Weigh Stations

Does anyone know of a weigh station around the central Florida/Orlando area that does individual wheel weight besides the front and rear axle weight?

I haven't been able to find one that is flat on the ground so I can do one side at a time, most are raised scales.

Is it really that important to have individual wheel weight versus axle weight when trying to determine correct tire pressure?

Axle weights are fine although if your running hot on one side all the time then you probably need to increase 5 psig on the axle

All tires on an axle must have the same psig

Balancing the weight in an RV is good and then you need individual weights

The folks checking individual tires are usually wanting to optimize at the lowest inflation possible

I run a minimum of 10% safety margin avoid overheating tires

Check Escapees. I believe, but am not certain, they have a location in Florida that often does weighing.

Weigh Stations

https://rvsafety.com does all wheel weighing. They generally do it at rallies but I see they only have one listed - probably due to many rallies being canceled. They also have online courses that you can take - for a fee.
