PJ, Sounds like helluva tricky passage to navigate in a best case scenario.

Reading all the precautions got me wondering, so I'll ask. With the advent of so many trucks now using automatic transmissions how does that work when trying to use the tranny as a brake?

I know cars basically freewheel with an auto when letting off the gas, hell, the fuel injectors even shut down when coasting, so I wonder what happens in a big truck with an auto?

If ya wanna use trannies as a brake, that's still legal, but just until their lawyers show up.

Compensation's kinda a moot point though when all we're talkin about is a slick spot in the road (*facepalm*)

I've run up and down that hill more times than I can remember.. 99.9% of those trips were in a truck with a manual transmission.
The few times that I've run it with an automatic transmission were with fairly light loads.. just flipped the Jake brakes on High, set the cruise control for about 45mph and let her roll...
This vidya is what the majority of my trips looked like, long nose Peterbilt, complete with bugler hood ornament thumbs
