Ok AirForums Community - I'm officially cornfused!
Went to local cat scales this morning. Got on platform, pressed button and told the operator I thought I needed 3 weigh ins. Not a good start. She was pretty ticked off. "can't let you do that" she said. Thankfully a trucker offered his advice to get the weights and not tick her off. So this is out of order and still incorrect but it's what I have to start with.
Picture below is 3 trips. From left to right it's the full rig with 6" of WD jack lift on the Propride. Second one is truck only (parked and disconnected the trailer). After doing the math, I called Sean as it seemed odd I was losing 200 lbs off the steer axle. He suggested another inch on the jacks and the third ticket is that weight. VERY ODD since with the additional WD applied that took 60 more lbs off the steer axle??
Ok, next pic is my hand math of the delta on the axles based on all 3 tickets. The trucker I mentioned earlier said I'd be able to calculate the tongue wight after the first 2 trips. He didn't say how so I guessed - but my guess changed the TW after the third trip so I guess I didn't find the right formula. :-/
I'm WIDE open to your thoughts, insights, questions and suggestions. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
A couple additional notes. One one of these trips I sat in the truck (I'm pretty sure it was the 3rd one) while the other 2 I was standing on the steer axle scale outside the truck as the operator wasn't giving me any time to adjust....
Second - the PP jacks are connected in the middle of 3 holes and I have 1000lb bars. If I connect these at the bottom hole, will that increase the push of weight to the steer axle?
