What's Your "Scaled" Tongue/Pin Weight?

Thought I would start a "scaled" Tongue Weight/Pin Weight thread since JOF Members are frequently asking for actual 'real world' feedback on a particular Jayco model's scaled loaded Tongue Weight or Pin Weight.

Please provide "SCALED" weight only....., no guessing!

Please provide the following information or any other data that may be relevant to your Pop-Up, HTT, TT, FW, TH, etc.:

* Jayco Model & Year (BOLD type).

* Scaled Tongue Weight or Pin Weight (and scaled gross weight if available).

* Scale Method (CAT Scale, Sherline Scale, Bathroom Scale).

* Brand/Model Hitch.

* Personal Loading Habits (conservative, moderate, heavy).

* Added Loading conditions (full fresh water tank, Dual batteries, etc.).

Bob

2016 Eagle HT29.5 BHOK.

Listed trailer weights from factory
1695 pin, 10,400 axle rating, 11,000 GVWR

Scale weight when loaded
2000 pin, 8,800 axles, 10,800 gross

PS we have to be careful with weights. We can easily overload the trailer by putting too much in trailer or carrying too much water (fresh, gray and black). We found out that 2400lb of cargo is not that much

I have yet to go, but it is in the plans for June 29th when I get my trailer from storage. I'm going to give it a try "empty" first (just a bit of everyday stuff we left in from our last trip), then at the end of July when we go on our big trip I'll pass by the scales again (fully loaded with food, bikes, kids, etc).

Everyone on here is talking about how tongue-heavy the X213 (I have a 2016), so I want to know what I am starting with do I don't have to repack too much when we go over the scales fully loaded.

I also bought a tongue scale (only up to 770lbs), so I'll check that after my first trip to the cat scales to see how accurate it is so I can verify before we go.
