winter road trip

I am having to make a road trip from Houston to Seattle in the first part of December. Does anyone know what are the chain requirements for a two axle fifth wheel? I have chains for the 4 wheel truck already. I am planning to go through Albuquerque, Salt Lake and Boise.

If in CA and if Chains are required, then just one axle will require a set. The Siskiuses (SP) (I-5 into OR) would be the biggest risk. Your route might be better than the I-5 route.

Go I -5 Take 10 if you want to miss La take10 to the 45 mm in Az there will be 2 truck stops there one on each side . Take the exit go toward Vicksburg. Take hwy 72 towards Parker cross river turn Lt on 62 go to 95 turn rt- N There will be a Ca bug check station there. Take that to l 40 go west to Barstow take hwy 58- W to Bakersfield then 99 N to 46 west to 5 N to Seattle. Tehachapi is a pull and it snows there at times 4000 ft it also snows on the Grapevine if you take 10 to 5 much more traffic. The route l gave you l have traveled many times to Or and Wa when l was trucking . It is a great way to go to avoid all the La traffic and Grapevine traffic up l-5 All good much less traveled rds. Happy trails.

It is shorter and much less mtns . Going your way you have to cross many more passes and much higher elevations .
I have had to go that way when loading out of Alb. Believe me if l was driving my. Truck and was going from Houston to Seattle l would go the way l mentioned.3,500,000 miles 35 yrs of truckin is behind me. Good luck!

Thank you jackife. I will try that. Will check the mileage. Your experience and willingness to share is very much appreciated.

This is early December. But I guess storms happen in the higher elevations.
