Raw vs RGB histogram

It does nothing else but lie.

I always have trouble with one
channel burning out when shooting something very vibrant

With a good reason. See following exampkes: the first is and RGB-like histogram; not true RGB, but it reflects the effect of WB. The second one is the raw histogram. Note, that the RGB shows, that the red is the highest, while in fact the green is higher. If you expose until the the RGB histogram shows the red clipping, the green will be clipped by far, while the red is still not clipped.
