Does anyone know where you can get 4 corner weighing in the Phoenix, AZ area?

Thanks,

A quick mapquest search for "Public Scales" in Phoenix reveals:

B & N Salvage
3663 W Lower Buckeye Rd
Phoenix, AZ
602-272-7796

I suppose if you do a similar search using different keywords you could find more - or pick up a local Yellow Pages book and look under "Scales - Public"...

You might contact RV Safety (aka Aweigh We GO) and ask when they will have a weighing team in your area. They give an excellent written analysis of your weights and tire pressures as well as raw 4 corner weights.

Big RV dealers have sometimes invested in 4 corner scales - you might call Beaudry and see if they have them.

If you can find a scale that isn't busy, you can usually do it yourself by driving half off/on a scale that isn't raised much above the surrounding ground.

You can get axle by axle weights (sufficient, though not optimal) at many truck stops. See the Cat Scales web site for locations near you. Flying J's also have truck scales. Usually axle weights are sufficient unless you find you are near a crossover pint in the weight tables. Even then you would just assume the next higher level. That's sufficient to cover any imbalance in the side-to-side weight, You don't want to figure the tire pressure that close anyway - err on the side of too much - go 5-10 psi over.

Consider contacting Arizona DOT. They have the capability to weigh four corners with their portable scales.

These folks have portable scales and are now located in West Texas and I believe they spend the winter in Yuma. If you contact them now, you might be able to meet them before they get to Yuma.

Hey rotorwing I know there is a large scale at the Fort McDowell sand and gravel pit. I bought some rock there one time in my pickup and had to get weighed in and out. I was thinking of checking with them and see if they would weigh my MH. They were very nice folks and I think they might accomdate. If you call them and get a positive response will you post ?
