in regards to TV weight, how is the weight of the driver and front seat passenger applied? To the Steer axle, drive axle or split between the two?

Split between the two...but not equally. With most TVs you are physically closer to the front axle than the rear. You can figure the approximate split percentage by measuring the distance from about 6" in front of the seat back to an imaginary vertical line bisecting the front hub. Same thing for back hub. Divide each by the wheel base and you have your percentage. Multiply that times your weight and you have the pounds placed on each axle...approximately.

Pat,

It would be split, but hard to tell the ratio without weighing both in and out of the TV.
The #'s back the the trailer axles may even be out of the CAT scale limits, very likely less than 20lbs.

GM states in online literature that my Denali's GVRW is 7,100 lbs. However, the sticker on front inside door states 7,300. Which one is correct and why the difference?

The door sticker. Marketing literature is usually written before the design/engineering is completed. And you may have additional options on your unit.

Wouldn't the additional options increase the total weight and decrease the GVWR?

The door sticker GVWR is about best braking/handling performance given the usual driver. The tire/axle ratings are the real concern.

I don't know where GM has posted the 7100 number, but on their main web site, if you select Crossovers/SUVs -> Yukon Denali -> Features & Specs -> Capabilities -> Trailering & Payload, you will find the 7300 pound number.

My 2010 has 7300 pounds on its door sticker.

According to Model Information - Online Ordering Guide,
the GVWR is 7100# for 2WD and 7300# for 4WD.

Thus the confusion. Regardless, I was able to re-weigh my Denali and Airstream today. Attached are the CAT scale tickets.
As I mentioned earlier, last week the Blue Ox tech weighed my tongue with a result of 1,050 lbs.

The following is from the the sticker on my front door
GVWR - 7,300
GAWR FRT - 3,550
GAWR RR - 4,200

Your comments are appreciated

That looks pretty good. I say run it that way and tell us how you like it. I also suggest trying it with the WD one link tighter and see if you can feel any difference.

By the way, what is the payload number shown on the tire pressure sticker on the door frame? I'm curious to see if the vehicle has grown heavier over the years (though it also varies according to options included).


Enjoy!

I had to put it on the 9th link to get front end from acting so squirrely. Here's a pic of the sticker. Click image for larger version
