Be kind to your wife as she is directing you backing it. It can get frustrating at times for both of you.

And, with this, don't get butthurt if your other half yells at you while frustrated! Get settled, have drink and laugh about it later.

Nothing loses its value quicker than an RV. Don't purchase a low optioned RV first, churn through several more RVs until you finally purchase one that you really love and should have purchased to start with. The RV escalator is an expensive ride to get to the top. TV purchases are kind of the same deal. Purchase more than you need and every new RV will not require a trip back to the TV dealer's lot.

we always try to remember to turn off the water whenever we leave the trailer and to make that easier for DW, I added a garden hose shutoff valve with the quick flip shutoff, so we/she don't have to crank on a hose bibb or wrestle with one of those lever arm campground water valves,....

DW gets as nervous as a cat in a room full of mouse traps when it's time to back in. It did get better. We got the basic "commands" down now and we are both happy when it goes smooth.

Fortunately only to the dump station, where I was able to return before the next campsite occupant arrived and discovered the surprise. Lol
