    Appreciate the info everyone, was just concerned that i'd be damaging the system if I was switching while the unit was in motion. Based on the replies it's not harmful if doing it at lower speeds or as long as wheels are moving uniformly if I have that correct.

    You’ll get comfortable with it. It’s pretty trouble free to operate back and fourth. Initially with something new were all reluctant because were afraid we’ll brake something. Across the board people have found brand new there more troublesome than after getting some miles on them.
