I'm planning to try an ez-out to remove them. Any other ideas?
Backing the Trailer
A lttle tip. Hold the steering wheel at the BOTTOM in the center. Then if you want to move trailer left, move hand left. Move hand right to turn trailer right.
Try that in an empty parking lot for 10 minutes and you'll be able to put it right where you want to!
