We use the Pilot Flying J app (I think it is called My Pilot) on our smart phones when traveling with our TT. It allows you to search for nearby locations with RV lanes and RV dump stations. We have found that the ones that have RV dump stations tend to be the most "user friendly" for RVers with gas engines.

Failing that we just start looking for stations well before it is critical and are not afraid to get back on the road if the stations at a given exit do not look user friendly. We never pull into a station unless we can easily visualize our exit before we pull in.

Happy travels!

The "My Pilot" app is a great resource,,, have used it to help me plan our trip out to Rock Springs WY for the National High School Rodeo Finals in July.. with a little work at the google maps as it was stated in an earlier response to thread, I was able to choose only those Pilot's/Flying J that offered a RV lane...

thanks for all the help

We limit our day's drive to where I won't have to refuel except in the morning if at all possible. When we stop for the night, I exercise the dinghy by checking the surrounding areas for a worthy gas station. That's where I refuel the next morning. This also helps me avoid waiting in long lines at the pump - a very common occurrence at Costco's out here on the West Coast. If necessary I hook the car back onto the motorhome after fueling.

Costco is always my 1st choice as I have never found one that I couldn't get in and out of with the Toad attached. I also use my Costco AMEX and get 4% back on gas purchases.

Some non-company owned FJ travel centers are very old and small. They are operated quite differently too.
Some years ago I stopped at one in NW Indiana. I was driving my dually towing a 40' 5er. I had to back out of the RV lane. It was not a company-owned store.

Back to planning. We start looking around 1/2 tank looking for stations with the pump island parallel to the road. Rural areas do seem to be better as the curb nazi's seem to have invaded a lot of cities. Plenty of room if it was not for all the curbs to keep the cars in line. So far the only truck plaza we tried did not sell gas but did have room to get out. ;-)

We are finding it also pays to watch the time of day. Avoid peak fueling times for cars so there is less of a crowd factor.
