Use your mirrors, with experience you'll nail it. At first I would open the window and screen and hang out the window while creeping forward.

So is mine, when I can just see the pump in the rear-view camera, I'm right where I need to be.

The fuel fill on mine is also on the back.
I watch the mirrors, but equally important, when I'm pulling in to the pumps I pick spot that I figure is about the length of the RV away from the pump and put my front bumper there. Between my estimate of how far forward to go, and looking in the mirrors, I can get now close enough in one try that the hose reaches.

We have fills on both sides of the rig, just slightly behind the front tires so it's really easy to stop where needed.
