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.
