    Hello

    There is an alarm going off when the shift axel is down, it activates when pass 5 miles. I took it the mechanic and they can’t tell me was going. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Are you heavy enough to need the drop axle down?

    Right now I’m hauling 5600 pounds. But the alarm also goes off when I bobtail, with axel down.

    Total is 40900, per cat-scale. While in the mechanic I bobtail, trying to figure out why the alarm was going on, and it seems to be related to the axel. When I have the axel up there is no alarm.

    So your gross weight is 40,900. Is it a 6 axle truck/trailer?

    If I'm understanding this correctly, are you saying you don't know how many axles are under your truck and trailer?
