Ok here's my questions.

How did you measure the pin weight?

What tires are you running?

And do you think you should shift a little weight to the passenger side?

There are a lot more numbers and info than I posted.

Weights were done with individual certified 20,000 lb scales.

Truck had each wheel weighed unhitched, then truck was weighed again with the 5er hitched up.

Truck unhitched = 7,150 lbs, Truck hitched up = 10,800 lbs
Difference is Pin Weight of 3,650 lbs

Running Firestone Transforce "E" Rated LT 265/75-R16

We can shift some weight to the other side but the Entertainment Center, Kitchen (Microwave, Stove, Refig, Pantry) and Bathroom is on the Drivers side of our Pinnacle.
Cannot move them, lol

Larry,

We currently have a 2500HD, yes we are overloaded on our Rear Axle / Single Wheel setup. Tires are Firestone Transforce 265/75-R16 and weight is at Max Tire rating.

GM's Gross Carrying Capacity Rating of our Truck is 22,000 lbs and we weighed in a a total 22,050 lbs (Truck and Trailer combined).

GM's 5th Wheel Towing Capacity Rating of our Truck is 15,300 lbs and our 5th Wheel weighed in at 14,900 lbs.

Yes, I see a 3500HD in our future, we need to save a little more before moving up.

Did you weigh with passengers, pets, and the other assorted stuff you carry in your truck?
