  1. Also, I know it can lock the two axles but is it rare for them to have a diff lock as well? To be able to drive all 8 tires at once if I called it the wrong term.
  2. I don't believe they're on here. I saw the truck on a Facebook hdt page.
  3. Sounds good, appreciate the help. Would you agree the d12 is a pretty good motor for rv service?
  4. Looking at buying an 04 volvo 780 d12 motor (465 hp / 1650 tq) with a 13 speed trans for $12,500. It has 1.1 million miles and has recently had egr, starter, boost sensor, fuel pressure regulator, and full tune up. The paint has some clear coat problems. It's titled as an Rv but still has a commercial style hitch which I would need to change. I would want to add a bed to it and want to keep the dual axles. From what I've read the d12 motor is pretty solid besides egr valves. I don't have a problem working on my equipment but don't want to jump into anything that I'll regret. I'll be pulling ab
  5. My truck is a 2006 chevy duramax so maybe not what you would think of as a commercial truck if that helps. Also, I got my commercial license just so I can tow doubles legally in ca, this isn't my profession so I don't know all the laws and regs. That's why i come here, for some knowledge.
  6. First off, I don't know that it's not legal and I'd like to learn why or why not. That's why I was asking and sounds like you don't know either nutinelse2do. Second, my truck is registered commercial and pretty sure my flatbed is as well. You need a commercial class a to have endorsements so I don't believe you can tow doubles with a non commercial license from California. Third, to double tow in California legally you don't need to have a one ton vehicle. Soooo, back to the question, what do I need to do to be legal to tow doubles in oregon? Dot #'s and everything that goes
  7. Thanks for replying Chad, especially since you have knowledge of this. What is the difference in the recreational vs commercial doubles? My truck is technically commercial (I think?) as is my rear trailer since it's over 10k gvwr. Not sure if that makes a difference. Appreciate the help.
  8. Sooooo, going back to the question that started this, does anyone have any experience towing two trailers in Oregon or have any suggestions regarding it.
  9. I have been pulled over by both DOT and CHP. I fail to see how in my chevy truck, 5th wheel camper, and flatbed I'm not covered under my cdl. How do you figure? Please explain. Or are you talking about Oregon?
  10. I'm not sure what that means, would you be able to explain further? I got a commercial license to tow doubles since that was the only way to legally do it in California. I don't believe there is any non-commercial license that can include an endorsement for doubles.
  11. Yes, it is legal in Ca. You do need a commercial license, which I have. I've been doing it for about ten years so far and never had issues with law enforcement.
  12. I'd like to go to the sand dunes in Oregon but I tow a 5th wheel and a flatbed trailer behind it with my toys. I live in CA and have the appropriate license and am the correct lengths. I've alwaya heard Oregon and Washington don't allow double towing but as I researched it found that many people do it in Oregon. Do they just hope to not get caught, get a permit, just not care? I'm looking for anyone with real life experience doing this and why it can or can't be done. Thanka for the help.

  14. Thanks for the responses. I do have the temp probe which is nice when it's freezing out. So maybe it charges at 14.5 volts until the battery is full then it goes in to float mode? That sound correct? Appreciate the help
