Here's another tip:

Put your hand at the bottom of the steering wheel. If you want your trailer to go to your left, move your hand to the left. Work great to the right side also

Here's one tip that I learned when trying to back up a tiller fire truck. Grip the bottom of the steeringwheel at the bottom with both hands palms up with your thumbs sticking out to either side. Which ever way you want the trailer to go, push the steering wheel in the direction the corresponding thumb is pointing. It's the same as the post above, it's just easier for us firemen.

Thanks! Great method. I especially like the spot * tip.
May I never crunch a trailer fender again! (Oops, did I just admit something?)

Say what? If the spot i selected on my tow vehicle is even with the far corner of the lot and I start my turn, aren't I going to end up on someone elses lot? Glad I don't have any problems backing my trailer. Used to drive a semi and currently trailer a boat as well as a very short ATV trailer.

Steering wheel grip? I use one hand on top dead center and when I see more trailer than I want in a mirror, I turn that way to straighten up.

As far as that list of abbreviations goes... you forgot one:
PITA = neighbor with a dog that won't shut up.
