Back in the Pete with Eaton transmission. Forward use of Creep mode seems almost useless in practice. It takes the word "creep" to the extreme. In reverse, there is no "Creep" mode, but the throttle is much more forgiving in that uphill backing situation that was mentioned. A light steady throttle CAN result in a smooth/gentle bump of the dock. More later. Gotta run, I'm off to the DMV for CDL renewal, and the ever popular HazMat test. Yay!
