    C788D64B-715E-4CA2-A0F1-28D99926EDD1.jpeg Pin is on the 10th hole. How do we fix this to run legally? What’s anyone strategy? Had to roll early mornin’ to the Nevada border while them DOT dudes still sleeping.

    Looks perfect to me.
    Or is it the trailer pin to tandem wheel base that's the issue?
    If so, I've fixed it by hopping in the back and moved a few cases of product up to the front of the trailer.

    As a general rule 6th hole is safe, and each hole is 250-400lbs you could have potentially been able to move forward 4 holes.

    yeah, trailer pin to tandem wheel base distance posed a problem when you’re in California. Trailer had already sealed, only way to hop in the back is to take it back to the shipper and reposition and re seal
     
    uncleal13 Thanks this.

    im more concerned of the distance between kingpin and center of rear axle assembly on trailer. Was told that in Ca, I can only go as far back on the 6th hole
     
    TravR1 Thanks this.

    Do you know how to measure your trailer to find the right hole. Some trailers have a 40' marker with an arrow. Does your trailer have that on it?
