Default Pulling a gooseneck

I have a cummins with a utility box on it. And all these people are coming into the auto parts store telling me i will get a ticket if i pull a gooseneck with it. Has anyone heard this? I've looked around a little and can't find anything against it.

Must be auto zone. The people at the walmarts told me its illegal not to pull a trailer with a cummins. Just be careful if you put one of those "C's" in the back window. It will give it so much torque it will reverse the earths rotation. Oh and you have to blow smoke at every intersection or dot will mess with you.

You could go in auto zone and ask for a can of white spray paint and the first words out of there mouth are "does the vehicle have AC?"

3/4 ton? 1 ton? Bigger? What trailer? What axels? What is total weight? Maybe it is illegal.
