This may be a silly question and forgive me if it's been asked and answered before. Do you always have to go inside to pay at truck stops? Being my first diesel (my other RV's were gas MH's) I find it easier just to use truck stops instead of trying to navigate a regular gas station pulling the FW. But the card reader obviously doesn't work for non-commercial drivers. I've looked at memberships and reward cards but it still seems like these only offer a discount but you still have to go in and pay. Not a huge deal, but is there a way for non commercial drivers to just pay at the pump? And what other benefits are there for a card with Flying J, Pilot etc? Is it worth having a card with all of them?

No , you have to join Pacific Pride to get a fuel card, then you just use your fuel card. Go on line to get a list and map of all the Pacific Pride stations.

I've never seen or heard of Pacific pride and I can't get their map to work.

I always see Pilot and Flying J, are they affiliated with their network?

So I found the Pilot RV plus program through Good Sam. Discounts on fuel at Pilot and Flying J and it seems you can pay at the pump.

Anyone else have this?

Pilot Flying J have a RV card. It is thru Good Sam Club. There is a few cents per gallon discount. It is used just like a credit card but is paid in full each month.

Forget the darn card and use your Costco Visa or something that gives you good points on fuel.

Pull up look at pump number. Send spouse inside and she will tell them the dollar amount not to exceed and your pump number. They will turn on your pump. she will do her thing, women love to shop.

Once you are done call her let it ring twice and hangup, This will let her know to pay. You will pull forward at that time wait for her. If you need DEF have her say so and dollar amount.

Yes, I am starting to think there isn't much to be gained by jumping through hoops and paying an annual membership fee just to pay at the pump. I get great points back on my Discover and only takes a minute to send the wife or son in to get the pump started. At the Pilot I used during last week's trip, I only had to go in once. She said whatever was not used from being authorized would just be credited back so no need to come back inside. Easy.

Paying for fuel----
I agree, having to go inside to the store to get the pump turned on and then having to go back to pay is a pain in the rear end[emoticon] Not my choice.
