Ok summer RV time getting ready to roll out again. Had a great time around the US last year. I've been meaning to post my CAT scale weights for help because they don't seem right to me.
Tow Vehicle Suburban 2500 (family of six, full fuel, and a cooler of drinks)
weight distribution OFF
Front .............3040 lbs
drive axle.......5180 lbs
Trailer axles...5840 lbs
weight distribution ON (4 links on the chain... any more make the nose of trailer rise)
Drive axle.....4840 lbs
trailer axles..5940 lbs
If I understand these weights I transfered 100 lbs rearward and 240 lbs forward. I realize in theory we should get the weights closer but I'm really not sure the best way. I also am not sure of the tongue weight. Hopefully there is some forgiveness here because I have a lightweight trailer compared to the 9300 lbs I could tow, but I wanted a safety net and not try and tow the maximum.
This our 2nd year with a travel trailer and I'd like to get things squared away properly.
Thanks for any who care to assist.
