    Well i have had problems at the pumps with or with out the trailer, the same trouble that is listed on all of the posts. Well i found a quick fix, it works great here, but were you are at it might not. Here it is: one time i just got cursed out at the pump was back on the road thinking about how that guy was way out of line, when i looked up and found my answer , in the back of a pickup truck in front of me was a gun rack with a gun in it ( this is normal were i live Arkansas) so i made me a gun rack and bough a red rider bb gun that looks like a real rifel, at a yard sale cheep and have it all mounted in the back of my jeep. it works all of the time here. I never had any one do anything but smile and get out of the way when they see me now. :confused: It makes you wonder if country boyz got it all figured out all ready ???????? :dizzy: :dizzy: :dizzy:

    A friend of mine had BB rifles in his trunk and the police took them all and destroyed them. He wasn't using them, he was just pulled over for a traffic violation and they searched him.

    Your allowed to transport a gun (never call it a weapon in front of a police officer unless you have permit to carry), at least in ohio you can. Just can't have the ammo with it. I'd be pretty ragged if i got pulled over while going to hunt and they destroyed my 500 dollar shotgun :(

    Here in Indiana I am able to get a concealed carry permit to carry a pistol. One night on my way home I stopped at a gas station to get some coffee and noticed a questionable fellow approaching my truck from a distance. I was unsure of his intent at the time, but when I stepped out of the truck and allowed my .45 colt to show he did a 180 and forgot about his plan! I don't flaunt it. But it does make a difference when they see the ace your holding!

    I rarely bring my trailers through gas stations, I put the tanks in the back of a pickup to fill. Even still, it takes a while to fill the trucks, especially the dump that requires you to lift the bed to reach the fill.

    I am a big customer at the local station, so they never have a problem when I take awhile at the pump. I have also gotten to know the owner and most of the regular employees there. Always helps.
