This stop can be challenging to a beginner. Especially when there are a lot of obstacles in the yard. On this day it wasn’t too bad.

I like this camera angle. It really shows all of the tractor movements relative to the front end of the trailer.

At this stop you need to back thru a gate, cut towards the passenger side then around a corner and into a building to the receiving dock.

Be careful when backing into buildings.

Make sure your tractor and trailer are straight before backing in. It is often difficult to see thru your mirrors because of low lighting. Be sure to stop and check the clearance when your mirror passes thru the doorway. The wall was beat up from all of the mirrors that have hit it in the past.

Go slow when backing into buildings it is easy to forget about the mirrors as you are passing thru the doorway. Very often it will be a tight fit.
