Weighing your coach

Hi -- trying to determine accurate tire pressure. Went to a Love's and had the coach weighed on their CAT scales. However, the output from that results in 4 weights; Steer Axle, Drive Axle, Trailer Axle (Toad) and Gross Weight. When I contact Michelin they tell me they will not recommend tire pressures unless I get "Corner Weights".

Anyone know where I can get the coach weighed and the result be the "Corner Weights"?

Thanks

I go to the local truck scale, not the service station scales, where they weight dump trucks and such, price is the same, but you can weight anyway you like. Just put in truck scales in google and you should be able to pick from some.

I'm not sure all highway weigh stations are the same but in Quebec, if the station isn't actively weighing trucks (ie the lights aren't flashing) the scales are still on. We just drive on to get axle weights then back up and scoot over to get only lefts or rights on the platforms!

WA is the same way, in fact they leave the scales on even if the station is closed and there is usually enough room to do at least full axle and passenger side.

I go to the local farmers Co-op. I can weigh each wheel(s) and they charge
$ 5.00 for the morning donut fund.

If you have access to a military installation most have certified scales for weighing. That's how I got my 4 corner weights.
