You can also take the 10 to the 210 to the 215 to the 15. Avoids the cluster at the 10/215. Less car traffic, but enough truck traffic to keep your speed constant.

I've never driven the 247 in a MH. We did the 5 to 58, 58 to Barstow and 40 to AZ. All good, drivable roads, except for the 5. The 62 to the 10 is good with a mix of traffic. The 95 is rough.

It's not a tire pressure symbol. Those have tread on the bottom and are open at the top, just like a cross section of an unmounted tire would be. Does the owners manual have anything in it?
