Weight Distribution

New to everything: RVing, travel trailer, towing and even the truck.
We have a Chevy Silverado pulling a Z-1 231FB "Zoey"
This is what I know: Zoey weighs 4644 could not find any more info like CCC etc.
The truck gave me this info: 3925 GAWR FRT, 3750 GAWR RR
6400 GVWR
we put a roundbar weight distributing hitch on it with a tongue weight of 800 lbs and it can pull 10,000.
I know you still need to add weight of items you put in trailer, LP tanks and water. What other weight do we need to be concerned with ? Where would we weigh in if we need to ?
I think we are safe but please tell me if there is anything else I need to find out or add it. Thank you !
Everyone has been so great answering this newbies ?
THANK YOU !

Every person, pet, food, drink, tools, water hose, sewer hose, LP, water, tv, dishes, silverware,paper plates. Think what you have in your house that you use on a daily basis, that you might use while camping or traveling. Any and all options that have been installed on your trailer. (awning)?

Anything you will be adding/putting in the trailer or truck will all count.

As far as weighing, is there a truck stop close to you that has a scale? Other wise some of the feed mills also have scales. Ask around locally. You might be surprised what there is available in your area that has a scale.

If you do find a place to weigh, try to do it with everything loaded like you would have it for heading out camping/traveling.

Thank you, yes there is a truck stop out by the highway. Are there charges for this ? Just wondering. Also when there is a weigh station on the interstate, do we need to stop ? Really ripe here. Thank you !

There is a fee to weigh you trailer on the scale. Last time I weighed mine it cost $15. No, you do not have to stop at any weight scales. They are for commercial vehicles.
