Flying J is the only one that has the dedicated RV lanes unless they specifically state otherwise. So far as I've seen, the truck lanes only offer diesel and DEF, both on the driver side. They could have a gas lane, just not sure.

Stick to the truck stops when towing. I might pay more possibly, but it avoids the idiots that will crash into you like said above. We mostly have hit the j's as they seem to be spaced according to our fuel needs.

Haven't been in other states in the region but at least I see it all the time in SC.
some in NC have 2 prices but typically advertise both. This is true with the truck stops near me.

We haven't had the nerve yet to pull in to the truck entrance only to find out it would do us no good.

Thanks for this awesome forum of experts. We are new TT owners (since August), and searching/researching in this forum has been like reading the Bible for rving!!

true truck lanes are diesel only. I have only been in the RV lane once. They had a sign hanging to mark it rv lane. My fiver is tall enough that it scraped my AC. I didn't think about the height as it was the same pavilion the trucks used, I admittedly didn't account for a lower sign vs 13'6" fiver.

Autocorrect mistakes fixed. Sorry.

My old rig was 70' . 36' MH pulling a 34' car trailer. Some times had to back out of places that had poor access. Good news was it was Diesel and could force nozzle in from the truck pumps. Then it was aan esy in, easy out.

I use Pilot/Flying J/Loves and always use the outside pumps and keep a good distance out from them..Sometimes I can just reach the truck...Our unit is a silverado ex cab and a 34' 5er.......never seem to have a major problem...You must be choosy and careful... Height of canopy is my major concern!!!!!
