Good iPhone App

Really good iPhone app Camp&RV by Allstays ($5.99 & worth it) Can provide info on RV parks, find gas, eats, stores and with selected filters locate low clearances better than GPS, Motor Carrier Atas or aitaonline.

Used on last trip & won't leave home without it in future.

Another is "Trailer Life Directory, called RV Park Finder by Good Sam. Best part is its free and free upgrades.

Another great app for iPhone is gasbuddy, and it's free as well. It'll list the nearest gas stations on their current prices.

It sure helps with the low clearance problem, just have to remember to set the filters. Another good one to look at is Passport America

I found another one that I like..RV Check. It has checklists that can be modified to the user. I thought it would help to keep the old routine going. I told the DW that I have loaded it on my phone, so if I can't remember...she will know.

I'm curious. How do these apps get the gas price information. Are these prices listed somewhere else on the internet. Just curious.

User installed prices.

A user drive by xyz store and sees gas at 2.99 then loggs into app and posts.

The AAA app has all the info you can use for gas/diesel $$, location of food, lodging, etc. FREE and very fast to load info. Prices are usually correct, plus you get map info to find any listed service. I use it a lot and have found diesel for 6 cents less just4 blocks from another station. Good to have info.

Has anyone found an App that lists Fuel Stations with steep access that your rig will get hung up on?
I seem to find the Fuel stops that have steep access ramps and have damaged two sets of levelling jacks. Some areas have very limited fuel stations to choose from and when you need fuel... you need fuel. It would be nice to know what fuel stations are Big Rig friendly both upper and lower clearance.

The gas buddy has feature that links to a photo of the station, provided the user has updated it with a picture of that station. Hope that helps you out .

The Pilot Flying J website shows fuel prices at most every station in their network.
