We bought our 44í coach in June and after its thorough check up by my husband we are now ready to use it. I do not know how to drive it but my goal is to be familiar with itís operation and at least be able to move it should it be necessary. In time I would like to be comfortable/confident enough to drive it for short periods of time. I can parallel park our suburban My driving lessons will start soon, but what i wanted to mention is this: to ease my anxiety about not having the ability to drive it in an emergency (such as needing to get home), I have a list of 3 local friends with commercial driverís license who are willing to help. I feel much better now that I feel we are covered .

That's great you are willing to learn .

Maybe look for a 'place' that teaches air brakes.

I live in Canada, and you can't legally drive any vehicle with air brakes without taking a course, followed by taking a knowledge test.

Believe me, I shake my head reading many posts on this forum due to the lack of basic knowledge some on this board have of the routine maintenance, and simple tests required to safely drive!

I am really lucky because my husband has all of those endorsements and experiences; he has had years of driving big rigs and farm equipment and is also a licensed pilot so safety is always forefront in his thoughts and actions. The only problem is that he is not the most patient teacher but has promised to work on that personality trait And while I am a bit intimidated by all of it, I feel that it is at least a necessity to learn what I am able to and capable of. Thanks for the encouragement.

Also I know that there are different requirements in various states here; our state doesn't require a special license. In a way I find that frightening!
