Whew! Leveled Sherline Scale with some heavy duty bricks and steel plates to get scale almost perfectly leveled under trailer tongue and took off propane tanks and battery and weighed in at 775 lbs, put all tanks and battery back on and hit 1000 lbs, took off 30 pound tanks and put a 15 pound tank on and ended up at about 850 lbs. Feel much better now.

Glad you got it figured out. A lot of people are in disbelief about weight and this is why forum members say to weigh it. It is eye opening......

Yep, 1400 lb tongue weight is why the 150 ecoboost was traded for the F350 6.7 SRW.
Both the ford dealer and the RV dealer said "sure you can pull it all day long with this truck". Had I known the truth, I'd have the F350 and a 5th wheel instead of a bumper pull.

I have the Sherling scales also. Boy what a surprise when I weighed in at 1,440 tongue. I had added two additional batteries to the two that were already there to feed my inverter, plus about 20 gallons FW. Since they are all full forward, it added almost 400 lbs to the tongue weight. The published tongue weight is 1,040 lbs.
My unit was figured from the factory [according to the manual] with two 30 lb propane tanks and one battery, but empty FW tank which is FAR forward. Sure wish I could put all the batteries in the back end.
