I was digging through threads about cat scale weights, and was hoping some clarification could be provided about this 10% rule? Does it mean that there should be no more than a 10% weight difference between the weights of front and rear TV axles? That is, when hitched with weight distribution, if the front TV axle weighs in at 3000lbs, then the rear TV axle shouldn't weigh more than 3300lbs?
Or is it that the unhitched front and rear TV weights shouldn't differ by more than 10% from the hitched front and rear TV weights? That is, if unhitched the front axle TV weight is 3000 lbs, then hitched it shouldn't be less than 2700 lbs nor more than 3300lbs? And likewise for the rear TV axle...
