Keith Bennett, Denver RV Travel writer says — “Mountain driving requires a high level of concentration and a respect for the terrain.”
He continues: “Speed and Curves mean – Slow to a safe speed before entering a curve. Braking in a curve is dangerous because it is easier to lock the wheels and cause a skid. Don’t ever exceed the posted speed limit for the curve. Since the posted speed limit is designed for a small vehicle, your speed should be 5-10 mph below what is posted. Be in a gear that will allow slight acceleration through the curve. This will help maintain control. When entering a curve while going downhill, allow gravity to provide the slight acceleration.”
