Patience is required. Old saying, God please grant me patience, I need it NOW!
When time for fuel, pay attention to the amount of fuel needed 12gal or so for 1/2 tank and so on. Handle clicks off often before filling. Guess getting used to it is part of the experience, very few delays in filling now.
In Yuma at the Sam's Club there was a dip at the pump in one of the lanes, always had trouble filling there. Moved a bit, out of the dip, no trouble.

Maybe bring 6-inches of scrap 2x6 and roll the driver's side tire up onto it before a fill up.

Ordered Feb 2018, arrived Sept 2018. 159-inch WB regular length, high top, 3.6L gas, both driver's and passenger-side sliding doors. Planning to lightly camper-ize it for spontaneous and free-spirited travel!
