I weigh the combo, go park the trailer and than weigh the truck. That way you can figure your pin weight. CAT scales will give you two passes for the fee.

The landing gear are father back than your pin (probably by at least 6 feet), so they'll carry more weight than the pin. As such, I would expect the axle weight to go up when hooked up. I'm not sure I expected it to be by that much, but it depends on how much weight is over the front. Remember, for every pound ahead of the landing gear, a pound is removed from the axle.

Beach, That didn't occur to me but you may be onto something here.
75% of the 14,740 is 11,055# which is pretty close to the 11,140# from the scale. (I'm assuming 25% pin weight).
