CAT Scale Readings

I have seen much information on using readings from Cat scales that use 3 different reports. (First with TT hooked up with WDH on, then same with WDH off, then only TV) But I recently read a post where they only used the first and third reports. There was a calculator posted where you can enter these numbers and get all the pertinent info. I have looked until my eyes are crossed trying to find that calculator, and am wondering if anybody knows where to find it.

See # 11 on his thread for a TT.

Truthfully, the weight without the WDH engaged (just coupler on ball) doesn't really matter to calculate the weights of things. It's only to ensure you're returning enough weight to the truck's front/steer axle. But for $2, it's cheap and easy to do.

Others have posted my recent pass on the scales + screenshots of the "Weigh My Truck" app.

The calculator is here:
Actual Weights - Travel Trailer/Bumper Pull Weights from CAT Scales - Towing Planner

The instructions for weighing a TT are here:

Hope that helps.
