Questions on proper weighing of my RV

I just took delivery of a 2014 3010 Sunseeker and I know I should load it up as much as I can and then get it weighed. Is there specs on tire pressure for a certain amount of weight? Is the best place to weigh my RV at a truck stop? Anymore helpful tips would be appreciated.

You shouldn't necessarily load it up as much as you can- you should load it as you would normally use it.

I prefer truck stops for weighing but they're really convenient for me. CAT Scales is the brand that many use. They have a handy locator on their site:

Other folks go to grain places, dumps or even bulk agriculture supply places.

I like the CAT/truck stop scales because you can get individual axle weights easier as there are 2 separate scale pads that you pull onto.
