Escondido to Indio Route suggestions

We're going to be staying near Escondido California for a few days and then we want to swing around to Indio. Was wondering if anyone have any route recommendations. We're in a 35-foot Gasser with a toad.
We are from Southern California and frequent places in the San Jacinto mountains and elsewhere but it's been awhile since I've been on these smaller Eastern San Diego County Roads.
Any tips any places to avoid? Thanks in advance

I think 15north to 215North to 60East which will turn into the 10 in Beaumont would be easiest route and quickest route. Of course the best time to travel those routes during the week is between 1000 and 1400. Take care.

Yeah but I was thinking about going south through El Centro and up past the Salton Sea.

This route is the best IMHO. We live in Escondido and travel up to the I10 and then eastward often. We've done all the options...

Traffic especially through Temecula slows big time during rush hours.

I lived in San Diego for 35 yrs before I went full time. I-15, to I-215 to 60 to I- 10 is the best route but if you want to go to El Centro then go south on I-15 to I -8 East to El Centro and take Hwy 111 north to Indio

So 78 is not good for a motorhome?

Well, personally I would take the I 15-215-60-10 just to avoid the Alpine grade. It's doable, I've done it several times in my previous 275hp V10 rig, but it's a lot of upgrade. It's a longer route and a tough climb, hardly worth it.

I've never heard of the Alpine Grade.
We do the Grapevine, Canjo, Conejo, Chiriaco, Mammoth Mountain and 243 to Idylwild often and have no problems.
Not to mention out of state like I40 through Flagstaff and I25 NM over Raton Pass to Colorado.
Is Alpine on I8? Is it like these above?
