tape

I also always hook up alone and I also use a small piece of masking tape on he inside center of the tailgate and I line up with the center of the tt. It usually takes me 2 or 3 in and outs to get it but it only takes a couple of minutes. happy camping!

I love my backup camera. Worked great on my old Hensley Arrow - kind of like a plane doing an aerial refueling, just put the stringer in the reciever. Hopefully it work as well on the ProPride 3P I am installing on my new camper in the morning.

Works for me too, plus it was inexpensive!

I mounted a mirror to my power jack. I hitch up solo and get it on the first try, every time.

Here's a link for pictures and info.

Your link requires login - do you have another source we can look at?

I've used the sticks with balls. Work pretty good - got a Harbor Freight onsale for like $9. Check their ads - I don't buy anything there at isn't onsale

Oh - looks like they are onsale now!

Magnetic Trailer Alignment Kit

It's not perfect - but most of the time I could get it on the first shot.

I have used the magnetic alignment balls but did not care for them, I purchased the Peak wireless backup camera that mounts on the license plate. I put a piece of reflective tape on the front of the tongue to help with the depth perception and I am much happier with the results.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee as a tow vehicle, I open the rear hatch and use the hook for hatch door as a guide, it has to be just slightly right of center on the coupling and it's right on.
