Eisenhower Tunnel height

Planning a trip west with our 2013 Rockwood 8282WS 5th wheel, and would be going through Eisenhower tunnel. Our Rockwood measures 13',( height ) the tunnel info from the DOT state 16' but the signage drops it down to 13'11". Anyone travel that way had any issue?

We went through it in 2008 with our Wildcat fifth wheel. I believe the height is 13 feet 10 inches. You'll be fine with your Rockwood. Sensors will sound a warning if a rig too tall is approaching the tunnel and will be stopped.

First time I have ever heard of height sensors - do the police stop you if you are too tall or what ?

A horn will blast, warning lights directing you to pull over.

Interesting - never knew this before. So do they have a turn around if you are too tall or what. ?
