Recently, at a rally, I had all the axles weighed--first the truck then the truck and 5th wheel. It was a very educational experience--especially the recommendation to raise the hitch an inch to equalize the weight (front & rear) on the trailer axles. The front axle weight is 400# more than the rear. I was getting ready to lower the hitch as the front looked a little high. I also learned the left side weighs 700# more than the right--looks like I will have to shift some stuff but I don't think I can make them equal as the kitchen w/30" slide is on the left.
