Backing trials complete
Just got back from our first backing experience with the 5'er. The only experience I had was backing in in our driveway when we brought it home. Thought we better do some practice before we hit the road, and I wanted to check out the turning ability with the Sidewinder, so we headed to a big empty parking lot a few miles from here. I'm much relieved about having installed the Sidewinder, now won't have to worry about connecting with the cab of the truck. One less thing to be concerned with when trying to negotiate into a parking space. For me, backing up is a bit different from the TT we had, but I got the hang of it after a few tries. I think the biggest difference is the fact that you have to start straightening out your turn sooner, as someone on here suggested. I at least feel comfortable now leaving with it.
Also didn't have any problem with the hitching and un-hitching once I got the wedge adjusted. Definitely glad I installed the Sidewinder.
Now, on to N.C. this month for the shake down cruise.
