Hi everyone! I use the cell phone which ties into the Ford F350 Sync so he can hear me thru the radio.

Hi all. I'm so glad to be a member of this forum, Amy and I are in the process of purchasing our Heartland Big Country 3650RL. Today I was at Costco and noticed a nice pair of walkies. The thought crossed my mind that they would solve the very problem you guys outlined above. Then I wondered if perhaps they had a voice activated headset, bluetooth perhaps. But like you guys have already suggested cell phones work the best unless you are in the boondocks.--lol I hope I did not post twice. I already posted but it disappeared......oops!
As funny as it is, the RV (2009 21FBS Northtrail) is my toy! My husband and I use hand singals, like the Navy uses onbaord the aircraft carriers. No screaming, yelling or anything! However, just to be clear, if I can't see my husband out of one of the mirrors, I STOP! Don't care about other traffic coming through the loop etc..I STOP! He then remembers as gets back where we see each other.
Just our way!
We have found a great system. My wife drives and I direct but from in front of the truck. I can see the angles that way and tell her which way to turn the wheel to back the trailer. Just use hand signals. Works perfectly. She recognizes that I can tell angles better than she can. If I point to the right she turns to the right. This turns the back to the left and vice versa. No more lost vocal chords.
