Question Tongue weight of 222RB?

Hi, checking in to see if anyone has weighed their "real world" tongue on a 222RB...?

Wondering how much above the published tongue weight of 524 pounds you're at?

And, do published tongue weights include the weight of the two propane tanks (either empty or full) and the battery?

Thanks!

Canít give you an answer but I have always wondered about the accuracy of the brochures. I guess accessories added change weights. For my 2013 ZT260BH brochure says 5944lbs. Sticker inside shows actually weight at 6144lbs. Tongue weight in brochure has it at 884lbs. I recently weighed camper before a big trip to find out for sure. Camper weighed in at 6204 with a tongue weight of 858lbs. Both 30lb tanks full and a group 24 battery. I also added a power tongue jack from original manual.

Hers is a link for a home made tongue scale that won't break the bank.

Ok, weighed it (twice) with a 1000 lb digital scale... with two batteries, and two propane tanks (full) the tongue weight is 522 lbs.

Looks like the manufacturer's estimate is dead on.
