GVW

I just came back from a scale in town, I weighed in at 14,900 and 5120 on the front axle. The GVW that is stamped on the tag says, 10K on the rear and 5K on the front with 14,500 for the GVW. All my water tanks are empty along with the fridge, no clothes, no food, and baggage compartments are near empty. Something isn't correct or is this tagged wrong? What are some of you folks GVW for a 34' P30 chassis?

I had a 1990 27' Class A on a P30 chassis. Chevy rated the chassis at 11,200 lbs. The RV manufacturer added front air bags and upped the GVWR to 12,000 lbs. Do you have air bags installed?
