May be crude, but the way I know mine works-find a steep snow covered
upgrade-one that progressively gets steeper  (my driveway), slowly climb up
with as little momentum as possible, when you get stuck, engage pos 1 (you
may need to roll back down to "engage"), see if you get further till stuck
again, engage 2, see if you go further. I do this in reverse.
