You put your steers on the forward platform, drives on the middle platform, and you trailer is already on the back one.
If ya want to split ur axles tell the scale master when ur up there u want to split ur trailer axles and weigh them seperatly
That will only give u total axle weight not independent weight on spread axle
Unless the total is over 40k he won't have more than 20k on either axel.
Depends on how the freight is loaded. And him being new its good to figure out how ur axles distribute the weight
and if u are running a 53ft spread, im convinced they distribute weght differently than a 48 ... ive had 21 and 19 on a 53ft spread before
Go up for a reweigh and tell them u have a spread axle and want to split the trailer axles and weigh them seperatly.
