On a serious note, using 2 scales you're bound to overload 1 of them. Even splitting the difference of 750lb tongue weight, you're looking @ 375 on each. My scale doesn't go that high plus it puts it in a less accurate calibrated range in my opinion.
Here's an even better write up.

The question on this post is whether the OP's TW will be greater than 500 or not. Not sure where you are getting the 750 lbs TW. Like I said, lower the tongue slowly, just in case you are not centered well, so neither exceeds 300 lbs. But even eyeballing the center, this should not be a problem in this case.

Maiden voyage for the wolf pup. 600 miles with the e2 hitch. What a difference! Best money I've spent.
