Place DW center of backup zone.
two feet away from obstacle.
Tell her "not to move."
Back up, and when she moves, I'm close enough.

BTW, WHOA! in Texan means the same as STOP.

When she waves all fingers at me, I now it is the same, from her, as just waving one.

We've been married just shy of 47 years, I think I'll forgo her assistance. She's capable I'm not.

I'm usually the one directing and always use the same signals. First I make sure DH can see me. If I can't see him in the mirror he can't see me. Then I use full arm signals:

1/ 2 arms pointing right...go right
2/ 2 arms pointing left...go left
3/ 2 arms parallel...go straight
4/ Make fist high in the air...stop

Always works. If ever I go out of view hubby stops until I'm back in view.

Most important signal, regardless of how its sent. STOP! After a Stop!, do not move the rig until spotter says OK to move.
