Generally not. You pull onto the scale, and push a button to call an operator at the desk. You tell them you're doing a private weighing and they'll say "got it" (so make sure you're standing on the truck's door jamb/sill).
You'll pull off the scale. We park off to the side and my wife runs in to pay.
You'll remove the bars and pull back around onto the scale. This time you push the button and tell her it's a re-weigh. They'll need the scale ticket # from the first weighing. Again, be standing at the same spot on the truck and they'll take the weight.
You'll pull of the scale; pay for that weighing; and park the camper in a truck spot.
Finally, pull back onto the scale. Same thing as before- stand on the truck, push the button, get the weight. Go in and pay and rehookup the camper.
