I don't think that's an option on the CAT scales. They have several "tables", each easily defined by a yellow outline. All you have to do is makes sure none of your axles are straddling (or maybe a little too close to?) any of those lines. Then, when you go inside, they'll print a slip with the weights for each occupied "table" listed separately, along with a total?

I know from personal experience you can get an incorrect weight if you have an axle to close to the "edge" of any of the "tables". That screwed me up royal on a tag axle coach I used to have.... until I had it reweighed a few weeks later and the lady behind the counter knew exactly what she was doing...

When we were looking to buy our first Class A , a sales lady showed us a unit , solid counter tops, hardwood every where, 518 lb CCC. DW puts more weight than that in the fridge.
I guess it's not illegal to build an overloaded coach , it's up to us not to buy them.

Ours, along with the new, modified vehicle one (issued when the front axle was changed) is stuck to the sidewall of the MH, right beside the driver.
Yours might not even show a CCC, just the allowed weights adn you have to figure the CCC from it and the actual scale weights.
