Since I found out about a stupid 10k GVWR limit with a Class C license in this state and the test for the "J" endorsement is a major pain, I looked for another FW under 10k. Found and picked up this...

Thanks, with just the wife and I we travel light and rarely dry camp so don't need a lot of water. Plus I will keep as much as I can in the truck. The dealer swapped out the brand new 16" Endurance...

Well guys, since I started this thread I have since made a 400 mile one way trip to Boise, Id. and traded the Wildcat for this mint '17 Jayco 28.5RTST with a GVWR of 9950. It is actually longer...

The Jayco we are getting has a Coleman. Hopefully it is a bit simpler. I never was crazy about the Dometic in ours. The Coleman in our 2006 Tioga Class C was great, like a home unit.

We have no heat pump option that I saw with the mode switch. Our manual says that comes with "select models".

Thanks guys. I was just looking at the manual and didn't even know there was an auto setting. We rarely use it when heat is needed and only used the AC.

I went out and put it on auto, and it...

Furnace blowing cold from AC vents?

We are getting ready to trade in our 262RGX and since it's cold out, I decided to kick on the propane heater. It fired right up, and blew somewhat warm air out the heater vents at first, but it was...

Yep, that's exactly what I have been toying with. Just point to the registration that says 8600lbs (unladen). Unfortunately the GVWR sticker is right on the left side of the trailer in easy...

We are in Fallon, an hour east of Reno. We love going down to Pahrump and thought about moving there to get out of these frigid temps. Housing is very reasonable down there. But the wifes son...

The crazy thing is, you can't pull a 30ft 5th wheel if its over 10k, yet can pull a 35ft travel trailer as long as it is under 10k. The fiver is much easier than the TT to pull and a lot less behind...

Yes, 26k is combined weight, but that doesn't alter the fact you cannot tow over 10k GVWR with a class c no matter what the tow vehicle is. This is from the PDF file I posted earlier...

Thanks. I don't think it really matters what you cross the scale at, it's that information sticker on the side of the rig that has the GVWR on it.

Currently our destination is southern Alabama....

You can drive a MH up to 26k with a Class C license, anything over that requres a non-commercial CDL.

Everyone I know says not to worry about it and I probably wouldn't if we weren't moving out...

It is for anything I believe. I never heard of it either which is why I was stunned when I did. Then looked at my drivers license and in very tiny print on the back says "may tow a veh <10,000 lbs".

After owning our 262RGX for 2 1/2 years, I recently found out it is well above the GVWR limit for a class C license here in Nevada.

On the Cummins forum I saw a guy mention you need a "J"...

Why is that? They just stamp salvage on the title and hand you your plates at least here in Nevada. I imagine they may do a light check, but not much more. It is definitely something I will check...
