My RM7710 alerts me to low clearances, but I still check the route with a truckers atlas.

Additional caution

Having formerly driven over the road trucks hauling oversized loads occasionally even the signs on overpasses can be incorrect, example resurfaced the roadway and not updating the sign. This can be serious

The Colorado info is incorrect. All interstate hiway have a min HT of 13.6 including Colorado. Been trucking for 35 yrs and that is the truth
Get a Trucker Atlas available in any Truck Stop. It will have a low bridge section for every state trucks are allowed on. Invaluable !

I agree with Jackknife. Get a truckers atlas. We are 13'4" and have no problems so far. We do keep a close eye on tree branches on side roads and in campgrounds. I carry a pole saw for those issues. There is a railroad overpass going into East Glacier Montana. It is arched and says it is 13' tall. I put an extension on my pole saw at 13'6" and it cleared the center. We drove through with lots of clearance. So, Watch for branches, Have a way to measure, Keep to the middle of an arched overpass, Pay your insurance.

Just remember to look up I'm 13' 4". Not all fueling/gas stations are that high, usually they are marked in the center of the overhead of the pumps.
Be carful and safe travels

I like others have over 25 years of professional truck driving and never had a height problem. I even took a 13.6 trailer under a 12.6 bridge on Long Island, I just followed another truck. New York measures their bridges crazy I guess. Just be aware of where you are at.
