My experience with a gasser was: 1- very loud going up grades and really slow speed as it climbs 2 - no engine brake so have to be depend on transmission and brakes entire decent.... Take it slow and pull over and let everything cool down at top and bottom of climb....

Not sure which gasser folks are using but with the Ford V10s most will have a Haul/Tow option. Heading down a steep grade - Monteagle is a little tense the first time - simply follow the instruction given by the former instructor about stabs. The tranny in Haul/Tow will brake considerably. I've driven thousands of miles with heavy equipment on flatbeds and now several thousand with a gasser RV. No problems - just pay attention and let your vehicle help.

Maybe I have different rear gears but I was able to maintain and easy 45 mph without worrying about the engine over revving.

Oh yeah - took my DW a bit to gain the confidence to ride down these but now is sure we are good to go.
