No it doesn't. Don't be dumb.

The trailer rating is for the axles and this will work as long as you are under the GCVW for the truck and under the axle rating or the truck.
That's about equally as dumb. You can't leagally haul a 10 machine on a 9990 rated trailer. You are 10 overweight without even taking the tare into account.

Your allowed whatever you want to put on without going over the tow vehicle rear axle rating.

That interpretation is incorrect. It's confusing.

Remember that reading is fundamental everyone.

Did you know that talking on a cell phone while driving a DOT registered vehicle is a $3000 personal fine and a $9000 company fine?

Yeah i'd like to see him work just one day in our climate. That pu$$y of a man wouldnt make it past 9 o'clock.

I am still in shock over that comment He(capitalized for deity) made. I cant think of a worse insult to a business owner.

Negetive...He waved me into parking lot while I was on phone with our book keeper and started naming violations. The phone was the first. Our truck is simply an Isuzu NPR. Have to have medical card and yearly inspections.
