Bob,

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is the maximum number that the GVW or GTW should never exceed. GVWR is applied to trailers as well as vehicles, but you may see this rating referred to as the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight.

Am I missing something?

So, the 9077 should be the loaded number?...... If the axles are 8000 total, then that leaves 1077 for what-ever?

Thanks, good or bad? Tv doesn't squat much, but then it's a Dodge.

This would be correct. Go to the scales and see for sure. Get 1 pass of tv no fiver. Weigh front axle on scale pad one and rear axle on scale pad two. Then weigh with tv and 5er. Do the truck same as first pass and trailer axles on third pass. You can figure your numbers from there.

As long as your state allows it.... some do, some don't. We usually use a cat scale at a local truck stop. (This is easy for us as we have 4 truck stops and a blue beacon truck wash within a 10 min radius of the house.

I've stopped there before but never separated from trailer..It's mostly used during harvesting season, so shouldn't be a problem.

Are you stating you now have Load Range G (14 ply rated) tires with a 15 inch wheel diameter?
