I have to admit that experiencing some 30 mile per hour winds and higher cross wind gusts is terrifying. I do not head out any more before I check the wind speed ahead on the road - but even this is not foolproof as the winds are usually much lower in cities and towns which is where my weather seems to measure. I don't know anything about chassis work. I was wondering if you took your FR3 into a truck repair shop for the Roadmaster steering controls and front and back sumo stablizers, etc. or did the RV dealer do the work. Which would recommend?

We are headed from Oregon to Montana and the Canadian Rockies on a very similar route in about 10 days. Thanks for the heads up on I-90, might have to find an alternative!

Heck of a report. Sounds like you had some bad times. BUT.......if you got TWO vasectomies, then it sounds like at one point in your life you were the luckiest person on Earth! LOL

A suggestion on the I-Phone holder.
I have a cover on mine and like Velcro.
I put a strip of the rough / hooks part of Velcro on the top left corner of the dash. The smooth part on the back of the phone.
It lets me put the phone in reach and in view. I use the maps app to get around. So far, it has not got me too far off.
I also use it that way with speaker setup if I have to talk while driving.
