CAT three-pass weights

Now that we have our new TV, did the three-pass weight. Our AS is a 25FB FC with 2 axles. I had help setting up WDH on our new TV. I have no numbers, but I can say that the TV & AS both look very level relative to each other. Results are as follows:

New F-150 3.5L, EcoBoost, XLT (just me, no gear, WDH, full gas tank)
Steer - 3,180 lb 58%
Drive - 2,300 lb 42%
Gr Wt - 5,480 lb

F-150 & AS (but not fully loaded for a trip) - WDH not engaged
Steer - 2,820 lb 25%
Drive - 4,420 lb 39%
Trailer - 4,180 lb 37%
Gr Wt - 11,420 lb

F-150 & AS (but not fully loaded for a trip) - WDH engaged
Steer - 3,160 lb 28%
Drive - 3,040 lb 27%
Trailer - 5,220 lb 46%
Gr Wt - 11,420 lb

Well... the WDH did transfer more weight to the TV front axle. And to the trailer. But some questions.


1) My AS owners manual gives a 33%/33%/34% for Steer/Drive/Trailer. With the WDH, my Steer & Drive axles are really close (28 & 27%), but Trailer is "too heavy". Is that a problem?

2) I presume I can calculate the weight of our AS on that particular day as 5,940 lbs (11,420-5,480). Correct?

3) And that would mean 1,485 lbs on each tire. As per the "Load/Inflation Information for Goodyear Endurance Special Trailer (ST) Tires" chart, I have adjusted (reduced from 80 PSI!!) my tire pressure to 50 PSI. I could have gone as low as 30 PSI, but that sounds crazy low. And... I know the AS is really light right now as it is not packed to hit the road for a trip.

Will do it all again when we head out in a few weeks with the F-150 loaded up (gear in bed, people & dogs) & the AS loaded for travel. At this stage, just want to get a handle on the numbers, what they mean, and how they relate.

Thanks all!!
