Can BetterWeigh Be Used on Truck with Air Bags or Auto Level Suspension


I have a 2015 GMC 2500 HD I use to trailer a fifth wheel. I have air bag suspension installed to auto level the vehicle. Will This product still work without making modifications?

Yes, the BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale # C51701 will absolutely work on your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 that's equipped with air bag suspension. The BetterWeigh will use information from the Sierra's module and VIN but you are also able to make manual adjustments/calibrations to accommodate features like this.

When initially calibrating the unit you will just want to drop the air bags down to their lowest level (typically 5 to 10 psi) or turn the auto-level feature off on your truck's instrument cluster. Load up the truck or attach your trailer when finished and then fill the bags back up/turn the auto-level back on.

I have attached a detailed video demonstration on this product that you can check out. Our installer actually touches on using the BetterWeigh with auto-leveling systems starting at around the 5:50 mark.
