    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    No, No, No

    "I do think someone passing on the right at 80MPH is a nut job-- if they want to go 80 at least pass on the left."

    Band-Aids and Saying Good-Bye to an Old Friend

    First, the people you are forcing to pass you on the right are not 'nut jobs'. They are simply trying to make the best of the no-win situation you have placed them in by insisting on traveling at...

    The Original Poster (OP) said his vehicle's speed dropped to as low as 25 mph on the shallowest of grades. On an Interstate, with 70 mph speed limits being common, that's a 45 mph difference. Normal...

    The Cold Hard Truth

    There's no sugar coating this. You have several significant problems:

    1) You've got a 55 year-old under-powered motor home
