X2 on the turning.I had a 4000 lb boat that would spin my tires when backing it up. I put my 2500 in 4x4 low range and just let it creep back and never spin a wheel. just don't do any tight turning and you should be fine.
With a 1500 you have no options for lockouts, just don't turn the wheel in 4 lo, hard to do when backing a trailer. In a 2500 or 3500 aftermarket lockouts help greatly as you can still turn the wheels in 4 lo on hard surface.
