We are considering taking Hwy. US89 through what is called "King's Hill Scenic Byway" in early May. Being a flatlander I have little idea what could be expected both in regard to weather at this time of year or on what steepness of grades that could be encountered. Like to know before committing to that route. Would appreciate any comments and suggestions.

You'll be fine. US-89 is a decent route for your RV. The toughest part is in the King's Hill area but it's not tough at all. The grades are not that steep and it's a very scenic drive through the Lewis and Clark Nat'l Forest. I will take my 42' Bus through there probably next summer without any worries. May is not a problem in that area as far as snow goes. That you'll only run into on the smaller roads up around Glacier. Going to the Sun definitelky won't open up until at least mid June.
