4 corner weighing in Jacksonville, FL

Anyone know of a 4 corner weigh scale location within 100 miles of Jacksonville, Florida?

You can also use a regular truck scale by weighing twice.

First time get regular front and back weights. 2nd time, pull passenger side tires on apron next to scale and get drivers side weights. Do the subtraction and you'll have weights for all four corners.

I guess I should have said I checked the Yellow Pages without results.

Public scales near Jacksonville are Pilot and T/A travel centers BOTH have locations in Baldwin on US 301 and St. Johns county on CR 210 Just off the I-95 exit.
Do not know if they can weigh 4 corners as some CAT scales are elevated. Go to check them out and if nothing else, get the normal front and rear axle break down on your first pass.

If they are not busy, pull your RV up to the scale and pull on at an angle to get 1 wheel weighed at a time, may take a minute or two to align 1 wheel at a time on the scale. You may need to take 2 friends to help make it speedy. 1 outside of the RV to spot you to get the 1 wheel on the scale at a time, and the other inside with a cell phone to let the operator know when to make scale printouts.

Wish I could let you weigh where I do - At work at the Jax Port Authority. I know there are scales on the Talleyrand terminal and Blount Island terminal. But all are located within the secure areas of the terminals and NO public access. Because I work there, I get full use before work, during my lunch hour, and after work - BUT NO PRINTOUTS. I can read and notate the readings but no official printout.

If you can identify farming areas where they truck out product you will find scales for trucks. For instance......west of St. Augustine is farm area. There are at least a couple of scales there you could access.
On edit......I wonder if the farmers market on Beaver St. has scales?

Ok, looks like there are no public scales in the area that weigh 4 corners, thanks for the replies. I will see what I can get done at Pilot.

Check out the RVSEF web page. They're located in titusville or melbourne and do scheduled weighings. They even have traveling scales and weigh at events across the US. You could also check rv-dreams.com, as Howard and Linda are one of their traveling teams and will be in Florida this winter
