Remember a 40 gal. full water tank weighs o/a 320 lbs.
This really should be a "must do" for people towing on a regular basis, to get an accurate picture of how much weight is involved as it can really add up. A good way to do it is stop at a CAT scale on your way out on a trip and not only weight the TT, but the tow vehicle.
