Harvest the most important take-away here is that you didn't scrub another trailer, or took out a fender and backed cleanly into the hole.

Ironically most of the drivers that were giving you grief have forgotten that they were all rookie drivers and I'm sure that it took them a while to get the hang of backing up a trailer into the slot. I'm not too far ahead of you and every day I get a little better. Some days I dial it in and some days I outright SUCK and can't get square to the dock to save my life. Don't sweat it it will come and don't worry about the drivers talking crap. Keep driving on good luck.

Turn your CB Down when you start hearing that crap.... If they were real drivers they would help you instead of Bash you. When I see a driver having difficulties I get out and help them. And guess what? They're not always newby's. Sometimes guys that have been driving for several years have those days and appreciate the help.. This happened to me just 2 days ago. It was at night and really tight parking. I saw the guy pull up at least 4 times and got out to help him. When he got in I was walking back to my truck and he thanked me. I said are you a new driver and he said hell no it's just one of those days.

Harvest did you ever find out what the problem was with your electrical system about a month ago?

Any new updates, Harvest?

I know I'm not the only one wondering how you're doing.
