Smile Weight of 07 Excursion 39s

Hello, looking for owners of 2007/08 Excursion, model 39s. Can you tell me what your weights are? I weighed mine at a Cat scale. Front axle was 8,600lbs and rear was 17,120lbs. I haven't had the opportunity to weigh the 4 corners yet. I looking at air pressures. The charts that I have for my tires show 100 psi in front and 95 psi in rear. Can someone add their thoughts and experiences, please?

Bruce

The only weights that matter are your own--even same year/model will vary.

To get your 4-corner weights, after you have the axle weight tell them you want a "re-weigh"--usually it is only $2 extra. Then roll back off the scale and pull up again with one side off, stopping before you get to the pole. That will put on the middle and rear plates. When I'm in position I have my wife (who is inside) tell them to register the new weights. Simple math will tell you each corner.

Be sure to use your tire mfg.'s chart to determine proper tire psi. It's usually minimum psi; I always add 5#.

BTW, I've found only one CAT scale that didn't have enough level concrete on the left side for me to drive up on, off the scale. You only need about 3'.

Thanks for your input. I assume the toad will need to be unattached (since I can't backup) unless I pull through and come back around, right?

RE Toad, yes, disconnect. In fact, we always arrive disconnected and, after the first weigh-in, she drives it off (usually can park it near the building entrance, still on trucker's side of station). The total weight is good to confirm that way, so you know you are within your GCWR (gross combined weight rating).

BTW, sometimes it will work better to pull thru and come back around, usually when too many trucks are parked close by behind the scale.

Sounds smart. Another question for you, are you a fan of TPS and if so which brand?

Steer @ 110lbs and Drive @ 100lbs, over 14,500 miles this season (Alaska) no problems. I monitor pressures with TPMS. No air added since topping off pressues this spring.

You are right on the money with your tire pressures.

Does your Eez system has pass thru tire valves? Or do you unscrew them to fill them?

I went with the screw on, non pass thru. At the time of purchase there was some discussion regarding air leaking with the pass thru style. I have never needed to remove any sensors due to low air during the camping season. Easy on/off valve stem and replaceable batteries.

Do you have them on your toad as well and if so is a signal booster required?
We're does it mount?

With axle weights you can do a pretty good estimate of the wheel weights. Generally divide by 2 for the front and 4 on the rear, then add a fudge factor in case one end of the axle is heavier than the other (not unusual). I use 350 lbs/tire for a fudge factor, but you can go higher if you feel my number is too low/risky. Then look that estimated weight up in the inflation tables. Since the table shows the minimum psi for the loaded weight, I always go one entry higher anyway.

My TPMS monitor sits on a table between driver and co-pilot seats (fully charged). I do not need a booster, I have discovered that if I fully charge the monitor the night before it has never dropped a signal.

This includes my toad.
