On the where to weigh an EV question, you might try a public scale like Mayflower at SE Powell and 42nd or I know folks have shown up at Metro garbage transfer stations in NW Portland and Oregon City with a boat or trailer that they want to weigh - and the scales there are very accurate. I'm not sure if they will for sure do this for free or not, so you might try coming with a (free) small bag of glass or metal to recycle and you should still get to go across the scales. If you ask nicely, they might even let you weigh front and rear axle weights if you want the F/R weights.

For those that are interested I finally put some pictures of my new truck up
on the Evalbum site. There is still lots of test and tune stuff to do, and
I don't have all the wires tucked away and such so I only put up pictures of
the parts that look complete for now :-) Until it is approved and available
for the general public you should be able to see it here.

There are truck scales on some of the hwys in the forest areas around Portland.
I remember seeing one or two on a trip to Fort Clatsup. They are free to use,
and usually unattended, but may only give weight to nearest 50 lbs.
