Pilot/Flying J, Loves and TA/Petco all have apps. ALL will let you search for the nearest ones and tell you WHAT is available at each one...which can vary quite a bit.
I'm just in the planning stages for an Interstate 40 cross country DASH and I have found flying J has plenty of FULL SCALE RV friendly spots along the way to keep me rested, refueled and rollin' . This PDF may help you if you are headed across as well.
I think it is easier than the apps for pre trip planning.

"Allstays Camp and RV" is another app that we find to be useful.

Since we now have the long,high 5er,i have rethought this problem and am going change out my in bed tool box for a slightly larger one that has a 40 transfer tank built in. I have a 100 gal transfer tank but its about 6" too wide and would interfere with the hitch,so am gonna have to bite the bullet on the 40 gal unit.

Have found most Husky gas stations in Canada were easy in and out when pulling the Windjammer (34'). Never had a problem at Flying J.

TT's are no problem at most stations. Just look ahead, enter slowly and plan your exit strategy before committing yourself.

Fuel Stop

Its frustrating to find a fuel stop when you need it. For the most part we use Pilot/flying j, they have an app which you can use to research the location as regards to the facalities they have at that location. Flying J is by far the best because they have RV fuel islands, the app shows the locations on your route. So just use the trip planing on the app, it will show the Pilot /flying j ,the location plus it will give you mileage from your starting point. Very usefull, on my Rand McNally GPS I can locate my next fuel stop, add to my route and not worry to much about still have to be concerned if there is enough room for you rig.

There is a free app called iExit for smart phones. I have it on my iPhone but have not had a chance to use it yet.

I have a 33 ft TT and it really all depends on the orientation of the pumps. If the pumps are perpendicular to the store you may not have a wide enough swing or you might be blocking the driveway. If you have pumps parallel to the store you generally have more room to maneuver.

Our trailer is about the same as yours, but we use diesel. I usually look for the best price. Sometimes I have to maneuver a little to get there, but it works out okay.
