The advice through out this forum is very helpful. One just needs to boil it down to develop their own techniques through practicing. I took the advice of a few post and watched numerous videos about backing up your TT. My hackles when up at instructors who made things more difficult than needed...turn left if you want your TT to go right and vise-versa, Keep IT Simple, put your hand at the bottom of the TV steering wheel and move it in the direction you want the TT to go in...you can't get any simpler than that...one less thing you need to concentrate on. Some instructors encourage the use of walkie-talkies to communicate btw driver and spotter. You want your hands free to concentrate on the issue at hand and not clicking buttons on and off. The use of Hand-Free communication is the safest. On our first TT camping experience at Lk Livingston, TX my sister, brother-in-law, DW and I watch our next door neighbors trying to navigate their site with colored-coded walkie-walkies destroying the rear quarter panel of their TT. It was evident the driver & spotter were spending more time with the devices in their hands trying to communicate with each other than paying attention to the issue at hand. We ask if they want some help but the answer was a definite NO. This was not their first TT. Just imagine
if the driver was communicating "hands-free" and concentrating on L/R mirrors,position of rear wheels,etc. what the outcome might have been.
SO videos are great... they may put you in the ballpark but nothing is like practice...when you can make mistakes without causing damage to the TT or your marriage. Maybe it should be the other way around. My DW and I have had a lot of laughs at the practice lot.
