Lake Casitas Rally Volunteering

Way to go Fred. Thanks again for volunteering to bring your equipment and weigh the trailers again, and for FREE ..

We just had our unit weighed .. $15

This is a bargain folks.. Fred knows what he is doing - and does a terrific job of organizing the trailers to be weighed.

================================================== =====
How's this Fred?

  3. you drive onto the scales (about 1 foot forward)
  4. I record the wheel (axle) weights
    Attachment 22306
  5. You back off to your original position, Chock your tires, and Un-Hitch
  6. you level up, but DO NOT set up stabilizers
  7. I place a scale under the tongue coupler
  8. You raise the tongue jack so the coupler is on my scale
  9. I record the tongue weight
    Attachment 22307
  10. you lower the tongue jack, and reset stabilizers
  11. I remove my scales
For those of you with 5th Wheel trailers, I will do step #7 in the bed of your pick-up truck, just behind your hitch.

Cool This all depends upon scale availability

I was not able to bring my scales to the 2012 Oregon Gathering because the company I work for had a customer with a rental contract during that time period. The same applies to this time period; unfortunately I won't know if they're available or not until the very last minute.

Robert and I will be in site B8, arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning. Come to the site anytime on Saturday to ask for a weigh-in, or come to any site where I am performing a weigh-in. Make sure I write down your name and site number on one of my forms in my red clipboard box.

Hi Fred

Everyone will understand if you are unable to bring the scales. We appreciate what you do and will totally understand if you can't. Thanks for volunteering to help.

I need to have my tongue weight measured. We got the truck and trailer weighed this morning at a public scale, but they were unable to do the tongue weight. I bought a scale at Bed Bath and Beyond that can weigh up to 400 Lbs, but the tongue came in at 454 before the scale came up with an error message.

So now I know it's 454lbs or more, but would like to get the correct weight. So sign me up! And thanks for doing this! I am in Space B6.
Thanks
Karen

Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale

We have a Sherline Tongue Weight Scale - We paid $135 for it and would like to sell it for $75.

We don't use it every time we take a trip, but it sure comes in handy to see the tongue weight and not be guessing.

If anyone is interested we can bring it to the Lake Casitas Rally. Click on my name on the left and send us an email..

Carol and Jim

Lake Casita (anyone going w/a dinette trailer ?)

Not sure if this is the proper way to ask ? I was wondering if anyone will be attending this rally that has a 13 footer with a front dinette. I will be there with a pwerris pacer and i'm looking for ideas on how to do this conversion/ table size etc?

Thanks in advance

Hoping to hear from someone that is willing to let me check out their trailer...we will be in site E21

Cindy & Alan
