Backing Up Toad/Trailer
Having fivers before backing was never an issue. Never requested pull thru sites or needed one. When switching to a coach I assumed my backing up days were over.
Pulled into a Flying J somewhere in Alabama yesterday. I missed the lane that would have guided me into the RV pumps. I could have gone through the diesel truck area, back out onto the congested road, through a stop light, and made the entrance again, but I decided to give my backing skills an attempt with my short motorcycle trailer attached.
What I found was that if I went slow and used only my rear view camera I could back straight up for as far as I needed, in this case about 50 yards. Next time we dry camp in a roomy Walmart lot I am going to play around with backing around a corner to see if that is even remotely possible.
This may be regular stuff to you more experienced MH folks out there, I just assumed that since I couldn't see my trailer in my mirrors I wouldn't be able to back up straight for any distance.
