Another app is Internet Exits Guide. It tells what is at each exit.

Thanks for all the info, we have had a trailer for over 10 yrs but it was 7 ft shorter than our new one. We never got to go long distances from home, never had enough time off. In 16 months I can retire and I want to see other places and maybe have a warm winter instead of 6 ft snow banks.

Just added TruckerPath to my IPad. Good app, will go well with my GPS and route planning.

I use the Gas Buddy, generally look for Flying J or Love's. Gave up on Pilot, generally small lots and hard to maneuver. Some of the Gas Buddy locations have pics of the stations so you can get an idea of the size.

Happy Trails, Forrest

I think the key to happiness is mindset. Being a trucker, when I'm in the big truck I wouldn't even think of pulling into the typical gas station. I just know I need more room. I look for truck stops. I particularly like the ones that are not one of the big five but I take what I can get. If I need to overnight, I would prefer to find a smaller location than to fight for a parking space at a TA or FJ. Once you hook onto that RV, it is important to get a trucker mindset. You aren't in the Porsche anymore, Dorothy! Plan ahead for fuel, drinks, food and bathroom breaks. I just downloaded trucker path and it looks like a great app. Team up gas buddy and trucker path and I think you've got a winning combination.

To me, life is too short to worry about having to use an app to get gas. When we need gas, we put into the nearest station and fill up. Has worked pretty good for me since around 1956.

But you're old. Us kids are used to apps and it isn't any big deal.

Do you have to use an app to take a ?
We were taught to think for ourselves.
