Weigh the entire rig first. Then after you drop it off at the dealer, go back and weigh just the truck and then you can get the trailer weight and the pin weight from the numbers you have.

I weighed mine without water. 21,600 total. 11,450 on the trailer axles. A little close to the 12,000 axle ratings. I may add 7k axles.

I weighed mine full of lpg and 1 Battery. I'm within dodges axle ratings. I don't like that I lost 80 lbs on the front axle once loaded.

What truck do you have? You're weighing in quite a bit less than me (ready to camp, our truck alone was 9,200).

My weighing...

2006 Dodge Mega Cab 5.9 This was just with me but full of fuel. I had just picked up the camper from RVW.
I only had 30lbs in the air bags. I may goto 40lbs and see if that gives me back the factory rake to my truck and add a little weight to the front axle.

What's your truck's GVWR?

Monty here's a pic of the air bags. Finally just a few free minutes to put them in. I also threw a set of bilstein shocks on while I was under there. I'm anxious to see if there's a difference.
