Happy camping.
Satellite view can show stations with parallel fuel lanes that accept big rigs easier

First... try to plan your route.... then use Google Earth to look at possible fuel locations... with the Street View feature, I have found that I can locate several "possible" locations along my route. The same goes for RV parks... the pics you see on their website can be a bit misleading at times.... zoom in and get a close up look before you reserve a site.

I'm really puzzled by this comment. I currently have a 39' gasser and tow my car and have never had a problem at ANY gas station. I'm not saying that I can use any pump and sometimes I have to wait for the right island, but after 18 years of RVing I can only recall one station that I had to bypass and that was due mostly to the steep drive.

Remember that these gas stations have long double tanker trucks pulling in to fill their tanks they are bigger and more cumbersome than you but they seem to manage.

A few local stations that I once thought to be impossible, I now use regularly. Ease of in/out seems to be related to how low the fuel is and how far to the next FJ with RV Lanes is on our planned route. Most of our travels take us up the I15 through Barstow (100mi)or 395 via Hesperia (60mi). We know we can fuel in either place so, try to make sure we stop at one of those when returning home so we have plenty of gas to get back there on the next trip. Also use the Google Street View when planning routes. Works great usually. Never know when another vehicle will park in a place making it hard to leave though. Just be patient and you will get in/out OK.
