Do you have accurate four corner weights on your MH?

(For those reading who don't know, 4 corner weight is - it is knowing the weight of each corner, ie front left, front right, right rear, etc - this is important in determining minimum tire pressure)

Please post briefly with weight, and was the MH completely ready to go on trip, fuel, water, people, food, ect. If you were sort stuff, please briefly state.

Tire pressures have been covered in other threads. Please ONLY COMMENT on this thread if you have actual weights. I don't mean to be rude, but some of these threads go on and on and on with comments which don't even pertain to the thread topic itself.

My guess, is there is less than a 10% side to side difference, for example on the front axle, one side may be 3,600 lbs. and the other side 3,200 lbs.

Let's see what factual weights we can come up with. Your contributions are appreciated.

2003 Phaeton 40RH full fuel, 3/4 full of fresh water, empty grey & black tanks, 1000# motorcycle on the rear.
FRT. Left -- 4775
FRT. Rt -- 4880
RR. Left -- 9400
RR. Rt. -- 10700

I have upgraded to a larger tires to carry the weight. The right is heavier because of the refrigerator and my big tool box are on that side.

2000 Georgie Boy 36'DP
LF3700
RF3550
LR6050
RR6350

Full fuel, fresh water, propane, all travel equipment - everything except co-pilot in her chair

In addition:
2/3 Gray tank, 2/3 Black tank (trying to simulate additional passenger weight - would never travel with full fresh water and this much in holding tanks - actually travel with 1/2 full fresh water tank or less)
Was consistant with CAT scale weight obtained about an hour before individual wheels were taken.

I finely found a place that could do 4 corner weighing, for the cost of two tickets @ $7 each.

Front left 3500
Front right 3480

Rear left 7020
Rear right 7480

According to the Michelin inflation table for XRV 235/80 R22.5, with a 500 pound buffer as they suggest, the tires should be inflated to 90 psig all the way around. Manufacturer said 85 psig and dealer said 100 psig.

I know the pros and cons of over inflation and under inflation. I was running 110 psig (at Michelin's suggestion) until I got it weighed. I don't know if dropping it 20 psig is going to make it any smoother, but that's where I'm going.

I did, but it has been three years now and I have changed the loading somewhat since then, both location and what is on board. Gotta do another weigh-in.
