Delivered earlier and plenty of room to almost straighline I mean wide open and I hadda pull up a buncha times..

Part of it was the Automatic transmission gotta really give it some gas...

other part was me being tired having started off in Kingman about Midnight...

Next load ready tommorow spending the night at San Diego Pilot..

The sad part is this place is a sort of a mess though better than alot of Pilots and I only hadda straighten up once and hit my hole but this morning I couldn't hit it wide open..

What gives...maybe the nap I got waiting for them to unload me

lol.
Do not blame your rusty backing on an automatic, not buying it.

Just keep a rollin and everything will smooth out for you.

Few more months you'll be sittin pretty docking and backing
with minimal pull-ups.

Going forward in a truck that is new to you is weird. So is backing up a truck that is new to you. The sight lines, steering and pivot point is different.

The other thing is some days you can back a trailer through a knot hole and other days, you can't hit an aircraft hanger with a grain of rice.

You are okay my brother! Take your time.
You know what you are doing, It's just everything is a bit different.

I have the same problem some days. Like RJ said, some days you can back a trailer through a knot hole and other days, you can't hit an aircraft hanger with a grain of rice. That is completely me!

You'll be back in the swing of things in no time. :yahoo:

Who cares how many times you have to pull up? If you don’t hit anything,
That's all I was trying to stress.

Rust happens, cobwebs gather, do we not know this?

All this talk about just having a bad day or the lines of your truck are different or it was too windy or whatever: poppycock !

What is this the newbie section. 🙄

It's ok.

Getting through the rust is just as easy as actually dusting off cobwebs from the ceiling.

After that your good to go.

TESTIFY!

You should see the gong show my career has become. I can back a pony pup in circles and pile either box on a dime but this semi is BULLSHIT!

Fixed.

Thats how I am when they stick me in a straight truck.
I used to wield those things like toys forward and back.

Now I have to really think specially doing a negative.
