After trying to back into a site on our first day, we realized pretty quickly that we needed to go to RV Driving School. We tried to get instructions in Dallas, but the 1 instructor there was full for the next 2 months. He was working 7 days a week. Craziness! This pandemic has everyone driving RVs! We were referred to an instructor in San Antonio. We felt that wasn't too far to drive so we booked the dates. It was 2 days of 4-hour instructions.
Our instructor, Duane Kunze with rvschool.com, is a very knowledgeable man who was a truck driver in a former life and a current RV owner. We started on Day 1 learning how to back up in a straight line. It's not as easy as it sounds. Duane gave John a helpful hint. He said to get a point of reference as far back on the trailer that he can see and keep that in sight. John chose the red light reflector on the side of the RV. It made all the difference in the world. He was able to back up without any problems.
On Day 2, he taught us how to back into 90-degree sites and angled sites. It's all about getting your mind trained on turning your steering wheel to the right to get your trailer move to the left and vice versa. He even gave me some helpful tips on helping him navigate into a spot. After 2 days, John felt much more comfortable and we felt that this was money well spent.
