I carefully plan it so I don't even have to refuel with the trailer attached
I understand what you are saying!
As you probably noticed where I've posted we just got back from FLA
about a week ago, however, our total round trip was about 2200 miles.
We were at one gas station, (which I had to visit them quite often) and I had a near miss.
It really pays to be extra cautious when pulling through at the pumps.
I was turning to pull up to a pump and when I looked over my left shoulder I came to a sudden stop. The trailer didn't have enough room.
I was cutting in a little too close and almost hit one of the metal guards at the end of a pump with the trailer. When I stopped I was about 4-5 inches from it. I breathed a sigh of relief then backed up and corrected for it.
I know after traveling for several hours you can become complacent with your trailer and forget to watch for such things. I've also noticed most of them are not designed for RV'S
. The pumps are positioned such that when you pull in you face the store front and there would be a sharp turn when entering or leaving.
I've started watching for stations which will accommodate RV'S a lot more and patronize them.
It just makes life a little easier!
