Weight station Pull Overs

Is it mandatory to pull in weigh stations as a RV? I seen several weight stations that say pull in if lights are on but dont know if a Class A has to

No.

Private rig, not for hire, not under DOT authority.

Another question, same vein. IF I did pull in just to get weighed for my own interest... would they weigh me?

Would you be willing to give them a blank, signed check? Don't ask for it. If they check your rig, they will find something wrong. Go to a truck stop and use the scales.

I would not advise that idea.

Likely you would invite more problems than you would like to have.

Many handle serous truck traffic and have little time for non pros.

If you need a weight go to a public CAT scale or use a state scale when they are closed if state law allows (most do not care).

Maryland law requires all vehicles over the posted weight to stop. That being said, I always get the green light before hitting the scales.

I didn't plan on it, but was curious. Now you have me more curious...

Why "WILL" they find something wrong? 99+% of the trucks that go through have no problems and THEY ARE being checked for legality. If I do get weighed, the DOT guy has no other authority to check my rig, or search it etc. You sound a little paranoid.....

I had a Freightliner with a 14ft RV Cab and 53 foot double decker Featherlite trailer that I used to haul our race cars from shop to track and back. While I was "not for hire" per se', I got stopped in NC and Ohio by troopers who insisted I had to go through the scales. (nicely enough). So I did. Without a DOT number etc, the scale guys told the troopers they were crazy and they just passed me through both times.. Again nice enough.. So, I just wonder why you think they are going to get me for something. I am figuring they get a puzzled look and weigh me or... tell me to get the hell off their scales...

I think now that I am going to try it. I will let you know.
