I-70, Colorado - Route between Denver, CO and Utah on I-70. Westbound is steep climb but OK. Eastbound - avoid I-70 since the downgrade will definitely cause overheating the brakes and tax your engine using the engine brake. I found i couldn't go slow enough that the engine brake held my coach hence had to also use my vehicle brakes. When i was finally able to pull over my brakes was smoking. Consider using I-80 or I-40.
