Not sure if this is the section to put this in. If not please have a moderator move it.
I'll try to keep this as short as I can. Purchased our trailer new about a month ago now. It was a couple weeks before I could get it home.
Once it was here I went a got my insurance then a few days later went to get the plates. I was then informed I had to have my trailer inspected by the state fire marshal before I could tag it. I won't go into how stupid I thought that was, but after looking around a few rv sites it seemed to be true.
Fine. I call and set up an appointment and burn a days vacation to be home. At least he came to me! The inspection was a joke. He didn't even light the stove. He pushed the test button on the smoke alarm, noted there was a fire extinguisher, and checked to see that the propane bottle was turned off and the connection was tight. By hand. Sixty bucks later I have another sticker on the side of the trailer and a piece of paper.
With this in hand I go back to the courthouse to get the plates. Which I finally did get. But the person that waited on me today was someone different. And she asked who told me to get it inspected to which I replied
it was someone here. Matter of fact it was whoever resides in that empty seat across from you. She then proceeded to tell me that I did not need that inspection. They just changed that this year to only used trailer from out of state, not new ones.
I'm mad as h**l but I'm sure the fight to try and get that sixty bucks back won't be worth it.
So to all you out there, if you live in Kentucky and purchase a new travel trailer out of state, BEWARE! If they tell you to get a fire marshal inspection ask to speak to someone else.
