Weighing my Rig

I find a need to weigh my rig and need some advice on getting that done. My next trip, I plan to visit Flying J with my rig loaded for that trip.

I think I should weigh the truck alone, then truck hitched w/trailer wheels on the ground, then both on the scale and finally the trailer unhitched.

Is this correct?

Thanks,

You can do it in 3 passes. Truck alone loaded as for camping, truck and trailer without bars and finally truck and trailer with WD bars attached.

There's an app for that
and instructions here --> https://catscale.com/how-to-weigh/

What are you trying to determine ?
If just GCW one pass will do....
but cat scales charge $10 or so for first weight and allow reweigh within 24 hours for like one or two dollars so go for it

and find you a cat scale here--> https://catscale.com/cat-scale-locator/

good luck with it and may your wife's shoe collection not weigh TOO much !

If you head north to Oregon the scales are left turned on when the state police are not weighing commercial vehicles so you can do all the weighing you want, but it is a bit north of Anaheim Hills.

Thanks, I'll remember that for the next trip thru Oregon. I also saw that going from Carlsbad back to I-10, on US 285 but didn't think to stop. RATZ, missed that opportunity.
