Seneca 6 tire weighing

I am wondering if anyone has weighed all six of their Seneca tire load. With full fuel and four occupants, empty waste tanks and 40 gallons of water. I recently used the cat scale and got 8860 front axel, 15920 rear which with the tires on my unit would provide an inflation rate to 70 psi. That would be assuming weight distribution across axel was balanced. I am wondering if any one has measured all locations to see how much variance there is across axels.

There are services that do this but they are primarily in fla and at rv shows.

Check with local law enforcement. If they have portable scales they might do it for you when they're set up someplace.

No I run 85 cold due to not knowing what the actual weights are. I doubt I would go to 70 but 75-80 might be reasonable. It is amazing how much less harsh the ride is at 85 then at 100.

Worth the effort to ask. Thanks.

In all the time I have been over scales... they all were taking weight "per Axle" or sets of Axles together in tandem. I suppose someone with a portable scale can do the weigh you are looking for, but the only ones I know that have them are UHP trucks.

As a general unwritten rule, every time they take those portable scales off the UHP Truck, they always come with a "Notice to Appear" at no extra charge!

I'm quite satisfied with the weigh we get at Cat Scales. Our last three have been with full fuel/water/propane/beverages/gear for at least a weeks trip:

Steer - Drive - Trailer
8860 16540 7740
8980 15600 8820
8660 16140 7560

Hitch weight usually runs around 800# or more, depending on how the trailer was loaded.

I bet your Jayco yellow sticker probably says something close to 85-90 psi. Go with that posted pressure.
