I originally set mine up by having the car and van on a level section of road them measured the height to the center if the towball, accepting that it was hitched. I then brought it back on the drive and using bathroom scales and some wood etc I measured the weight with the arrangement set at the same height as when the car was hitched. I then used my Milenco gauge to see what it read. After that I used the Milenco for checking on the drive before a trip as I “calibrated “ it against the bathroom scales over the range 60-80 kg.
I did do some checks on whether noseweight changed when we returned from a trip but it hardly varied as we are quite disciplined in how we stow stuff and fluid loading in the flush tank.

Also when I checked the noseweight unhitched I always have the brake off and wheels chocked.
