Two other bits of advise. (Learned by hard experience.) Always, always, always remember to place your wheel chocks before beginning to unhitch. Never, never, never unhook your safety chains until after you are unhitched from the ball.

(Backing a trailer is not intuitive. The first trick is, put your hand on the bottom of your steering wheel, hand to the left, trailer to the left, hand to the right, trailer to the right. That's all I've learned so far. I am looking for more instruction my self.

I have two neon poles with magnets on the bottom, I put one on the ball and one on the stinger. When the pole on the ball gets knocked off, I know the hitch is over the ball. Works great! I would never be able to hitch it by myself without them. It still takes me a while to do it, though.
