I drove a class A motor home down the first year the road was paved. At that time all the bridges over the streams were one lane. The truckers would blink their lights at you and if they blinked first, they had the right of way. You had to slow down even if you got there first. We drove to La Paz pulling a car and then went on to Cabo in the car.

Since the truckers knew the road, they always blinked their lights first. On our way back to the border, I happened to blink my lights first and the trucker slowed down and let me go first. I am not sure how many bridges there were between the border and Cabo but it took me a long time to win that race.

Wear a diaper and place a piece of duck tape on the front windshield to mark the extreme side of the road

Practice and develop awareness of exactly where the right side tires are relative to where the pavement stops.
This is important primary where there is no shoulder.

Take a look at Highway 1's shoulder -- not so big. Sometimes the shoulder comes teamed up with a 2' drop. Be sure to carry a couple of trailer spares.

Not to be underrated, passing a semi in the opposite direction is huge fun.
