Back to backing... Question for you GTOWN and Brett and Old School... When you first got started did you find it easier or more difficult to back squarely, meaning lined up just right...when you had lots of room to play with ? For instance; I find it easier to get lined up and parked when I have other trucks or objects around, either at a dock or in a yard. Backing with just lines on the ground seems like it would be easier but I have found that the reference of another truck or trailer really helps my backing. I'm sure it's a matter of practice practice practice but was wondering if it's a common issue. I have to force myself to concentrate differently when I have tons of room and no other objects around Makes me laugh at myself actually. Tony

At first more difficult...but once I learned how-to consistently setup, it didn't happen anymore. I know you folks get tired of me preaching this, but a good setup enables easier backing 99% of the time.
