Weighing Process

Pre-Weigh Data Sheet

In order to weigh your RV you will need to complete one of our Data Sheets before your appointment time.  In some instances this may be educational for you as you will have to locate the Weight Ratings for your RV and tow vehicle, as applicable, as well as the tire information from the side wall.

The Data Plate for your motorhome will be near the driver’s seat, but the Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) will be on a data sheet located elsewhere in the coach.

The Data Plate for your tow vehicle will most likely be on the door jamb; however, the Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) will be in the owner’s manual in the trailering/towing section.

The data plates show the weight ratings in pounds and kilograms. Be sure to pick pounds, not kilo’s.


 

Motorhome Weighing

If we are weighing you at your site it will have to conform to our levelness and firmness requirements in order to obtain accurate weights and not damage our scales. When we arrive at your site, we will verify and input the information you have noted on the data sheet into our computer system.  With on site weighing of a motorhome we will place the scales in front of your wheels and guide you onto them and then have you back off of them.  You will be moving forward/backwards about two feet or so.  Your slides need to be in and your jacks up.  If your motorhome has air suspension it will need to be aired up in travel mode.  On departure weighing we will place the scales in front of your wheels and have you drive onto them and then drive forward off of them after the readings are taken.


 

5th Wheel Weighing

If we are weighing you at your site it will have to conform to our levelness and firmness requirements in order to obtain accurate weights and not damage our scales. When we arrive at your site, we will verify and input the information you have noted on the data sheet into our computer system. Have your tow vehicle and trailer hitched up, slides in, jacks up and ready for travel.  We will weigh the tow vehicle first and then the trailer.  The rig will have to be moved forward/backward several feet to complete the weighing.  You will then park the trailer and unhitch so we can weigh the tow vehicle again without the trailer attached.

For Departure Weighing the process  is essentially the same as above except reversed.  We will weigh your tow vehicle, by appointment, sometime during the event and then weigh the entire rig at our departure weighing site.


Travel Trailer Weighing

If we are weighing you at your site it will have to conform to our levelness and firmness requirements in order to obtain accurate weights and not damage our scales. When we arrive at your site, we will verify and input the information you have noted on the data sheet into our computer system. Have the trailer ready to hitch up, slides in, jacks up and ready for travel, before we arrive. We will weigh the tow vehicle first and then have you hitch up to the trailer.  We will be able to immediately tell if your spring/load leveling bars are adjusted correctly and allow you to make an adjustment, if needed.

For Departure Weighing we will weigh your tow vehicle, by appointment, sometime during the event and then weigh the entire rig at our departure weighing site.  You will have the time to make a spring/load leveling bar adjustment at that time.
