Looking forward to everyone's input. Wireman
W the experience you have with a larger MH, you will have no trouble with a diesel and smaller TT. Fueling while towing is pretty painless as long as you plan where you stop. From an interstate that starts with watching the exit signs for multi stations at an upcoming exit. Befor entering a station, observe the layout and don't use a station with pump lanes set at 90 degrees to the station. Only use lanes that run perpendictular to the road. Diesel will be displayed on the signage if they sell it. Diesel is typically available on the lane farthest from the station. A little planning can eliminate 99% of the challenge. Don't undersell yourself. Afterall a Jeep and a small TT s/b well within your skill set.
On occasion I use the truck lanes usually off to the side or rear of a station. If they don't accept reg cr cards at the truck pumps, I just move on thru. I will not go inside and leave a card.
Other fueling advice is Don't run to fumes and then stop in a panic. Fuel when the gauge is between 1/4 and 1/2. Allows you to pick the best station and not have to deal with the first one you come to. 2nd carry a 3-5 gal fuel can to stretch range in an emergency [just having it will save worry and I have never had to use it]. Don't panic and don't pull in to a lot without first studying the layout. Don't drive into a problem situation.
This is not rocket science.
