Is there a program to show easy in/out gas stations?

I've never found one...we look for truck stops or stations with diesel (even though ours burns gas like yours) figuring if a large truck can fit in, we can. It usually works, but once in Port Jervis, NY we had to back out onto a busy highway after fueling up....yikes! My wife had to follow my hand gestures carefully and ignore those of passing motorists.

It's my understanding that the GPS unit from Good Sam has data like that. It also tells which bridges are too low, etc. I am seriously considering one myself.

I don't believe the prices $55 to $193 plus shipping :lol4
I got 1 last year at Camping World for the Northeast Rally as a door prize and paid $13.

I am on their mailing list and get a flyer each year under $25 including shipping :!: :!: :!:

We have an app on ou iPad "Truck&RV Fuel Stations". It was either free or negible cost. Very user friendly and I find myself using this instead of the iExit Guide to look for fuel stops.

Yesterday RV Trip Wizard added an expanded gas station system. The creator tries to focus on stations that would be convenient for RVs and his map now includes icons for the main brands (Pilot, etc). The program is good for plotting a trip and it allows as many stops as needed. The icons show the type of campground and the program calculates costs. It is slower to redraw but prints the route very well. The creator is instantly responsive...send him a note (new or changed campground) and he makes immediate changes. My only reservation is it is web based. It does not show road restrictions as Good Sam does.

The Allstays Camp & RV app is still one of the best for listing fuel, campgrounds, Walmarts, etc.

X2. I use the APP everytime we travel and know we are going to have to fuel up. Works great.

We use Allstays, and the Good SAMs web based planner. Also have the Pilot/Flying app on the iPhone, which works pretty well, but the Aux tank really helps us avoid fueling stops between campgrounds.

:D we ordered the Next Exit from Amazon also, paid $14.95 free S n H. Looks like it will be very helpful on our trips.
