I believe it is for if you track your fuel, you can see it by clicking the edit button on one of your stops and look on the right side.

Apologies. When you highlight a Gas Stop where you plan to fill-up on your trip, and then click on the Pencil Icon, you now have the ability to just check the Top Off Fuel button to have RVTW automatically calculate the gallons of gas required to fill your tank rather than having to do the math yourself. Great little add for doing your fuel planning.

thanks for the clarification, I will check it out. RVTW doesn't like my fuel tank configuration as i have a 28 gal tank with a 40 gal aux.

Remember that this functionality is only for planning purposes, not actuals. Your estimated fuel used (in RVTW) will not match your actual fuel upload unless you are extremely lucky, at which point I'd buy some lottery tickets. So, when you are planning out your stops, 68 gal will be your full tank and you'll just have to do the calc. to estimate your fuel upload if you don't regularly fill both at your gas stops. If you regularly top off both, use the Top Off button.

Rereading this, I've made my reply more confusing than helpful, so I'll try 1 more time. To start, the Fuel Used function is for planning, not tracking, in order to advise you where to anticipate your next gas stop should occur on your chosen route.

RVTW Definitions:
Fuel Capacity: The total gallons of fuel you can carry in your truck or RV. In your case, 68 gal. (20 gal. tank + 48 gal. aux).
Reserve: The # of gallons remaining in your tank(s) that you set as the trigger for RVTW to notify you that you should start looking for your next fuel stop.

RVTW Calculations:
1. Fuel Used: From Stop-to-Stop in your itinerary (whether Gas Stop or Other) RVTW calculates gas consumption in gallons based on miles traveled (within RVTW) divided by the Avg. MPG you establish in the RV Info tab of your Settings. RVTW calculates this fuel consumption for each and every Stop-to-Stop segment.
2. Fuel Remaining: The total amount of fuel, in gallons, in your tank(s) at your last fuel stop (this is normally your Fuel Capacity unless you choose to use a lesser number.), less the cumulative fuel used in each travel segment since that last fuel stop.

If you typically leave a gas stop with both your main and aux tanks full, you can just use the Top Off Fuel button to bring your gas to 68 gallons after your planned fuel stop. RVTW will then start the gas consumption calculation again to show you where the next fuel stop should be anticipated on your route. If you don't leave with both tanks full, then you'll have to do the fuel upload calculation yourself to establish what you typically leave a gas station with in terms of gallons of gas. RVTW will then use that number as the basis for your next notification to look for a gas stop.

Hopefully this is helpful.

I subscribed to RV Life Pro back in June/July of 2020. I recently found out about the Maintain my RV, and went to try to log in and it keeps telling me that my credentials are wrong. Do I have to re-subscribe to the package to get access to the Maintain my RV?

No, you don't need to re-subcribe but I can't help you here. Please send a ticket in to the Help Desk. Thanks
