sorry to politely disagree, but since we've been fulltiming and traveling over 50,000 miles in the last two years, I have only used a 'truck stop' for diesel twice in that time(early on), and 'normal' fuel stations, especially Walmart Murphy stations, hundreds
of times since our start... WITH a toad, and my 35' coach...
it can be done, us 'normal' people do it all the time...
you have to plan your EXIT whenever you use any fuel station, even truck stops, and you have to know your rig, keep attention to turning radius, and don't be afraid... it will come with time.
