My 2012 Honda Pilot has a back up camera. It is terrific for backing up to connect to the trailer. It can be a little challenging to see in some light conditions like sunrise or sunset. I found that adding a strip of white reflective tape to the front of the trailer hitch makes it easier to see.

The issue with the wife helping me hook up is that she does not seem to understand that I am not strong enough to pick up the tongue on a 7500 lbs trailer and move it over a couple inches so it will line up with the ball. Seems a simple concept to me but she seems to not get it.

It is pretty funny, everyone says the same thing about not understanding hand signals and the arguments that follow.

Levelling is another issue all together and I do that myself as well.

Good idea. Or even a little white paint. What gets me is that little bit of roll you get from the park pin play. My e-brake sticks and I dont like using it
