Smile getting started

Hi, my husband and i just bought a new motorhome, our first, and i am the designated driver. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to line up the gas tank with the gas pump. our open road allegro has the gas tank at the back of the motorhome and i end up having to get in and out of the motorhome at the pump several times before i get it close enough to pump the gas. i am new at this so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you!

Do you have a rear camera. If properly adjusted you should be able to see the pump in the corner of your monitor as soon as your rear end is at the pump. If no, then, if possible, have another passenger act as your spotter.

I also do alot of the driving and almost all of the gas fillups. I have it figured that the tank is approx 2 feet from the bedroom window. I line up the window, then roll forward about 2 feet.

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2! We're really happy to have you join the group! Congrats on the new rig! I would just have him get out, stand at the nozzle, and wave when you are in the right position! Good luck & God bless!
