Yosemite to Nashville TN via northern route

Any comments or suggestions for the following trip in mid July from near Yosemite to Nashville, TN. I am especially interested in alternate routes. Many of the cities were selected because they were within a days drive and they had an RV park for the night. I would like to avoid tolls when feasible. This may be difficult around Chicago.

A lot of the stops are just overnight because time ran out. Trying to stay around 6 hours per day. Willing to drive 8 hours per day sometimes when finding an RV park is difficult.

I may need to extend some intended overnight stops into two nights in order to tour the area.

This is about a 21 day trip. We are driving a 24 foot class C Forest River Solera towing a Jeep Wrangler.

The 21 days is rigid. Have to be in Nashville by a specific date. Can cut out some stops if necessary.

This is kinda long so anyone willing to help me should probably just focus on any section that the are familiar with.

This is my first out of California trip in any RV. Trip planning for something like this is not as straight forward as my wife thought.

Thanks for any amount of time you are willing to spend looking at this.
