You will not keep yourself out of trouble, Murphy's law, just being under sticker limits.
IMHO, best people know good vs bad habits. There are a multitude rules and laws that will get an unsafe person off the road. ALL of them are moving violations, way the heck worst than being over wieght! Which is a non moving violation.
Oh the stories some of us can tell! Lol

I was kicked off a RV Forum because a Mod Smoky Wren did not like me because I would not back down to his the sky was going to fall and I was Satin for exceeding my 14k GVWR but I was at or under both of my SAE axle ratings.

They made up some BS that I was violating the no sales rule when I said to a guy wanting to buy a new truck and RV. I said "I have the rig for you" posted a pic and went on to explain what I had just purchased and why he would like the same rig i had. It was clear I was NOT trying to sell anything and I got a long ban. Then when I was allowed to return another member mentioned wanting to sell something and I said "best not to try to sell anything on here as they may ban you for trying to sell something". Just like that I got a lifetime ban!!!

Grit don't forget about the "insurance will never pay off if you cause a wreck and are overweight" The NTSB will pick up every single can of soup and bottle of beer and weigh it all and give the info to your insurance company and it will go on your permanent record for the rest of your life![emoticon]

Well I generally pack canned beer, you know, for weight savings to stay under the neutered gvwr of my 3/4ton!

But regardless, 12V, your experience could have been much worse with ole Smokey….
I mean being called Satin, a sheer, comfortable sexy material could be a compliment! (As long as you don’t think he was making a pass at you…lol. 2 dudes shouldn’t talk about satin together. It’s like Man Rule #69, hahaha)
Now had he called you Satan, that would be offensive!!

Cheers!

To be clear he did not call me either but he left no doubt I was on his SH!T list. Hey I admit I mis spelled "SATAN" but you will have to excuse me as I went to Sedro Woolley my first 5 years of School. Ya know where if ya get D-Vorced yer still related. [emoticon]

If you promise to wear 2 masks when you post, you don't have to quarantine.

Turtle, actually I feel we, Team "IDGAF about my door sticker" are making progress in this particular department. The rvnet deputy weight cops have been quite silent (suspiciously, of course...lol) on this matter as of recent.

Baby steps I say, as long as they're forward, is a good thing! [emoticon]

I think they all ventured over to be with their own kind hob-knobbing with SmokyWren on irv2.com
