Hi my name is Gary. My wife and I live in
Washington state just outside of Vancouver. We have just purchased a 28' travel trailer. So now I am learning how to back up . Fortunately I have some very patient friends that are helping me learn.

Its been 12 years since I had a 5th wheel. I am now semi retired and really excited about having the time to use the trailer. I enjoy the forum and look forward to making lots of new friends.

Gary

Good going Gary, welcome to the forum and back to the rv life style. You'll master the backing up it just takes a little time for it to come back. Enjoy the rest of the season. Safe and trouble free travels.

Gary, welcome to the forum. When I was taught a long time ago, I was told to remember with your hands at the bottom of the steering wheel, move it in the direction you want the back of the trailer to move.

Welcome Gary. Enjoy yourself. I used to live in Portland and SW Washington is a wonderful place to explore.

Happy Camping
Arnold

OH, another new person!! Hubby and I are rehabbing an RV, so I have yet to begin to learn to back it up so I can relate. How exciting for you to begin to use your trailer.

Welcome to the forum!
