Tongue Weight

Just got done making the rig up the to measure my tongue weight , going to change it to make it longer to not max out the cheap bathroom scale we bought to do this.I know this system is going to give you so much accuracy, doing the math ( 3 times the reading on the scale ) it's a little over 900#, never have weighted the trailer, but dry 5800# , i give it another 1,000 propane, battery, and the stuff me and the wife have loaded in her, so 6800 # comes out about 13%, maybe a little on the high side ????

We know to lite can cause sway,what does to heavy do ????

To heavy won't cause any issues as long as your tow vehicle can handle the weight.

900# is getting close to the limit of a 10K hitch. Over a lot on a 5K hitch.
