More importantly for us is the ability to park under a shade tree when it's hot, but I doubt there is any software that addresses 'shade tree parking'.
Actually a carrier rack would be a disadvantate wouldn't it?
If you are hauling a RACK...you would still need to UNLOAD on the hose reel side. Doesn't your rack unload on the SAME SIDE as a hose reel.
I guess I am really glad because I unload out of the back of a box truck so I don't care which side I am on!
BTW...I NEVER NEVER NEVER unload on someones driveway unless I have to. If for some reason I were to have a line bust or spill something...I don't want it to be on their "new concrete" or "new blacktop" driveway. Because you know that is where it is going to happen!
Rule #1 is we always park on the street or along the road when we can! Also when you are then blowing off their driveway you can do a much better job if your truck isn't in the way!
