I for one, only weigh each axle and then add 10 -15 psi over the inflation tables for taking care of all the variables.
Also use the truck stations along the interstate and have even been know to stay overnight is some instances. After all they're free and the personnel are always friendly and glad to do it.
Last time, was in June along I95 in CT, whereas the one official wanted to know all about Motorhomes and showed us the best spot for parking. This made it all too convenient, by getting off of a crowded highway, during rush hour and for making an early arrival at our CG in RI, the next morning.


Good way to go about it I am sure.

I had seen some info about my particular model MH that one side may be a good bit heavier than the other. Based on my weight data today it looks like that is true. If I fill my potable water tank full There is almost a 1000 pound heavier load on my right rear wheel than on the left rear wheel. The front wheels are loaded about the same. My fear was just adding a fudge factor might not be enough. Glad I got the 4 quadrant weights. I likely will travel with 50% potable water to lighten the right side some. And put heavier stored items on the left side. Balance things out a bit more.

Having that kind of difference has to be rare, or I would think so.
Whatever the case, the tires on each axle should be inflated the same and for reflecting that imbalance.
