Well - if you you promise to tow ONLY when there is a full moon - and its directly overhead - there is a tiny bit more... That's all I can think of.

Nothing cerebral here just a tip for some.
If I need to weigh my trailer I go to a local grain elevator, quarry or landfill.
I go without the trailer and talk to the person in the scalehouse and describe what
I need and why. I ask when it might be most convenient. I make sure I know where I can drop the trailer out of the way. Sometimes I can weigh just the vehicle on the first
stop if I've got it loaded the way it is when I go out and then the next time just pull the loaded trailer on and get the total on the total weight. It has always been free and I am good at saying thank you. Works for me. For tongue weight I borrow a Sherline and get a little help from my friends.
