Picked up our trailer from storage today and took it to our new (to us/first ever) season lease site. All goes well, pull up to back the trailer on site ... and had one of those episodes where nothing worked right. Normally I back either right in where I want or close enough for some minor fine tuning. Gee, I backed right up and hitched the trailer up without missing a beat. This site is average difficulty with an assortment of trees to thread through. Not a difficult site but one that requires some precision turns and good maneuvering skills.
First attempt, not far enough forward. Next attempt, my left mirror hits a tree that I didn't realize was there. Third attempt, drive around the campground to reposition the trailer, and this time nearly back the trailer over the railroad tie separating our site from the next one. Pull forward, back up again and now I nearly take out the city water. Back up again and I'm pretty much in the center of the site. OK, try again. Closer and I can finally get the truck clear of the tree the left mirror hit. Well, you get the idea . Three more attempts to get the trailer positioned just right.
This would have been great entertainment if someone had been there to watch.
I'm taking this as an omen that our traveling days should end.
