Near max weight & backing (kinda for new drivers)

I haven't seen much on backing near max weight (80,000 lbs) so I figured I'd give a pointer, or some insight, on this. I've been gettin loads maybe 60,000 lbs gross & the trlr responds to a more acute 'jack kniving', but this 79,250 lbs load, the trlr seems to be 'lazy' at that more acute angle. Tandems aren't all the way back, middle & legal, I'm just sayin for us newer fellas don't forget physics of things & if possible, minimize the jack knife as much as you can so you can keep your backing line & actually have the trlr respond to it. Though that should be done anyway, I just find it that a little more obtuse, the better off you are w/ a near max load backing a dry van.

Blind siding it...

I've come to notice that blind siding comes easier to me, in some situations, than drivers side, do to the fact I can see where my drive tandems & truck are in absurdly tight spots. It does play allot off of good trlr positioning initially though. I'm in a FL casscadia evo & the mirrors are crap in comparison to what I was in prior, a Volvo 670 imo. Im still a noob, but think the dreaded blind side should be looked at as a viable option, however necessary or not, than be avoided at all costs, as how I was taught. Any opinions?
