RVs, don't be an idiot at truckstops

When fueling on the Truck side of the truckstop (diesel pumps), once you have fueled, pull forward off the island. That lets the truck behind you pull up and fuel while you go inside and pay. If you want food or a shower or for all the hippies in your rig need to wander around, go park. Park nicely, one space only. Truckstops are crowded, and the drivers essentially live there, parking spots are at a premium. For truckers, time is money, you're on their turf, don't be the asshat who gums up the whole place.

And for the love of dust, do not be this guy.

Also - pay attention to the god damn fuel pump numbers.
Truck fuel stations generally have a pump one one side and a “satellite” pump with the same number on the other side of each lane.
That’s so trucks can fuel either or both side tanks.

Don’t be that fucktard who takes the pump that has the satellite in the other lane. That fucks up everyone else.
