Just a cheap tip....my DW is on her mobile phone and me on mine (speaker) when parking. Never any issues EXCEPT she expects the 37ft fifth wheel to turn on a dime from a dead stop, really?!

Often I need to take the fiver alone back to our spot in the mountains, 65 miles north of home. I use 5 std sized orange cones on the drivers side of the rig. I walk it and place each cone
In the line I need to park on. I PACE THE LENGTH OF THE RV FROM THE REAR BUMPER TO THE CENTER OF THE DRIVERS DOOR. ( takes less than 2 minutes) I back in following the cones with mirrors and vision. When straight, I know the LAST CONE NEEDS TO BE WHERE I EXIT THE TRUCK. Simple and effective.

We've only come across this once down in Sarasota, Fl. I was surprised but also appreciative since I was pulling doubles (golf car trailer). He even helped unhook my golf car trailer and put it at the rear of my site. Then he was a set of eyes to back in the fiver. I thought it was nice and when I'm on vacation I tend to be generous so I gave him 10 bucks.

Couple of months ago, in one of our sites, a couple of gentlemen came over while I was directing my DH (Santa Bob), wanting to do it instead. DH politely told them that he was used to his wife and that was all he needed. I fell in love again.

We had this at KOA in Monterey/Watsonville CA. Guy was more of annoyance than he was helpful.

Then there was the time that the guy got pissy, stood there sucking sour grapes, and eventually stomped off because both my wife and I made a joke that I only listen to her (and then proceeded to park via cell phone)...

Oh wait, that was here- Sycamore RV Resort.

Sorry man- I have hundreds of parkings with her. She knows what I like and I know what she likes. It just works better for us. No offense meant by it.
