Axle weights

Just had my 2013 Aspire axles weighed at Lazy Days.
I'm a newbie, just wondered if the experts think these weights are fine.
LF 6250, RF 6740
LDual 7420 RD 8840
LTag 3660 RT4010
Fuel was 25 gallons, holding tanks and fresh water were all half full.
Basement and interior had minimal weight, as it is not loaded for a trip.

What are the axle weight ratings?
It sure looks like the manufacturer did a poor job of balancing the design based on about 1400 pounds differend on the rear axle.

My coach is back in storage so i don't have the axle weight ratings until I go there this weekend. Perhaps one of the other Aspire DLQ memebers can answer that.

Our Aspire's GAWR's are front 14.6 (bumped to 15.2 with the recall changing the tires to 315's), drive 20.0 and tag 12.0. We were right side and nose heavy which I am trying to mitigate by changing the ride heights and shifting some of our load. You are not as close to the front GAWR as we were, and you are not as right side heavy as we were either. Just make sure that you run both side tires at the pressure required for the heavy side.

Personally I would load your coach up like you are going on a trip. Full fuel, empty grey and black tanks, full fresh water and full propane. Put all the stuff you intend to take with you. Then have it weighed. This will give you a realistic look at your weights.

I got a reply from Joyce, after she had spoken to one of the guys who is familiar with this issue. "You don’t take the sum of each side and compare it to the other. You go by each individual weight – for instance the front end of your coach, I believe has a 16,600 weight rating and with the weights listed, you are at 12,990. The duals have a weight rating of 20,000 and you are at 16,260 and the rear is 10,000 and yours is 7670 – all are well within the weight ratings as you can see"
Thank you Joyce, and the Entegra members for your help.
