Where do you go to get a motorhome weighed? Do I get a total weight, a front + back, a left/right side, or all four sides? Empty or with what I put in when I go camping for a weekend/week? How do I know how to adjust the tire pressure with respect to weights?
One of the easiest places to get a coach weighed is a local truck stop,or truck repair facility. If there happens to be a trucking company or moving company in your area,these facilities also have scales and may weigh your coach for a small fee. In my area,there is a bulk oil delivery company that weighs it's vehicles and they permit folks to get their coaches weighed there. Check your telephone directory yello pages...
While "front and back" weights would be sufficient,the best way to know what your coach is doing on those tires is to weigh all four corners and adjust the air pressure accordingly.
REMEMBER....you ALWAYS have both tires on the same axle at the same pressure and ALWAYS use the higher weight for your pressure calculation.
Load the coach as if you were going camping,as best as possible....You may estimate certain things,as the weight of occupants and clothes and so forth...
is the link to the 2005 spec sheet for your coach, the 2004 link won't come up...
You should have a page in your coach that details the weights of your coach....It's inside a cabinet on the back of a door,or possibly on the wall somewhere...use this as a guide as well.
ALSO.....are you on a Ford or Workhorse Chassis??
