Emission standards are one thing, but this is government harassment to push their electric vehicle agenda. Unfortunately the CA "progesssive" sickness is spreading throughout the country on many fronts.

4 times a year for an RV. Really? It matters not that it's a five minute or 50 minute inspection, Im sure you guys will be charged an arm and a leg, and every three months for an RV is noting more than pure harassment as PButler says.


I'm sure at some point, they will have the OBD tied into your cell phone and it will send a continuous stream of data. Of course, that will give them access to all kinds of data to use against you.

I'm sure at least some folks in northern Calicrazy store their rigs for the winter...so will they have to pull them out of storage burn 5-10 gallons of fuel to get them to a test station, so they can be tested to stay current?

You know that there is an old sled dog saying…. “If you’re not the lead dog, the view never changes”.

How’s the view back there [emoticon]

Pretty simple for most of the country just don’t spend your money in CA and just bypass the state. I know I will be doing that.

It seems the goal is to make having a motorhome, especially an older one, as big of a pain in the arse as possible instead of outright banning them, with the hope you give up. You can bet the day is coming for outright bans, and its coming for what could be considered a medium or heavy duty pickup truck someday also. No one needs any of these fuel guzzling heavy vehicles. They'll dictate what you own/drive because they know better.

In reading further into it it seems to be only for diesels.

It only affects motorhomes that have a GVWR of over 14,000lbs.


Which is 100% of class A's, and every class C over @ 24'.


Gee whiz, I'll have to cut 4 feet 5 inches off my class c which fully loaded comes in at 13,750 lbs. I had at that time 7 group 29 batteries.

All tanks were full--and the unit was ordered with two fresh water tanks.

Actual weight will not matter. Plated GVWR will be in the requirements.
