Weight on the corners of a 2014 2400 SunSeeker

I am confused as to why I have such a difference of weight between the driver and passenger sides. My first clue was the passenger side was always lower so I would air up the air ride to level. Air pressure on the right 70 psi while 45 on the driver side. Took it to scales and weighed.
Total 10940
Rear 7280
LR 3380
RR 3920
Front 3640
LF 1780
RF 2020

Black and gray tanks empty. Fresh water 1/3 full. I think this is too big of difference. I did remove the U-shaped dinette but I added carpet and two recliners.

Is this close to the weight differentials all of you see even on a little larger SunSeeker?

You are talking about 240 lbs I would think that the recliners could account for much of that, did you weight prior to removing the dinette which didn't weight more then about 50 lbs I would assume.

No I didn't weigh it before but it was a problem before we made the change just not as noticable. I'm curious what happens when I fill the fresh water tank. I plan to find everything in storage on the passenger side and put it on the driver side. Do you think it's a large weight difference? This is not with a passenger even.

I should have said 240 up front the back is over by almost 540 what side is your generator on? most fw tanks are center line. good luck let the forum know what you come up with

Generator is on the drivers side. I donít think I can transfer that much weight from one side to the other. Iím just blown away the weight difference. When I get time Iíll make some changes and repost.

Here are my weights for comparison 2012 Sunseeker 2300
Total 10560
Rear 6960
LR 3360
RR 3600
Front 3600
LF 1740
RF 1860

Unit road about 2 inches higher on Left Rear before I added recliners. I run about same air pressure in my Airlift system to level unit. Did not weigh dinette but recliners weigh 175 lbs for the pair. With fresh water tank, awning, 2 batteries, all the appliances, propane tank & bed on the right side I believe this is where the 360 lb difference lies.

My old class A leaned on the passenger side I ended up pulling the rear spring and having it reached and a leaf added came back to level and stayed that way. there was no change in the ride feel

Thanks for the comparison! I have some things I can change to counter the weight differential. I have a work conference to go to so I doubt I will have time to change anything until I get back in a couple weeks.

I have air ride on mine and I can level it with air. I just want it to be a little closer to equal.
