Once in a while we find a product or service that we feel is worthy of recommending to our friends and family. We won’t recommend anything we don’t use ourselves, whether it be an item or a company providing a service. We feel the following companies have products or services that are worthy of mentioning and some, if not all, have agreed to compensate us for recommending them.

Ever wonder how the long haul trucks can afford to purchase their fuel at large truck stops? Do you ever get tired of trying to fit your big rig into a small fueling station to save yourself 30 cents or more per gallon? We have the solution! The TSD Logistics card is a debit card that you can use at most major truck stops throughout America. TSD has a fleet discount at the truck stops (Loves, Flying J and Travel America) and passes that fleet discount savings on to you.
IT IS SIMPLE TO USE
They issue you an EFS card.
Pull into the truck line in the back of the store.
Insert your EFS card into the fuel pump.
A prompt will ask for specific information that verifies you as the owner. You enter the correct information and pump your diesel.
The next day the money is drafted from your bank account and you receive an email showing you the details of the transaction and their fees.
Their fee is 10% of the savings per gallon. So if the retail cost is $3.00 per gallon and their cost is $2.50 per gallon, your fee will be 5 cents per gallon.
If they can’t save you money, you owe them nothing!
There are no long-term contracts to sign and no hidden fees. If you choose to not use the program any longer, simply don’t use the card.

Ever wonder how full time RVers get their mail while traveling on the road? Most of us use a “mail forwarding” service and we use Americas Mailbox.
Not only can you get your mail forwarded on your time schedule and no matter where you are, but Americas Mailbox can handle other full timers headaches such as vehicle registrations and answer questions regarding changing your domicile.

OUR APPS AND PROGRAMS
We use a variety of phone apps and computer programs for trip planning, navigation and reference information. Listed below are some very useful items that we use.
RV Parky is an RV Park directory built by a full time RV’er with the help of the RV community to help fellow RV’ers on the road. Here you can find information, images, and reviews for the most complete collection of RV Parks and campgrounds in the United States and Canada as well as trip planning. It is also available in a phone app.
Because we are such a big rig we use this app to find fuel stations as well as check fuel prices along our route.
Trucker Path is America’s most popular app for truckers. Thousands of truckers all over the country use the app to find the closest truck stop, available parking, weigh station information, fuel pricing and truck optimized routing.
BIG RIG AND RV RESOURCES
We’re often asked where to find information about converting to a large truck tow rig or how we get information about big-rig RVing. Here is a list of websites, forums and RV communities that we use.
Whether you own a class-A motorhome, a compact travel trailer, or anything in between, your RV is a sophisticated piece of equipment. Its systems and the way you operate your RV are quite different from what you’re used to in a “sticks-and-bricks” home. Escapees leads the industry in educating RVers—from hands-on programs to a wealth of articles, blogs and discussion forums—to help you be confident and safe on the road.
They also have some great big-rig information:
The purpose of FMCA is to organize social activities, exchange RV information, and supply benefits made possible, in part, by collective purchasing. The interest of the Association also extends into the area of political and legislative action. FMCA supports recreation programs and the legal rights of RV owners.
FMCA takes pride in the merit of its many membership benefits, which include a mail forwarding service, an emergency medical evacuation program, international conventions, chapter and area rallies, and a free subscription to Family RVing magazine
One of the greatest benefits of FMCA membership is the opportunity it provides for enjoying the fellowship of friends from all over the country who share a common interest, RVing. The Association is rich in the tradition of FMCA members extending hands of genuine friendship to one another.
