What are the best fuel stops for RV

Fairly new to RVing and have not left my home state of TX yet. Will be making an Alaskan run this summer and I was wondering if there is a consensus on what are the best or most convenient fuel stops on the open road?

Flying J's are easy to get in/out of. Don't know about Pilot stations.

Once you cross in to Canada, Petro-Canada stations will be plentiful. They are easy in easy out. Once on the ALCAN brand choices will narrow just look for easy in and out.

In Alaska I like Holiday Stations, some have propane and dumps. THe one down the street from me even has potable water.

I'm driving a 34 foot MH, pulling a toad and don't really worry about it. There will always be one around I can get to.

I like the stations with the pumps parallel to the road so I can pull straight in and out. I usually start looking for gas stations when I get down to half a tank.

Parallel pumps and any station that honors my 5% discount CC. I don't need dump stations, water, restaurants, & tourist info.

Flying J's, Love's and Pilot's are what I keep an eye out for. Most are easy in easy out..there is the occassional exception. I have a Pilot card so that I can pump and pay.

There is an app called My Pilot and another called Gas Buddy and another called Love's . Just type in those names in your App store and they will come up. Another is called All Stays that has campgrounds, truck stops etc.

I prefer FJ. Loves is a last resort, even to independent fuel stops.

Locating fuel will not be a problem. We did find that most places we stopped would not accept American Express. Visa and MC, no problem altho you may need to reset pay at pump due to max amount.
