Sounds a lot like the route we'll be taking from Lancaster to Maine, coming up in June.

There always is a way that they get their money. I suspect that if you are in "violation" you simply get a special bill!

I have been researching this topic for about a year. I will be on a 2 month trip from AZ to many states on the east coast this summer. I haven't picked out which state to get one from either. The one thing I would like to add to this discussion is the rumor/fact that on the west coast the FasTrak is supposed to be included soon. Last I heard was it is supposed to be in effect this year. We go to CA a lot and that would help me a lot.

It would be a bonus if ALL the states got their act together and had one system for their tolling. Washington has a thing called Good to Go but it's only used around the Seattle area.

I've traveled through the Delmarva, PA., NY, North and South Carolina and have never had a strange or exuberant charge on my EZ Pass acct. Been a EZP customer for a very long time. The scanners above the lanes know exactly what to charge. It counts axles. I got a statement and it called for a charge for 4 axles...spot on.

Yes. Your state might not have electronic reciprocity. But mine does. All these states in the East are kind of close together.

But I am still waiting for the bill for my Toronto parking ticket. I saw the meter maid and was unable to cross the highway for five minutes before she issued the ticket due to traffic that would not stop. So that ticket is still outstanding after some 10 years.

NY EZ Pass

I therefore have two transponders, one for the TV alone, the second for the TV/TT combo - just have to remember to switch them out between trips
I have a NY EZ Pass - and it's linked to the vehicle. I have one for the RV, and one for the TOAD. When towing, I pay both, as that's the axle thing. That way, I just leave the transponders in the vehicles all the time.

My Transponder has been in 3 different TV since 2000. I have hauled Popups, Cargo Trailers, a Boat (w/single Axle), and now 2 larger TTs. I have headed West to Colorado 2 times (both times on Rt.80) and multiple trips to MD,VA, NC, SC & FL. Also Trips north. EZPass always worked with & without a trailer. I just picked up a new FW and used the PA turnpike twice and no issues. I guess I'm in technical violation by not notifying the state of every change, BUT each State has always gotten their correct toll.
I've done the same. I even take the transponder with me in Rental cars. Never an issue with plates. When the gate opens its been read and is already debiting my account.

Better yet my EZ Pass is from NY because OH used to charge a monthly fee!

Best advise is to call a center to see what you need. The last thing you want is fine for not having the proper type transponder for your MH. Fines can be expensive and offset all the savings you achieved by having the EZP in the first place. You do get discounts for off peak times and using the EZP.

I have 2 transponders for NYS. One is for my TV just as is, the other is for my 5'er combo which in NYS you get a discount vs a TT combo regardless of axles.

I only have to keep a minimum of $25.00 on the account for all vehicles. When it gets below $10.00 they draw on my CC to replenish. When we hit the road that thing is always going off due to some of the major tolls in the NE area. I average about $100.00 and if cash would be about 25% more. They tried to institute a $1.00 per month rental fee and that got thrown out.

There are less and less cash lanes now on the EC as a result of EZP and interstate usage of EZP from Virginia north and out to OH. In the summer those lines can get very long.

There are also EZ passes sold on the NYS Thruway for instant use, but again the MH might be special due to weight.

The further north you cross the Hudson the cheaper it is as well.
