It is VITAL INFORMATION FOR ANYONE DRIVING A LARGE OR HEAVY VEHICLE.
Travel with safety from knowledge In an attempt to make driving a little safer for truckers and RV’ers. R&R Publishing Inc. has been collecting and publishing information about passes and steep grades since 1993. The Mountain Directory eBooks give the locations and descriptions of over 700 passes and steep grades in 22 states.
The 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, 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 and information about navigating through the Mountain Grades and Terrain.

MOUNTAIN DIRECTORY eBook IS GREAT TO HAVE.
Miller designed his two directories for RV as well as truck drivers because, he says, ‘RV drivers would face the same problems as truckers because of the weight of their vehicles and braking systems that may not be designed to deal with the extreme conditions encountered during mountain descents.’ Since most road atlases do not include this specific data, many motor homers will find one or both of these books useful in taking the surprises out of driving in the mountains.
