I have a weight and balance issue. One problem was going from a 40 foot Class "A" diesel pusher to a large Class "C". Trying my best to reduce the cargo load to a minimum. But, I checked the Pilot Truck Scale weight when departing on July 1st and confirmed the rear axle was overloaded. Now the challenge of reducing some cargo and moving items towards the front axle.
I only filled my water level to 1/3 by having enough to wash hands and flush. My Dry Weight #3051S is 12,522 lbs based on the (yellow sticker) inside drivers door. This does not include a water weight of 367 lbs if full and the tongue weight of your towed trailer.
But does it include any propane or gasoline?
Dry Weight 12,522
Cargo capacity 1,551
Fuel weight 367
GVWR - cargo - fuel = 12,582? 60 lbs unaccounted for?
Looks like with a full tank of fuel my cargo capacity is closer to 1,184 lbs. Just add some water and propane and you could easily be under 1,000 lbs.
