I buy and sell corporate aircraft. Once, when I was showing a Beechcraft King Air turboprop to a prospective new owner, he asked the pilot, "Can these aircraft be de-iced like the big airliners?" The pilot's answer was elegantly simple. He said, "Sure they can. But if the weather's that bad, I'm staying home."

That applies to using chains on a motor home, too.

If you plan on driving your MH during the winter months and may require tire chains then I would suggest you get some Automatic chains: Insta-Chain ; Onspot of North America ; ROTOGRIP®: RUD.

Are just a few, These are used on Buses and various heavy equipment.

But even at that, park your MH at an RV camp and enjoy the snow. Better safe than sorry.

Thank you for all the great feedback. Fortunately I managed to land safely in Pahrump without seeing any stormy weather. I wish they did make chains for RV but such is life. In stormy weather just sit it out. Thanks again all this feedback is really informative and I learned an awful lot I didn't know.

I fly four different King Airs for five different companies. Two 90s and two 200s.

And no chains. ;-)
