Re: Sailing while A-4 is in gear
Eric, that is correct. If you don't hold the shift lever back (in reverse gear position), it will slip. A little detail my Cat30's PO neglected to mention to me, but I figured out the second time I backed out of my slip. That's part of why it's called a "reversing gear", not a transmission.
