    So what letter signifies the air brake endorsement?

    I'm pretty sure I answered this question, just like the other ones. In the manual it refers to it as an endorsement. Would prefer me to draw you a diagram in crayon?

    Would you?

    BTW, you did state 2 drive axles, my mistake. Then again, I've never seen an RV with 2 drive axles.

    I am confused, because in one post you state it is an endorsement then you state it is a restriction. It's one or the other. If it's an endorsement, it needs a letter.

    Take a look at page 6 of Maine's manual. It shows 6 endorsements, none of which have anything to do with air brakes.

    Or air suspension for that other guy. Still laughing about that one.

    I apologize for working in wealthy communities where people like to show off their money with large RV's. Read the beginning of section 5 where it refers to it as an endorsement. If I knew how, I would scan the page and show you the wording.

    So why does the amonut of drive axles on a RV matter aynway?

    Still trying to figure out how you could get an X endorsement on a non CMV.

    Those RVs are actually single screw with a tag axle. We have at least one a week in the shop, never seen a twin screw RV.

    You are probably right about the second axle being a fixed tag. Again the point I was trying to make is whether or not the vehicle is used for intrastate or interstate commerce it still exceeds weight restrictions. I know the reasoning behind it, because no one would buy those expensive RV's and fifth wheel campers if they needed a CDL. @ Duffster, there are two exceptions to needing an endorsement without a CDL. If the vehicle hauls hazerdous material. Also the Z passenger endorsement for bus drivers.

    That is just idiotic. You can't get a hazmat endorsement WITHOUT a CDL. :hammerhead: Pretty much the same for the P endorsement too.

    What endorsement do I need for my air ride seat? How aboot my air ride cab?

    Or are they covered under a combined endorsement?

    What is a Z endorsement? I have both passenger and school bus and neither one of them is a Z .

    Maybe its a non CDL endorsement.
