Think about every turn and set up for it. You'll eventually get to the point where it becomes second nature. For me the hardest part was backing up. Had enough practice in parking lots backing 53' into dock spaces. Some people have said that it's easier if you put your hands on the bottom of the steering wheels when you backup. If you wanted the trailer to go left you move your hands left (which turns the wheel right). I just stuck to the old fashion way. If you take your time you'll get it. Everyone expects trucks to be slow.
