RE: double towing

Georgia allows doubles but first trailer must be a 5th wheel. Same with AZ. I dont know what the total length requirment is because I dont but a lot of people with side-by-sides do it

RE: Truck too tall for 5th wheel

Learned from the purchase of my first 5th wheel. With tape measure in hand knowing the height of my bed rails and the plate on the 5th wheel hitch I measured a lot of 5th wheel trailers and some would not even come close to working

RE: Forwarding Mail

We are preparing to start full time RVing in our 5th wheel unit. 1. Looking for an organization in Colorado that provides forward mail to us while on the road. We currently live in Colorado and want to maintain our Colorado residency. 2. We are planning on selling our property. Our son lives in Colorado. Is it permissible and legal for us to use his home address as our legal residence? Thank you for your time and effort in helping us. Yes, it is allowable to use your son's address. We used my parents and then my sisters since 2007. In fact the State of Michigan demanded we provide an address (not PO Box) in order to renew our drivers license. Obviously, make sure your son is OK and will forward any mail that winds up there as a result. Your legal residency in terms of voting rights stays with the last state where you were officially a resident anyway. There are mail forwarding services (SD & FL are most popular) and they can give you an address to act as a residence. SD & FL are popular due to no income tax...but be careful of other costs. DMV's and insurance companies want a physical address. When I moved from CA to AZ I gave them an address of a campground for my physical and my mail drop for mailing address and the MVD and insurance co were fine with it and I told them do not send any mail to my physical address. Now that I have a stick house that became my physical. My drivers lic has my mailing address which by the way can be anywhere you want it to be

RE: Trouble with California

2) go find another, less traveled road into CA. This is the ridiculousness of California. The CDFA's own web site states they have only 16 Ag. Checkpoints... I hesitate to guess the number of roads that enter California but it's probably a lot more than 16. So, in true California style it would appear that, while making themselves feel good about doing the right thing, they are actually spitting into an ocean and hoping the water level will rise... One also wondered how many species invasive to the US have initially entered through California but a google search is quick to list species invasive to California but reticent to point the finger at California. I can be pretty sure that the Africanized Bees came through Central America and California to infest the warmer states... One wonders where the Ag. checks were on them leaving the state. Of course, with all the international trade being shipped in and out of the 7th largest economy in the world, (that can't keep it's streets clean of human fecal waste), through it's rather large ports one wonders why they are so very keen on keeping stuff out of the state from locations in the various states of the USA but offer absolutely no protection to those various states from it's own mistakes by having Ag. stations on the outbound lanes of the 16 roads they feel are a "threat".... But then, that's the silliness of California... So no big deal they tell me go back to AZ. Just go up or down the river 5 miles there is another bridge into CA with no over eager inspector

RE: Trouble with California

When I come for AZ to CA on I-40 they either ask if I have any fire wood or where did you come from today. The answer to the fire wood is no and the other answer is home

RE: Trouble with California

I wonder if I would be arrested and deported for that. We got searched once at the international border, cost us a tomato. I guess he border agent needed a tomato for his sanwhich

RE: Break away cable

Been placing the loop in the cable over the arm of hitch for 20+ yrs. Dang....didn't know it was 'incorrect' BS! Can be dangerous on some hitches. The cable can snag and pull the handle causing the hitch to release. Really! how does that happen when you put a pin in the hole

RE: Where is emissions sticker??

Now Im really confused. Cummins sent me a letter saying the 2003 HR Endeavor diesel didn't have an emissions sticker. They sent me the EPA certification but doesn't mention CA? Now Im really worried. Does anyone have a picture they could email me of the emissions sticker so I ca look into getting a replacement. Has anyone utilized the low use exemptions? My fear is that I just spent $45K on a motorhome that I can't register?? I'm confused here. If Cummins said in a letter that it didn't have an emissions sticker, what are you wanting a replacement for? I can't imagine even the state of California would require something that doesn't exist. Or maybe they would.....Another reason I have zero desire to ever visit CA again. Ed I can imagine CA and their stupid laws. If you buy and older car from another state even though it has a cat converter if its not a 50 state or CA approved cat you cant register it

RE: Double Towing Length Laws

So length requirments must be different for commericial than RV's. Some of the trailers are 51' and I know those tractors have to be longer than 14'

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

I live in CA. I applied for the endorsement and the DMV clerk told me there was no such thing and referred me to the commercial DMV office. Her boss happened to walk by and asked me to follow him. He had me fill out an application for a 5th wheel endorsement and gave me two separate written tests. Eye examine, but no driving test or physical examine. He asked me what I drive and never made note of it. I passed the test and have the endorsement. The problem is the DMV manual is not well written and most DMV personnel just do not know. Even better, ask a traffic cop. They don't know either. Risk; cops don't know so a ticket is unlikely. An accident could be a problem if the insurance company knows the law. If you do not have endorsement, get in an accident and they know about endorsement, you loose. When we lived in CA we went to DMV to get that endorsement and not one person in the office we went to had clue. If it hadnt been for someone from Sac there doing some training we would likely still be there. And your right most cops dont have a clue either. The local ones dont even care. I ask a CHP PIO office at a booth at the fair and he didnt have clue either but he finally admitted most of them wouldnt know either. He said the guys doing commerical enforcement would know. There are 7XX of them and 3 million of us so the chances of getting a ticket is pretty slim

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

When I moved to Arizona and got my drivers license the MVD clerk ask whats this, referring to the indorcment. I told her and she said honey you dont need any of that here until you get to 26,000 lbs

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

I don’t agree that the CHP’s license stops are unconstitutional. What authority do you have other than a quote from the federal Constitution? Vehicle Code Section 2400 (b) The commissioner shall enforce all laws regulating the operation of vehicles and the use of the highways except that, on ways or places to which Section 592 makes reference, the commissioner shall not be required to provide patrol or enforce any provisions of this code other than those provisions applicable to private property. In 1979 the Supreme Court ruled in Delaware vs. Prouse that stopping a vehicle simply to check a driver's license violates the 4th Amendment. California doesnt care about your constitutional rights
