for 600 pounds in the cab alone. (He is a fat dog)
