Perhaps they had figured out that they had really screwed up and were circling the wagons??
I know I've been ragging on this for almost three years. Like you I love my Berk and the good jobs it's done for me. I don't worry about the (maybe) 2-4 hundred lbs over on the R/A; I believe that the R/A will actually do 19500 without a whimper.
HOWEVER, there is the legal side of if it I'm ever in an accident. First thing the opposing lawyer is going to do is weigh the coach. My DW was in that business for over 25 years, so knows how shifty those guys can be to get a settlement "upped".
When I was driving semi, the FIRST thing the DOT would do (right at the scene) would be to weigh the rig. Yes, the do have portable scales. When I had my accident in my semi the local cop said that he wished we could get the scene cleared before the DOT found out about it. Like the old Irish proverb... "May you be in heaven for an hour before the devil knows you're dead"??
Luckily, we did get it cleared before the FEDS found out.
