Weighed Coach

I have a question for my Engineer and Physicist colleagues. I just weighed my coach and the DW was not on-board. As she sits over the front right tire, should I add all her weight to the front axle and assume that her weight would all be on the right front tire?

If you are so close to the weight on that tire that her weight makes a difference time to unload something.

Technically yes, but what difference is 100lbs going to make?
Seriously though I would be interested in what your results were. I assume your fuel and water tanks were full. My front axle weight is 10,000 lbs which is close to the 10,500lb limit.

Technically you should add the weight to it since she is directly over it, but if you are wise, you will subtract the weight and tell her what a benefit it is when she rides there.
