Same here! the RV Plus card is hassle free. I never use the RV lanes and Pilot is just as easy. Yes, sometimes there's a wait behind a 18 wheeler but the drivers are always respectful and many ask intuitive questions. get the Plus card, saves time and money.

We also use Flying J or Pilot as often as possible. The Plus card works great and we always use the truck lane. The card does a transfer from our checking account every billing cycle along with a e-mail on the amount due. Works like a charm and we get a discount too. There are times when we are on the road and we will overnight there at no cost. We try to find a spot where we can put one side of the slides out.

Curious why you would use the RV plus charge card (.04/gas, .06/diesel off a gallon) when you could use the PenFed Visa which gives 5% back? Even with today's lower prices, say, $2.50/gallon, that's 12.5 cents/gall off, bringing the price per gallon down to $2.375/gallon. Are there other benefits I'm not seeing?

Well guys, the OP was discussing FJ and GAS motorhomes. So now everybody's jumping in defending their use of the truck lanes which have only diesel. Talk about getting off topic.

No flying j for us. They are too over priced and too busy for me.

First choice Costco (even when crowded, we have had excellent help and service from the attendants.) Second choice Flying J (with the RV Plus card thru Good Sam, the credit card issues seemed to disappear and the RV lanes are nice) Pilots rarely have room at the gas pumps (interesting that Costcos almost always are RV friendly and Pilots are not) so we generally will skip Pilots. If none of those are available, I start searching on gas buddy and hope to find a place we can get in and out of.

Convenient. No hassle. Don't go in to pay. Easy in an out for a 65 ft. Rig with tow. Not worth two bucks for me personally. Safety the main reason.

Costco great gas prices but Flying J more convenient. Never had a problem.

We use Pilot/FlyingJ exclusively, we're not gas so our choice of refueling is definitely small. We are Good Sam Lifetime members and have the credit card. We NEVER have to go inside to have the pump turned on, swipe tbe card, pump and leave! We save 8cents off the cash price that adds up fast. I choose not to stand in line behind someone that can't make up their mind between chicken or pizza!

It doesn't matter what the original topic is, if FJ is even remotely related to it, the thread always goes in the same direction and ends in the same place. It's about the most predictable phenomenon in nature, unless we mention wallydocking. Get a thread going with both of those topics involved and I suspect a black hole will open.

Gassers clearly second class

To get back on topic, yes gasser are second class. I had one once and would have to agree with OP.

I really don't understand the "second class thing". What is second class about a gasoline engine motorhome? The ones I have seen at shows are pretty darn nice. If you are referring to gas stations, (I won't mention Flying J) I fill up right next to the gas coaches. If I am next to a gas powered coach I always say Hi and talk to them. What is second class?

I'm sorry, but this is kinda like me complaining that gas stations are not setup for my 43ft mh. The rv islands ARE setup for gas mh's. One must remember it is a truckstop and their number one customer are trucks, rv's and cars are second.
