Am I missing something here? I am kind of a n00b. Here is my routine at a truck stop.
1 Pull up to pump.
2 Note number on pump.
2 Go inside and have credit card swiped for up to $400.00.
3 Pump fuel and clean windshield.
4 Drive away when tank is full.

I agree that pulling forward is great. I have had truck driver's pull forward but not far enough. The fill is on the rear of my coach. I done hold it against them their just use to another truck driver being behind them. Had to sit and wait 20 minutes one time to move up the extra 5 feet I needed to fuel. Was towing a car on a dolly so I couldn't back out of the pump. I have learn to sit back and look for an empty pump of a driver that has pulled far enough forward. I use Pilot and Flying J and have their card so no need to wait.
If you ever pull into the pumps at South of the Border beware you need to be facing the building or they will not allow you to fill up.

Yeah, Simple isn't it. Some posts have a tendency to get more critical than others.

We always fill up on the truckers side...... much easier with a bigger nozzle which fills up faster. We have a Pilot/Flying J credit card (no going in necessary) and always pull forward immediately to allow the trucker behind us to pull to the pumps and start fueling. If we are going to go in we will pull around to an area out of the way. If it is not a Pilot or a Flying J truck stop, my wife goes in with our "regular" credit card and the clerk turns on the pump. When I am finished filling up I will again pull forward immediately or pull to an area "out of the way". Have been doing this for years and have never had a problem.

I fuel at Pilot and Flying J only. I use the RV Plus Card and get a discount and pay at the pump as well. Some say that they are too expensive, but what does it cost to have a tow truck come snatch you up off the interstate because you went price shopping for cheap fuel and filled up your tank with dirty or watery fuel. I've been fueling up at Pilot and Flying J for 5yrs now and NEVER had issues with bad fuel.
