Loving our 2014 Torque 380 5th wheel. Pulling it with a 2009 Chevy 3500 duelly. Pulls it great. It is big, taking a little retraining to back something so huge. Any pointers?http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/18/pujama8u.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/18/apyqu8u5.jpg

Hi Charlie263,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. We have a great bunch of folks here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge when needed.

That is a great looking unit. Join us at a rally when you can and show it off.

Take your time. Look twice. If you use a backup person train both of you to not move unless you have eye contact in the mirrors.

Have bluetooth in your truck?
Have your spotter call your phone and use the hands free. That or the portable family radios. But the phones being duplex are a better option.

And - watch for the tire scrub swinging that 3 axle around.

That is a great idea. I could put my phone on speaker and do the same thing. I like the advice about eye contact. Great advice. Thank you.

We have a golf cart and sometimes we just put our bicycles back there.
