Default Backing up a steep slope.

Just wondering about your thoughts on this. Will it hurt the coach to back it up a 15% slope for about 200 feet? Want to make sure I don't hurt the transmission or anything else for that matter.

As long as you don't drag the rear end when you are beginning the slope, backing up a 15% slope is not going to hurt the coach, especially for only a couple of hundred feet.

As long as you can clear the rear approach angle you should be fine. Those rear overhangs are sometimes long....
