Parking Dot Location

As discussed in many threads here, the Lazy Days confidence course uses stick-on dots for several cues. One pair is for parking, and is located near the back of the coach. It marks when the driver needs to turn away from the site and pull forward until the helper's shoulder disappears in the mirror.

My side dots have blown away and I can't find the materials from the class. I also cannot find the Youtubes from LD's nom de plume, betterrving.com. (I wonder if their lawyers made them take them down?)

Dose anyone know where those side dots are supposed to be placed?

Thanks.

That's the full version. The link above works for me. Well worth taking time to watch and then set up your dots. We have watched the videos many, many times and took his course at Lazy Days twice. We are better, safer drivers because of it.

I put the dots out on the ground, but they are never there when I get to a new CG. lol


It is a very good video and 8 ft works fine on my rig.

As for where to get the dots. They are just paper stick-on dots. You can get them in most places where office supplies are sold.

Thanks

Thanks, everyone. 8 feet it is. I have plenty of dots because they give you a small sheet of them during the course. I think I'll sit through the classroom part again when we're at LD later this month.
