On no Sage, it will give you individual wheel weights. All of these Cat scales have 3 weight sections. And while the front section has a couple of pillars and signage over it the two back sections don't and each have an apron on the sides of about 2 feet wide.
So, you don't pull up to the front weight section. You use the two back scale sections and pull up with two wheels on one side of the RV completely on the apron (not the scale) and two wheels on the other side on the two scale sections. Get a weight recorded and then reposition on the scale with the wheels on the other side on the apron and the two other axles on the scale.
You'll end up with two weight readings - usually $7 to $10 for the first and $2 or $3 for the second - and the numbers shown on the print out will be the individual axle weights of each side of the RV.
I also put the whole RV on the scale and got a complete weight too. The individual Axle weights I got added up to the total weight so I knew the apron method worked just fine.
You can find a Cat Scale at most Truck Stops, like Pilot, Flying J, or Loves.
