I have never been to a truck scale facility, but I want to....

Can someone outline the proceedure here so I won't look like an idiot when I pull up to the scale?

Hi Rod, welcome to the forum. I'm not an expert on this by any means but I'll try and help.

First of all, I would try and find one not being used at the moment, then pull up to the scales, usually there is a sign telling how to contact the desk, usually a phone there too. Call the desk and tell them you are an individual and want to weigh your truck and trailer. Pull up on the scales and you will see 3 divided sections, pull forward until your front tires are on the last set, then your rear wheels should be on the second section and your trailer tires should be on the 3rd section. There should be a light at the end that turns red and green, when the green light comes on you pull off and go to the desk for the weigh ticket and pay them. A lot of times they will let you go back and weigh the truck for not much more. Anyway, now you have to unhook the trailer and take the truck back across the scales by itself, then go get that weight.

After all that and I have to say that scales vary, ways vary, so these might not = your scales procedure. Anyway, now you can set down and figure your weights, your pin weight is the rear wheels of the truck unloaded subtracted from the loaded rear wheel weight, this = pin weight. Your trailer axles are what they are and your steer tires are what they are loaded and unloaded. Your gross weight combined will be the total of the first weight hooked up. Your total truck weight is the total of the truck by itself.

Hope this makes some sense, like I said I'm no expert on explaining this. Linc is probably laughing his head off reading this and if I'm wrong somewhere please feel free to correct this.

It isn't nearly as hard as I made it sound. In fact its easy. The hard part is looking at your weights and thinking, it can't be that heavy! Good luck!

I just picked up the trailer yesterday and weighed it before putting it in storage, so here goes.

2006 Keystone Raptor 3814SS
- Maybe 2-3 gal water
- 5 gal fuel in filling station
- approx 500 lbs personal items from trade-in
- Otherwise completely stock/empty

Steer: 4480
Drive: 6320 (truck is around 3500 unloaded)
Trailer: 9520
Gross: 20320

Given those figures, Keystone is just about dead-on with their figures.

Once I get the trailer loaded up with kitchenware, clothes and so on (for a trip next weekend), I'll weigh it again and post.

- 06 Keystone Raptor 3814SS

- 05 Dodge RAM 3500 QC 4x4 6sp

Truck with fifth wheel attached family of five and four quads with 40 gallons of water:

Truck Front Axle 4,900 LBS
Truck Rear Axle 6,300 LBS
Trailer Axles 11,800 LBS

Total 23,000

Truck empty weight with pax is Aprox 8,000 so pin weight is 3,200 lbs.

Location of water tanks is not optimum as aprox 40% of weight ends up on pin and 60% on trailer axles. Trailer is already pin heavy empty so locating the water tanks directly over the trailer axles would have been a better location.
