I can't imagine a scale system that gives readouts while under way or how useful that would be, not to mention the cost of a built in system.  When I was in US&R (FEMA) we had portable scales (pads) that we could use for our vehicles that...

Over the road Semi trucks have available for purchase a "Weighing System" that give you a general idea as to the weight distribution at each axle. I believe it works on the air pressure rise in each air bag so you can have a reasonable idea as to...

So, I  have talked about the fact that the Ultimate Handling is to simply have your Tire Pressures correctly inflated, to achieve that "Cloud 9 Ride"  we all Love about our Uni-Coaches/Homes with full Air Bags!  I have now found the path to that...

I was thinking, something like this, but this is only for a 4 Way system, although I could use a two way, in combination, and have 2 switches, one for each Quadrant, and a Selector to combine them all! Looks like I'm in for some real fun?  Any...

Most times after an rv crash most of its contents is spread across the highway and the walls and rood are usually in the on coming traffic lane.. They will not scrape everything up and actually weigh it.... Anytime I have seen a trailer or rv......

Haven't looked closely at all your links, but the first one appears to be a fancy air pressure gauge.  Not sure how much that would actually tell you about the coach weight (total and distribution).  In the front of our 8-bag coaches, both...

The trucks I loaded here is Los Angeles when I was in the loader rental business, 30 years ago had the scales calibrated to the rear air bags and the front hydraulic system on the ram that dumped the trailer. The trucks had all been weighed empty...

I think the calibrated pressure gauge is a great idea.  If you can load up and weight to confirm gross vehicle weight marking the gauge...

I know this is dangerous but thinking while I type. 

My coach has HWH Active Air.  You can look and see air bag pressures for front right and left, Drive right and left, and also tag right and left.  So if the coach gets weighted and the air bag...

I agree overloading is a bad thing but when your wheel fell off maybe something else was going on. How hot was the spindle on

We use a regular low pound per square inch gauge on each axle. A fully loaded truck and trailer the maximum pressure would be less than 40 lbs. We load then check weight, if it is correct,  we write the pressure down, then a quick look at the...
