[QUOTE=ga traveler;2341506 I strongly disagree with two gypsies. We always pulled off when cars were building up behind us. We never had a problem getting back up to speed. [/QUOTE]

We always pull over, also, if we can do it safely. Our diesel motorhome is powerful enough that we have no problem getting back up to speed or climbing effortlessly in the first place.

I suggested it because the OP seemed concerned with his equipment. If the power is lacking it's easier on both him and his vehicle to keep on chugging for a 1/2 mile or so rather than stopping midway, getting back on the road slower than before, and again having someone barreling up behind him.

Those steep grades don't last forever on the secondary roads. If he's on interstates and I-70 has a biggie, there are enough lanes that folks can easily pass you if they want.
