Has anyone with the 319RLS model weighed their trailer fully loaded, I mean loaded with their personal belongings not necessary all the holding tanks full?

I weighed my once but with my tow vehicle. Can I just located the truck weight and deduct from the in hookup to get the trailer weight?
Trailer's 2 axles were on one scale, my rear tires of truck was on one scale and the front wheels were on another scale.

Weigh the truck first by itself, with you on the scale. Truck stop CAT scales are set up to weigh each axle group. Then hook up and weigh the combination. You will be able to see how much weight is being supported by which axles.

That's exactly what I did, weighed the truck alone with a full tank of diesel and no passengers.
Went back later with trailer loaded with all our stuff including food and clothes for a trip, full tank of diesel and no passengers.

The difference on the rear axle weight is your pin weight, that plus the trailer axles is your GVW for the trailer.
I never tow with anything more in the tanks other than perhaps enough fresh water to flush the toilet.

Hey Earl, just responded to your other post.
It was 7700-7800lbs, I can get the exact figure this evening as I still have the weigh ticket at home.

Mark, my ticket cat scale weight for my trailers axle was 8520, drive axles 5120, steer axle 5040. If my truck weighs around 7800lbs, what does the trailer weigh? 10,880lbs?

10,880 is likely very close, which is right in line with the GVWR for the 319RLS.
If I recall my empty rear axle weight was just over 3000lbs, so I'd guess your pin weight at around 2K.
How the weight is distributed makes a difference on pin weight.

I'll check my Cat Scale ticket for my truck this evening and get you an exact figure.

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't over weight on the trailer and or over weight on the trailers pin weigh on the truck.
