It was just a few weeks ago that someone posted a link to a couple of videos that showed how to give good backing signals -- like a aircraft ground person. But I can't find them for the life of me. I want to show them to my gud wyf Lindy so that she can help me back up better. I tried a demonstration, but she just laughed. :-). Can someone repost the link? Thanks.

I had Reace install 2 50w floodlights on the rear bumper with a switch on my dash by the trailer brake. I do not trust my wife's hand signals (generally delivered from behind the trailer, out of my view). They have proven very useful for calming my nerves backing up in the dark.

Which Don, your wife's hand signals or the lights?
