Just a little note here. If you only weigh indiviual axles you will quickly make your self nuts. The weight of each individual component will not add up the total weight of the whole rig. You need the whole rig on the scale to get a true weight of the whole rig. Adios, John

[QUOTE=RLS;748270]Thanks for the link to the Sherline Tongue Scale! I just ordered the 2,000 lbs. one. I will be making some kind of drive on ramps to get each weight of the wheels. Both Airstream and TV. No more CAT Scales!!!

It is a hydraulic pressure scale with a 2k limit I wouldn't attempt using it
to weigh anything but the tongue. The instructions that come with the scale will outline it's limits.

The CAT scales were pretty intimidating the first time we went to weigh our first AS. Like anything Airstream the more you do it the easier it gets.
Whenever I'm not sure that I'm loaded properly I stop, usually takes less than 20min. It's really the best and easiest way To balance your rig.
