Last couple of days have been spent going over all the systems, checking to see if everything works. I got the refrigerator working on LP gas. Figured out the thermostat, when the light is green in the on/off position it's off, eventually... Then the green light goes off after the A/C turns off. Reading through the options the original owners had added, I noticed that they had an extra 60 gal. fresh water tank installed. I got out my creeper and looked around under there, and the extra 60 gallon tank is behind the main tank, between the axles. So I can carry 165 gallons, but since the primary tank is in front of the axles, it makes the tongue weight too high for my truck.
Tomorrow we are going to dump all the water out of the fresh water tanks and take it to the scales. I'm hoping I can position it so I can get the truck front axle, truck rear axle and trailer weight separately. Then I will disconnect and use my tongue weight scale to see how much the trailer is adding to my poor old '98 GMC 3/4 ton Sierra.
My big fear is that we will be traveling to Kansas and have a problem. It's been a great truck, done many a mile towing the flat bed trailer with the Jeep on it at about 8000 lbs. but this trailer will be almost 2000 lbs. heavier.
I need to do a search here and see if there is a way to check how much LP gas is in my tanks. Does anyone know how much an empty 5 gallon LP tank weighs?
I will do a search and see if there are any easy ways to keep track of how much LP gas I have available.
