Love's is competitive and so is TA, but you have to get their card for the discounts.

Closes Pilot/flying j to me is about 40 cents higher for unleaded.
I use my bank card which gives me a 3 per cent kickback.

You might want to check that... most bank and credit cash back cards exclude truck stops from the rewards program.

Great of you to do that, but to be honest, better to get him acquainted with stopping and judging by himself. On longer trips, a traffic jam, or detour, can make fueling harder. Get him to look for the station he will fit under, put the height of the camper on the windshield or sun visor, and school him on taking spots he can get on and out of. Otherwise, you can be setting him up to fail on if conditions are less then ideal.

You are aware that Flying j fuel prices are higher than other stations!

Even if they are higher, if they have an easy in/out where you don’t clog up the parking lot, it’s worth an extra few bucks.

FWIW my opinion of FJ RV fueling stations is they are no easier than the regular pumps, and in many cases, more difficult. The typical FJ RV fueling station is designed to funnel the customer out and toward the store and also straight into a car parked at the store. I've actually had to wait at a fueling station until the "customer" at the store left, and then I was able to pull out. Entirely possible he will run into that same situation. I've seen many trailers being pulled thru the regular pumps as most FJ sites have large and roomy parking lots.

It is a common problem RVers have with no easy solution except to get better at handling the tow.

The Love's in Williams, AZ is exactly what Larry cad is talking about. Even with my shorter TT its difficult since those pumps shuttle you directly into their store.
