Many threads on the subject...
Had it weighed. 400 over on the GVWR somewhere. Had a full tank+ (to the brim) and 1/3 fresh water. Can't discard anything and all OHC half empty. Not sure where it's coming from. Under GCWR by 4k+ lbs. 4900 on the front, 10k on the rear, 3560 on the towed (picked up weight somewhere here too) - 18460 overall.

Not exactly sure how to read the tire inflation chart. Once saw this for the same tire rated at 9880 for D. Seems I'm little light up front and heavy out back. Wonder if I positioned myself right on the scales.

Don't want to be anal but should I be 'worried'?
