Loud bangs could be air bags popping. I've had it happen to me a few times and it sounds exactly like you said. It sounds like a bomb going off. One of them was when I was in the truck, I had just backed into my spot n set my brakes n it blew. Rocked the whole truck lol.

Thanks for the advice. I take a long time to back esperanza when it's something like that one. So I just picked at it until I had it. I'd just pull up and let folks by. I checked my air bags, today after reading that, didn't see or hear anything. Not leaking air. It's funny, a lot of times I can ace some tight spot or weird goofy spot, but can't back it into an empty parking lot to save my life. I think it's because I get lazy on my setup and don't take it slow if it's wide open.

I was looking at the pictures of how close those trailers were. I did a trailer pickup and the trailers were no more than 4 inches apart. I couldn’t get to the landing gear crank, so I had to hook up and drag the trailer (empty, thank goodness) out until I could access the gear. My truck doesn’t have air dump, so I saw this as my only option. Was this the right was to handle this situation?

My trainer did that once in training, in a dirt lot. I had one like that at a Georgia Pacific lot, there was a yard dog there though, I asked him to pull it out enough that I could get at the gear.
