Could never back a trailer to save my life. Then someone told me "put the palm of one hand at 6 O'clock on the wheel. If you want the trailer to go left, palm the wheel to the left (clockwise), want it to go the the right, palm it to the right (counter clockwise).

Didn't help my depth perception much, but it certainly got me going in the right direction each time.

There is some truth to that but try backing a hay baler with a loaded hay wagon hooked to the baler that way. Everything is backwards.
