Load the trailer as needed, hitch it up, and take it to be weighed at a truck scale. Unhook the trailer and weigh it. Use cement blocks or a jack to make the trailer level and weigh again. Subtract the unlevel weight from the level weight to find the tongue weight. Then divide the tongue weight by the level weight to find the percentage.
