Thanks for all the advise. I'm sure once I start towing for a few seasons, and learn more about my TV, I'll start to relax. Being an aircraft crew chief in the AF taught me to expect the unexpected and to have plan A, B and C before taking off.

TOTALLY understand. Only been RV camping for a couple years and only local trips. We're going to Disney in November and doing planning on routes and fuel stops as well as overnight stops. To me thats part of the fun and experience. I don't fear not finding a fuel station, I fear getting into a small one and have to BACK OUT!!! I like RV PARKY app and Pilot/ Flying J web site for help. Have a great time!

When I towed a hybrid with a small pickup with a V6, that little truck worked hard and used a lot of gas from its small tank. One time I got gas and wasn't paying attention to what the bored teenage kid was doing, and he didn't fill it up all the way like I would have. By the time I noticed that we didn't have enough gas to get to our destination, it was too late to do any thing about it, and panic set in. In the end, we barely did have enough, but I vowed to never let ourselves get put into that situation again. From now on I always go to the self serve islands so I can control the amount of gas pumped. While owning that vehicle and towing with it, I also had a 5 gallon gas can bungee'd to the back of the trailer, just in case. We never needed it, but it gave us some peace of mind. Our truck now has some decent range to it, and we know where the gas stations are around our regular haunts.

Look. I would ask that all of you quit calling it OCD. The proper name for the disorder is CDO. It is the same as OCD, EXCEPT all of the letters are in order, the way they're supposed to be! LMAO!!!

Instead of OCD, you could just call it the 6 P's:

Prior
Proper
Planning
Prevents
Poor
Performance

you'll be on the east coast, so there is a lot of fuel stops, not like in North Dakota. I do not worry to much about finding fuel, I file up when I'm down to about 1/4 tank. When I am starting to get low, I start looking at options and will pull into the station that I easier to get out of. Getting out is more important then getting in.
