Agreed!

I keep twelve sets of jockey shorts and twelve pairs of new white cotton socks in the RV trailer at all times. These are just for traveling.

Rarely need to do laundry on the road.

Can't have too much of this stuff......

When towing in the snow, double up on the undershorts. 😖

Normally it's not bad towing in the winter, I've been back and forth with either tools or pulling the Prowler and I've only had issues twice in all my years of traveling and both of those were on the same section of I 80 between between Cheyenne and Laramie. Both times were pulling my tool trailer. If you stay on the interstates it's normally better but like I previously said sometimes the weather will get you. Just be sure and give yourself extra time and be ready to slow down and definitely give yourself extra following distance. When I was working in Canada the weather didn't stop them.

Just be advised that sometimes they close the highways or state DOT can require extra chains when towing. Also many RV parks in the north shut down in winter time or you may need a heated hose for fresh water.

Find out if any of the States use brine. If so and you are on the highway when there is snow / ice in the forecast (or even after the storm passed), plan on giving the truck and trailer a monsoon type soaking from underneath to limit the corrosion that the stuff does.

Tell-tale that there is brine on the road prior to a storm is that it looks like several white chalk lines sprayed across the lane.

Just read where Vermont passed a law that barred its highway crews from using brine.
