I have been doing some research online, and came across this app/website
http://www.lowclearances.com
Link
Has anyone used it?
I’m thinking it might be a good solution, to add it to my iPhone and google maps on my laptop.

The GPS that came in our Tiffin has a program that allows you to input the height, width and length. I keep that on which my wife navigates with WAZE.

Rand Mc Nally GPS in my unit has entries for height length and width. Also includes with or without propane tank. Don't know if they're available stand-alone. Came with it.

Been there, done that. Ryder box truck, I found an 11.5 bridge with a 12' truck at 40mph.
Cleaned it, left the fiberglass top of the truck in the street behind me. Cop told me to pick up the top and get out of there. Said I didn't hurt the bridge, and I was going to have enough trouble with Ryder. He was right! One of those lessons that stay with you. Like peeing on an electric fence..........
