RV driving is a lot of fun. When your on the road long enough you are bound to come onto steep grades. Up and down in mountain like areas. You need to get advice from someone who has been there. Learn RV driving from the experienced.
Introducing Mountain Directory Ebooks!
In an attempt to make mountain RV Driving a little safer for Truckers and RV’ers, R&R Publishing Inc. has been collecting and publishing information about mountain passes and steep grades since 1993.
- 700 Mountain passes and steep grade locations in 22 States
- Color relief maps
- Change in elevation on your planned route
- How many lanes and where are escape ramps
- Recommendations on how to choose and the best time to take on a steep grade
The Mountain Directory ebooks tell you where the steep grades are, how long they are, how steep (%) they are, whether the road is two lane, three lane, or four lane. Also if there are escape ramps, switchbacks, sharp curves, speed limits, etc. With this information, one can know ahead of time what a pass is like and make an informed decision about whether to go over or around.
If you decide to go over, perhaps the cool morning hours would ease the strain on the engine and transmission during the climb. Unhooking the towed vehicle would make the climb and the descent easier. Knowing what lies ahead is half the battle.
Travel with safety – safety from knowledge and information about navigating through the Mountain Grades and Terrain.
