Stopped at the TA in Tennessee today on I-81 exit 36. When I entered the stall in the men's restroom I was greeted by this sign above the toilet. This gives a whole new meaning to trying to balance your load. I'm not sure if they were writing citations for over weight loads or if maybe they were allowing you to pay a fee and get a special permit if you exceeded the limit. I just tried to hold everything real steady like and not lean to one side or the other - I wasn't over weight, but I sure didn't want to have some one coming in there wanting to do a level 3 inspection on me just because I had leaned a little too far to the left while I was trying to finish up the paperwork!

The sign doesn't say this, but I suppose you should move your tandems to the rear before backing into the dock?

Tandems:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

Don't laugh, that is his land dingy!

Incase the truck breaks down in the middle of nowhere, he can sit in there in the AC and wait for the repair guy to get there.
