Trip planning for lowboy trailers

Ok so i haven't found any good info so far and im sick of winging my way thru while im still learning trip planning after almost being done with my second year of driving. I basically want to know how to trip plan for really low clearance trailers to avoid issues when hauling. I have struggled a lot with trip planning and im basically failing at it cause it takes me forever and cuts into my drive time and ive wound up in some really awkward situations like finding 12'6" bridges and low house wires, under weight limited bridges, and truck routing in areas, and i really want to conquer this because not knowing what to expect is causing me extra anxiety i don't need. I also want to better manage my time for more miles as a part of a team and find the time to actually feel human and enjoy normal stuff like eating, bathroom breaks, showers, and doing laundry. Im getting ready to bite the bullet and start dragging rgn trailers but ive been trying to figure out how to trip plan and then cover my a## because they have a greater chance of high centering or something going wrong. My company keeps pushing the issue, but i feel like im stuck on the basics. I really didn't learn trip planning and after watching videos and reading articles im still not getting it. Thanks in advance.
