You have to weight more than that to figure everything out. You need to weigh the whole rig like you did. Then take off WDH bars weigh again and then just weigh the truck. With those 3 weigh tickets you can figure tounge weight, trailer weight etc... I did the same thing as you, my big concern was how much weight was on the double axle. SOme day I will weigh everything correctly

You also didn't say what your TV was, or any of the specs on it. So no one can really pass judgement. (Well, they CAN, but they shouldn't )

at least need to weigh the truck alone. can probably deduce the toungue weight that way, and what weight is being moved to the front axle with the bars.

or is this a 5vr?

As rockfordroo says - need more info.

The OP needs to explain what is going on with each weight sheet. Trailer hooked up, unhooked, bars attached, not attached. Need more information than just showing the weight sheets.

Went to your profile and saw your rv and tv. Similar to mine ( I have a 23ikss) You should be well within the tv capabilities and have no problems. We've pulled ours through the hills of southern Indiana on narrow county roads and also crowded interstates. Plenty of power, plenty of brake, and a smooth ride. 9-11 mpg

Did you unhook the trailer while on the scales?? If so please do not do that. Take it to the lot unhook & weigh the truck alone...... If a trucker is waiting you may have an issue.
