Have to go to Jackson Hole Wy. I was going to take Rte 22 through the Teton Pass but people warned me about the 10% grade. Will it be a problem pulling a 5th with a gas pickup?
I fear burning out the brakes Etc. I burned the brakes coming out of Los Angeles on a long 7%.
After redoing the rotors and pads and changing the brake fluid, the mechanic said to use your lower gears and tap the brakes lightly. Just don't relish the idea of no brakes coming down a mountain pass. Next truck will be a diesel with compression braking.

Generally speaking, if you have a major question about it, then err on the side of safety. I have been to Jackson Hole, but left the Class A in Yellowstone and went in the toad. Going RVing is supposed to be fun and white knuckle driving can sure put a damper on it. We avoid it with a passion.
