New feature @ cat scales - weighmytruck.com

While CAT scales were designed for large trucks, they come in handy for the rv's also...

They just set up a new feature @ weighmytruck.com where you don't have to go in to get your scale ticket, they will email it to you if you sign up...

One caveat I noticed, it will NOT be a certified scale ticket in case you need that !

but convenient for quick verification of your weights and its free
(well, after you pay the $10 for the weigh!)

Nice find! Was planning on weighing everything this weekend. Will give this a try and see how it works.

As for a certified scale ticket, not concerned about that at all. So long as I know that's all that matters.

That's a great service. However, if you are accustomed to doing a double weigh for determining pin weight, you'll still need to contact the weighmaster at the desk.

You're not one of those little fellers, are you?

One time, I was standing on my side steps reaching up to make the call and slipped off the step. Rather embarrassing.

I typically just weigh the truck once with a full tank of fuel and never do it again. Not too worried about minor differences in weight over time. I figure there's about 100 lb variance anyways depending on how things are loaded.

So now that I've registered I can't find an app for the iPhone/iPad. Anyone else see one?

I guess I'm missing something here, if you have to go in to pay for the scale, what are you gaining with this app? At the CAT scales at Pilot I go to, I drive on scale, get weighed, go inside pay 10 bucks and get ticket. What am I missing. Just asking.

My take on it is:
1) It's really for the truckers that have to weigh regularly,

2) but we rv's can use it and it just saves you having to find a place to park and go in...
they just email the ticket to you...
(guess you register so you can give them a credit card ?)

if you are going back for a reweigh, you just give them the number from the email copy...

AA, I keep an umbrella on the rear floorboard that I reach the button with

I've used a telescoping snow brush before

oh wait, you may not know that term: a snow brush is a long handled brush on one end with a scraper on the other, commonly worn with gloves and a heavy coat and hat. The brush is used to push 2 feet of SNOW off of the windshield to get to the 3 inches of ICE underneath I'm not sure you guys even have heaters down there do you?
