The next investment that helped with our 5er was a set of cheep walkie talkies. that keeps the frustrated yelling down when you are trying to listen to your DW and she is telling you where to go

We picked up our 5th about a week ago but couldn't go camping this weekend due to sons prom. I had errands to run Sat morning, so I hooked up the fiver and took it with me. Found me a spot to find out how far I can turn without getting into cab. Then slid the hitch back to get an idea how far I can manuver. Almost got 90 deg with my short bed Ram. I've pulled trailers since I was a kid on a farm, but never a 5th wheel. A little practice ahead of time won't hurt.
