Trivia

When speaking about the boat, Jon calls Getraer Captain, and Getrear says that reminded him of his Navy days. Ponch reminds Getrear that he was only a Petty Officer 3rd Class. The same year that CHiPs ended (1983), Robert Pine would play Navy Lieutenant Thomas Sullivan Magnum III on Magnum, P.I.: Home from the Sea (1983). See more »

Goofs

When teaching Jon and Ponch about the weight limits for axles, Vogt tells them axles other than front axles are limited to 20,000 pounds and front axles are limited to 12,500 pounds unless it is a certain type of truck. When the second stolen trailer comes through, the scale reads a maximum of 13,800 pounds and Vogt says it is a "good 3,000 pounds over." It was only 1,300 pounds over if it was a front axle, however when he calls Ponch he tells him it was the rear axle, so it was not overweight at all. Since it was not overweight, it would not have been flagged for inspection and the subsequent plot events would not have taken place. See more »
