Oh great, I was afraid of that. It's just pretty foreign. Glad to hear I"m not alone. I guess we feel like an 18 wheeler would feel trying to check into a campground, ha.

Not me. I figure my $10+ is the same monies as the truckers. I drop my trailer in the parking area, so I spend minimum time on the scales.

Before learning about the CAT scales (about 20 mi away), I used the local quarry (~1 mile away) to weigh my rig. I would go in and talk to the scale operator to get the OK, wait until there were no dump trucks approaching the scales, and go across the single section scales in increments to record the weights. Front truck axle, both axles, total weight, and then just the trailer axles. I would then drop off the trailer at home, and go back across with just the truck. There was a digital readout at the scales where I could record all of the information.

I agree but I just don't want to hold up somebody who's trying to make a living.

my 2 bits as a cdl driver.. Sundays are best as fewer loads originate and are needing scaled. If a 18 whlr driver seems impatient, he has had too much coffee and can chill..

Thanks, I've had very good luck over the years with drivers. I've spent many nights along side them in rest areas and felt very comfortable. Maybe it's false security but they've always been very friendly.
