THOR #11130
Same here...just this weekend, and because the generator runs on back tank only, I was looking for diesel fuel close to where we were boondocking for 15 hours +/-. From "street view" I noticed the canopy of my chosen location was only 12 feet high. I stopped a couple exits sooner and fueled up. I always Google Map where we are going if it's off the interstate and sometimes will use street view to "cruise down the road" a little just to see what's there. RV specific GPS will help with bridges, etc., but will do nothing for canopies, series dips in driveways when entering fuel stations, etc. I've been a long range boater for years and trip planning should be done before ever hitting the road. Then, make sure you know where you're going before listening to the GPS. The 770 is a great tool and I love it but..."The Prudent Navigator Will Never Rely On A Single Source Of Navigation".
