Do you carry Med. Cert. in RV thats required by the Feds?
 
I just learned that if you drive a vehicle thats designed or used as a living quarters and has a gross weight of over 10,001lbs. you are required to carry a Medical Examiners Cert. This is a FEDERAL reg. for Second Division Vehicles and the living quarters definition is considered a Second Division Vehicle. The required forms do not come from the SEC. of STATE in Il. were I live. You need to get forms from designated organizationsmost of which have to dowith Truckers. Any thoughts or comments re: this info???

I don't recall this issue being raised before.

It sounds like a CDL type requirement that would not be applicable to RVs in personal use.

Can you provide a link to this requirement?

Never heard of this before. I would also be interested in a link to the site.

I carry the Med Card but it's only because I'm required to have it to drive my trucks.

This requirement is printed in the Illnois Sec. of State Non-CDL Rules of the road hand book under Federal Regulations for Second Division Vehicles. As defined, if a vechile is designed or used for living quarters and has a gross weight of 10,001lbs or more the operator is required to carry a Medical Examiners Cert. Doesn't that sound like MH RVers are included??

Do you have a link or a better/actual name to this so as to be able to read all that is pertaining to it?

Here is an excerpt from the manual:


Federal Regulations for Second Division Vehicles

A second division vehicle is:
7 designed to carry more than 10 persons;
7 designed or used for living quarters;
7 designed for pulling or carrying freight or cargo;
7 a first division vehicle remodeled for use as a second division vehicle; or
7 a first division vehicle used and registered as a school bus.
Operators of a second division vehicle with a gross motor vehicle weight of 10,001 pounds or more are required to carry a Medical Examiner's Certificate with them at all times while operating the vehicle. In addition, drivers are required to maintain a file containing a written test verification, road test verification and other records.

The complete manual can be found here. Just click on Rules of the Road for Non-CDL Vehicles

I'll bet it's been ruled that this doesn't apply to RVs in personal use.

As a business all of my employees must have a medical card if they are driving a vehicle with a GVW of over 10,000#. A CDL is not required until you are over 26,000#.
I do not believe a medical card is required as a private coach.

I've never heard of this medical provision being applied to RVs. Superstar or NASCAR driver tour buses where the driver is being compensated - yeah, I can see that.

I've got to ask, what is a Medical Examiners Certificate?

Never mind. I goggled it. Why in the heck don't they call it a physicians report? I thought I was qualifying to perform autopsies.
