Traveling With RV-Friendly Apps

I travel full-time in my RV 365 days a year and occasionally I need apps to help me get to my destination. Some apps help me find fuel, and sometimes I need to wash the RV ( rarely, but it has happened). I need roadside assistance and, of course, finding a Good Sam Park in which to stay. I have settled on three apps that I like and always use. These are available for Apple and Android smart phones and tablets.
