All of the reasons I do not fuel or overnight in a truck stop have been very well stated. If I am never there, I can never complain.

CJ7 1) Not all pilot stations have RV lanes but most flying J's do
2) RV lanes have both gas & diesel
3) All the flying J's I have been to jave RV pumps in front
4) I have the pilot flying J card and it is nice to fill without restarting and you get a discount too if you are a good sams member

We have a Pilot/Flying J charge card that lets us fuel with no limits other than $2,500 per month. We get an email bill and 10 days later the payment is drawn by direct debit from our checking account. There is also a few cents discount per gallon.

To find which locations have RV lanes there is a smartphone app.

I use Pacific Pride card locks whenever I can. The card is free and you do have a small fee but it always comes out ahead. There is usually no waiting and easy in and out.
The only time I've had a problem with a trucker was a few weeks ago in Eden Id. at the truck stop there. There is a dedicated lane for PP cards and as I fueling, my Trade winds takes fuel really slow, he came up to me and yelled about being slow and blocking the truck lanes. I asked him if he was using card lock and you should have seen the look on his face at that one. Funny thing was that he was blocked in and had to wait till was done so that he could pull thru and get into another line to get his fuel.

You should check out this card: http://www.goodsamclub.com/pfj/

It works well for me, and is probably the same card that Heating Man and bdickson mention in their posts.

There is another RV loyalty card available direct from Pilot/FlyingJ, but this one that is available for Good Sam members is a step up with a few extra benefits.

I have been using the truck lanes for fueling for 6 years and have luckly had no problems with truckers. After fueling I will pull forward and free the pump if I need to pay inside just like they do.

I have the Flying-J RV card. With or without debit card, it's a hit or a miss wether I have to go inside.

Depends on the Flying-J
