need more info. How much does the truck weigh by itself and how much does the truck weight with the trailer hitched but only the truck on the scale? Need to know what the hitch tongue weight is. Remember, if you have anything in the bed of the truck BEHIND the rear axle, that counts as tongue wieght also.
So you need to weight it the following way:
1. Truck Weight with Trailer attached (with only truck on scale)
2. Truck Weight WITHOUT trailer attached
3. Weight of anything in the bed behind the rear axle
Take #1 - #2 = X +#3
That number should be roughly 10-20% (814-1628lbs) of the trailer wieght (8140lbs)
