Cat scale

1st time using cat scale. It has 4 platforms and each one has sensors both front and back. I have a 1991 fourwind class c with a tow dolly and will be towing a small Toyota. Therefore I have 4 axles on the ground. 2 class c, 1 tow dolly and 1 for rear wheels on Toyota.
Where do I place all that on scale to get proper weights?

The only weights you really care about are the motor home front and rear, right? Or are you wondering what the car weighs as well?

From a practical perspective, the scale weight slip will have a place for 4 different weights - which will correspond with the platforms in use when you ask for your weight. You can use/not use them anyway you like.

I use three of the sections. RV front axle on forward most, RV rear axle on second, and tow dolly and rear toad axle on third.

I have used the Cat scales once at the local Pilot. I just went in and asked the counter person what to do and what weights I wanted. He was very helpful and I had no problem. Life has gotten easier once I started asking for advice about things I am unfamilar with. Jim.
