Re: brake & turn lights

Not that it really matters, I doubt that the question will ever come up unless one of those newbee inspectors with the crewcut and lots of guns want's to show someone how much power he has.

This could actually be more of a problem. Usually these guys say "If a light fixture is there it has to work"

I had one of those guys stop me and he found so many things "wrong" with the truck I'm surprised he didn't arrest me. Original reason for stopping me? "Your license plate is bent" He then proceeded to find things like VIN number plate on trailer has serial number not VIN. ???????? I just be polite and say "Yes sir, whatever you say sir" and go merrily on my way. I'd like to have been there when he explained that one to his commander.

Re: brake & turn lights

I say wire them up and see what happens? Would it be taking a risk sure....if they stop and pull you over for it say... wow I didnt know that. Im glad you let me know and ill take care of that right now and hop out with a screw driver and remove the bulb. All the time stroking the cops ego and bowing down to the all mighty know it all cop. To answer the question.... yes I do not like cops at all.

Do I think it should matter if you do this...no. I think if anything it would be helpful but common sense has kept me in trouble all my life.

I say roll the dice and do it but be willing to accept the consequences if you tangle an ego driven rooster in law enforcement?

Re: brake & turn lights

I don't think most cops will look twice at a skoolie. We drove 1700+ miles thru several states, parking at night in parking lots, without tags, flasher lights in place but covers removed. Not one stop, not even looked at twice.
