Sorry, I can't keep my fingers silent any more! This responses on this post are the reason why I quit posting completely on these forums. No one here has truly answered the OP's question. Everyone is side tracked, bashing the OP with WalMart parking etiquite.

Did anyone even bother to read her question? It started out:

"If we stop for a night at say Walmart"...

In other words, If we stop for at night at say (for example) Walmart.... what about my slides if I'm parked on an unlevel suface. Her question has nothing to do with WalMart. But no, everyone jumps on WalMart overnight parking.

Sheesh!

I sent the OP a PM and explained the possible repercussions if extending the slide outs on an unlevel plain.

OK, so bash ME again, and again and again. I'll post again in a few months!



I am so glad you are back! I sent you a pm when you left. Thank you for giving a true answer to the post! I firmly believe that between Dutchmensport and Old Biscuit anything can be resolved or fixed.

These match the "Code of Conduct" published by Escapees (which is agreed upon by quite a few RVing organizations)...
Where in the code of conduct did it say putting slides out was fine?

I keep mine in so as not to appear like I'm camping. I think it's wrong to put your slides out. It's likely to draw negative criticism and could lead to "overnighting" being banned. Your opinion may vary.

Is the Escapees code of conduct somehow a binding code of conduct or official policy where Walmart or anyone else is concerned? Are the Escapees a major stockholder or on the board of directors? Do they have a vote? I don't see where its applicable one way or the other what a few RV organizations say?

No dog in the hunt, I prefer woods to asphalt lots and do not even like asphalt or concrete pads in a campground, I would rather have dirt and leaves or grass under some 120' Oak trees given a choice. Anyway I think you'll find that over the next 5 years the overnight parking at Walmart will become more and more limited if not outright prohibited with the "Town Center" plan Walmart is implementing takes off, as they simply will not have the room for RV's and trucks. Most likely they'll put an end to it, and make it a corporate wide policy instead of dealing with the BS individually when they have leased spaces out in the middle of the campground leased to others. Time will tell.

Unhooking and using slides at a Walmart is generally poor form.

OP never said they were going to unhook.
