Allstays will allow you dial in many of the major fuel stops. I have never gotten into a fuel stop that I couldn't get out of - but - I've had to unhook from my toad once or twice. When you aren't sure, I use Google Maps - Street View to take a closer look. Especially when I am not on interstates. Also, be careful of the inordinately steep entrances. Again, voice of experience talking as I dragged my hitch!! Ugly sound.

I also bought the new Garmin RV 770 NA LMT-S. What a ridiculous long name.
Here is a link to it. http://amzn.to/2ndvtn0

It seems to be a great all in one and has a huge screen and wifi/bluetooth access.

Are there any other gas stations that cater to RV's like Big J's? I have a gas

coach.
dont go I75 straight through Detroit, when you get south of Toledo, take Us 23 up through Ann Arbor

Is there a way to search RVpark reviews so you can find top rated campgrounds, no matter where they are in the US?

There are a few truck stops that have a dedicated RV lane or two, but not many. Generally, you need to use the same lanes as cars do. I've had several where it's a bit tricky (close turns, waiting for a car to move out of the way) but I've only had to pass on a couple stations over the past 8 months. For a few months we were in Oregon and California where there were no Sam's Club, where we're members. The last couple of months I've been using them (less expensive) but need to be careful which lane I get in so I can get out. With experience I've been able to navigate some pretty tight parking lots and gas stations. Another poster cautioned about in and out slopes -- yeah, you gotta watch that. And be aware of overhangs. Even though our rig is tall, I've never had a problem, but I still watch it.
Our MH is 37' + toad, so it's a big rig.

RVparkreviews and freecampsites are the two best and from there I branch into the federal sites. Reserve America is great. I have allstays too and while it is information rich, the UI is just horrible and confusing. I use it but wow they need an upgrade.

First of all #1...Good Sams, if you are a member. (Which you should be. )Parks and Campgrounds. (Just find a location on the map and it pulls everything up in the area. )
