Yeah, but that's a darn expensive tester.

Not a bad gadget.

I just check the trailer lights, if I have problems I break out the test light and get to work..

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Looks good to me. I've got an outstanding Navigator 💝 so the two-person part isn't even a challenge.

Then the guiding person gives the driver hand signals, such as to the left or right, as well as easy does it, and using 2 hands show you how much more you need to go. Etc, etc.

Saves divorces.

Try it, you will like it.

Sort of do it the way that it's done at an airport, where a ground crew member is guiding a noisy jet, perfectly, every time.

Silence now, is REALLY golden.

Not necessarily, Andy.

When I had a LY motorhome, I asked my wife to watch and guide me backing into a camp site at a municipal park. She was in plain view of my mirrors and she quietly and methodically guided me to back right into a tree and damage the rear ladder. She was watching only the one side of my rear.

I should have had a premonition of this when 20 years before, while I was hospitalized with a badly spasm-ed back, I watched out of the hospital window when she got into my nice Volvo station wagon and started it; she didn't check to see that it was in gear, and the Volvo lurched forward and banged into the car parked in front. Two months later I had the front repaired and she was amazed that I had actually seen her do it.

Anyhow - she does not drive my TV or tow the AS; she never drove the moho.
