Nope, I just tell everyone that reads suggestions that are out of manufacturers limits to, before following them, just: a) Realize that it's not the reply sources TV or trailer they are risking, b) consider the source, and c) be sure that person will be there for the court case that can follow as a result of following their recommendation.

Easy Peasy

Thinking outside the box can sometimes get you into one unexpectedly.

Jack, I weighed it trailer and tongue on both scales. Tow vehicle was 10-15 feet away from the scale each time. Repeat, trailer only, no tow vehicle.

Oh, and my tow vehicle is a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country, 3.8L engine.
No problems there. Added a xmission cooler. Tows like a charm ......
