RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I just spoke to the tech at Torklift & they told me that if I'm towing various things then a proper scale may make more sense then a bathroom scale. If I was always towing the same toy a Bathroom scale should work fine. But I plan to tow a full sized Brinco & a Suzuki Samurai & maybe my Rachero or my Miata. or my wifes Honda on road trips. So it seems maybe spending the extra money maybe a an easier faster way to go?

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I'm thinking one simple mistake & there goes a bathroom scale??!?! But can you explain or give me a link showing how to use a bathroom scale?

Trailer tongue weight scales?

Now that I've added a 4 foot extension on my Camper to tow my toys with, I'm more concerned about the tongue weights & wanting to make sure i'm placing the weight properly. So what a great inexpensive price on a good scale that you would recommend?

Looking for south Kern river camp spot near the water

I've never been to the kern river & always heard great stuff about it. & wonder if the drought has affected the water levels? I live in the Los Angeles area & wanted to maybe do a simple over nighter so I don't wanna drive too far. But somewhere near the water that will allow our dog to swim & us to get some fishing in. I'm bored with Castiac lake & all its broken glass all along waters edge, so I'm willing to drive much further to find better spots. So any suggestion are appreciated.

RE: Electric Brake Controls?

I don't think you can go wrong with the P3, they are very popular. Glad to hear that being its waiting for my wife to pick it up now at the RV shop already paid for. On a Dodge forum they started say they were junk & that had me nervous about my choice?

RE: homakes the best WDS & why do you think so?

... I'll be towing with a 4 foot extended hitch ... You may find this site useful. The site owner intended it for truck campers with extensions. It's pretty sophisticated but I don't know the formulae he uses. In correspondence he said he compiled a lot of vendor data, and that other site visitors have reported back that results were pretty close to actual weights measured on truck scales. Bill's TC Hitch Extension Calculator Chris Cowles Gainesville, FL Edit: Oops. Didn't see that someone else had already posted the same. Oh trust me I have learned a lo from this site & have based a lot of my choices on info I learned here. Such as getting a Truck Camper instead of something else. & thank you so much for that link! :D

RE: Electric Brake Controls?

Seems a bit more than I need & yet at that price..... Figure more is better? Possible it is more than you need, but wanted to provide a good alternative. The others do work once you get them set properly. I used those types for years with my old 92 Ford. But after installing my BrakeSmart, I gave my old Tekonsha to a friend swearing I would never go back to a inertia or time ramped unit again. Though to be honest, he is still using it today. The BrakeSmart is about as close to the new integrated units as you can get after market. I can see from the picture in your sig, your along the lines of what I'm planning. :D

I'll be pulling up to 7,500 lbs behind my truck camper with a 2,500 lance on it.
