If I can't wear shorts because of the weather, we are to far North. The only time caught in snow this June in Yellowstone. 86 degrees two days before. 70's the day after, I was told this happens all the time. Not the temps being that high. This year the snow pack came late.
I was happy the long pants still fit.

Our HR Vacationer has the 22.5 tires, which we hang the camlock link chains on when that time comes. As we spend the winter weekends snowmobiling in the Washington Cascades, the passes at times require chains to make that journey. I have in the past run the cable chains, but found they didn't wear well for us. Had one set wrap around between the two tires/wheels, which turned out to be the last set of cables I bought for the rig.

Which ever direction you go, make sure they are tight and travel moderately slow on your travels. Higher speeds can do some damage if your chains are loose or ends are wildly swinging as you drive.

I found installation time for both relatively short, and don't forget your rubber chain tighteners to keep them snug against your tires.

What I have done to make the chain installation easy and to make sure the chains are tight, entails driving over a 2x10 (or whatever) under the inside rear dual. Then the chains can be easily put on the outside tires and tightened.
