Vectra on a diet
On our way to the Ventura Dog Show we stopped at the Flying J on I-10 in Phoenix and used their scale to weigh each wheel. They charged us $7 for about 20 minutes of time on their scale. Our total coach weight was 31,020 lbs. We had full fuel, water, food and dogs. According to my owner's manual the GVWR should be no more than 32,000 lbs. so we are close to limit on this one.
Here are what the corners weighed:
RF - 6,060
LF - 5,960
RR - 9,869
LR - 9,160
There is a minor error in the total of the corners vs when we weighed in whole rig. No idea why...
What intrigues me is why there would be a 700 lbs difference between the right and left rear weights. Any ideas?
Of course, we tow a 3,500 lb Jeep, so our GCWR of about 35,000 lbs is well within the 42,000 lbs rating for the Vectra.
Would you adjust the air pressure higher on the right rear for the 700 pound difference?
