I like the twirling of both hands in the mirror telling you which way to “turn your wheels” when your tow vehicle is no where near an obstacle the driver can’t see.


Ha. My father-in-law twirls his finger like I’m supposed to know what it means. I usually just turn the wheel one way and see if he reacts positively or negatively. And then I start looking for my wife...

Personally, I prefer to just do it myself. My wife, bless her heart, panics every time I get within 10 feet of anything and yells STOP.

Would you post your and your partner's back and forth audio of parking your camper/motorhome? I got a new dashcam and it's been my favorite recent toy. While reviewing videos, I realized it captured just what I said: the audio of my wife and I backing our trailer at the last couple of spots.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMURplDONl0

We got to Treasure Isle RV Park in Hot Springs, AR on Saturday of Labor Day. They had forgotten my reservation and assigned our spot to someone else. Office was closed, but over the phone they moved us into a different pull-thru spot, but right as we were getting out to start unhitching, they rolled up and sheepishly admitted, that spot was also taken.

They upgraded us to a lake front spot for no additional charge but warned us that it was a back-in. It was more narrow than their pull-thrus, but had a great back yard. Fortunately, my wife and I have gotten pretty decent at backing in.



Nice job. I think you two have that down good.

Thanks for the kind words.

We visited with my cousin and they put in a 30amp receptacle for us. But to get to their house, we had to back down the cul de sac; nice wide road, though.

We got back and parked and I jokingly asked my cousin's husband how we did? He said, "fine but you drive like grandmas." Slow and steady it is for us.
