Performance in Mountains

by Glenn
(Spring Grove, IL)

Traveling to Estes Park, Colorado (elevation 7000 feet). Route 36 has steep grades and switchbacks. I had to downshift to 2nd gear and with it floored I had a hard time maintaining 30 mph.

On less steep grades - no problem. When it was floored, I could only get 3000 rpm and down shifting to first gear still didn't get rpms or speed up.

Anyone have similar problems? My rig is a 2008 Fleetwood Icon 25' with 38K miles.
