We have finished preparing for our trip to Prince Edward Island. The last things we did were to seal the front window and weigh the trailer.
We found during a particularly heavy rain that water would run down the window's face, slip by the bottom front seal and leak into the trailer. I stuck a flat screw driver between the seal and window on the outside and forced a small amount of 3M 5200 between the seal and window. Gradually walking the screw driver down the length of the window's seal. Afterwards I carefully removed any 5200 from the window. It rained last night, no leak. Three times will be science.
We weighed the trailer using our tire patch method. We hope to verify it on an official scale when we leave Wednesday. The hitch weight
was weighed with a bathroom scale and I'm sure more accurate.
16 weighs 2330 #s that includes a hitch weight
of 195 #s.
Our new Goodyear Marathon trailer tires
are rated for 3960#s, weight
on the tires
is 2135 #s putting us at 54% of trailer tire capacity at 50#s cold pressure.
Our Honda loaded to go with fuel, and passengers weighs about 3900 pounds.
