I know the truck stops that I've been to for weighings have had signs to not disconnect on the scales.
For a fifth wheel, you need 2 weighings:
1) truck and camper
2) truck only
For a TT, you need 3 weighings:
1) Truck and camper with WDH engaged
2) Truck and camper without WDH (just coupler on the ball)
3) truck only
For the truck-only weighings, you just park the camper out in a truck parking spot or somewhere out of the way.
It's more stressful thinking about than actually doing it.
