The dedicated fuel lanes are nice and wide and situated where you can pull in and pull out with easy.
I should also mention, I use Google Earth when routing a trip. I look at fuel stops and campgrounds so I usually know the layout of things before I leave home. We all, at one time or another, have booked a campground based on the their photos, only to get their to discover with horror that the photos fell way short of your expectations. Google Earth is great for getting a birds eye view of things. After all RVing is supposed to be an easy laid back experience. The less surprises the better.
x2! I use google maps in sat mode to do the same thing Mickeystamper. I like to know the best way in and best way out before I even attemp some places. Obviously, truck stops are easy for RV 's if they have RV lanes. I use diesel so I just use the truck lanes. Easy, easy, easy and most times much faster than the RV lanes. I also am a Good SAMs premium member. Worth every extra penny for convenience and lack of added stress.
