Weight Distribution Sabre Silhouette 298RLTS

Tow vehicle: 2010 F350 6.4L Diesel, Crew Cab, Full Bed, Air Shocks on rear, single tire drive axle.
Trailer: 2014 Sabre Silhouette 298RLTS 5th wheel
Tire Pressures: steering axle 65 pounds
drive axle 80 pounds
trailer tires: 65 pounds
CAT Scale Results:
steering axle: 5420 pounds
drive axle: 5480 pounds
Trailer axle: 8380 pounds

Question: Do I have a problem pulling this load? I really do not understand this
load factor, especially calculating tongue weight (king pin on receiver).

Not real import question, however do the letters on my model mean anything

Did you do a weight without the trailer by chance? A weight without the trailer will help you calculate exact trailer weight and pin weight as well as your available payload and adjusted towing capacity. Knee-jerk reaction without knowing more info is you are probably ok.

Wink Fifth Wheel Weight Calculator

I want to thank everyone for your input. The next thing I will do is weight the tow vehicle loaded, minus the trailer. Thank you for directing me to the Fifth Wheel Weight Calculator. Will post results when done.

When you weigh, try to get both weights at once (with the camper attached and truck alone):
Learn To RV: How to Weigh a Fifth Wheel Camper (at CAT Scales)

Then, you can plug them into my calculator here:
Actual Weights - Fifth Wheel Weights from CAT Scales - Towing Planner
