Weight Distribution formula in Excel

A month or so ago I downloaded a very nice excel spreadsheet that someone had posted on either this forum or on RV Forum that Allowed you to input the following: TV WheelBase, Dist from TV R.Axle to hitch ball, Tongue Wt., Length from Trailer Ball to mid point of axle system, Length of WD bars. The Excel Output is: Extra load on TV rear axle before chains tightened, Uplift on front steering axle when trailer attached but chains not tightened, Then with chains tightened to bring steering axle back to original ht. the Outputs are: Ttl chain tension to restore steering axle to level, reduced loading on TV rear axle as a result of chain tightening, final load on TV rear axle with trailer attached and chains tightened, load transfered to the trailer axles.

If someone has it can they post it so I can download a copy? Thanks

Those outputs sound like the spreadsheet Nick Crowhurst developed. See here and roll down to post #69.
