I'm sure I'm an idiot,,but the examples in the manual don't add up. Example #1- 1,400-(2x150)=1,100 it says load capacity is 650 not 1,100. Example #2 is correct 1,400-(5x172)=540. I understand why this is confusing to people they can't do the math correct in the manual. They show 5 people in example one but, use 2 as the multiplier.
Hopefully, to put this to rest…..
Using the symbols of 5 persons, together with the weights stated in example 1….and applying some “common sense” (yep, that again) I think I have deciphered the puzzle/error. And really guys, that’s all it is. A simple error.
5 persons (as depicted with the obvious symbol of 5 ummmm people, at a weight of 150 lbs each, subtracted from the 1400 lb payload equals…..
drum rolllllll……650 lbs. Symbols tell a story, same as words. It’s incorrectly stated, but obviously so, if one just uses some common sense and context.
What I find odd and annoying, not just here but in society in general these days….is that people KNOW that an oversight or error was made, but CLING to the error as a stated fact in order to sound “smart” or be seen as correct, when all the smart/normal people around them know/realize it’s just an oversight/error!
“But yeah…just look here…look…look, see…I’m right…you can’t haul 5 lbs, look it says it right here…look, see!!!”
I look, but all I see is ignorance and lack of….wait for it….Common Sense.
Ohhhhh how I wish the Owners Manual said, “Jump off a tall bridge or your warranty will be voided”
And frankly, given the several hundred page owners manuals these days, I for one….am not surprised there are a few errors.
They are trying to give examples because owners never check the door jamb data plates they way they should. People don’t care to learn what GVWR, etc etc….
It is only a 4000 lb bullet traveling down the road…who cares about such trivial things lol.
Heck people air their tires up to the max pressure on the sidewall of their tires….never knowing the car was engineered to have “x“ amount of air pressure in the tires as part of the overall suspension of the car! Where would they find this crucial specification? Door jamb.
Sighhhh….are we still talking about this? 😅
