Please have some respect for others, I squeezed inches from one and barely was able to get fuel. While pumping I went to the manager to explain. He was very upset and immediately had a worker wake them up and move. It's idiots like this that could get this courtesy taken away from the rest of us.
Yup, the idiots probably saw 1 RV there and thought, that must be the spot.

I'v seen that happen when the lines are worn off or in one case they painted new lines crossing the old ones. What a mess.

I once saw a trucker roust an RVer in a Walmart, because he couldn't squeeze by to get to the loading dock.

I would have chalked it up to one of them dumb things and let them sleep.

Some things to consider, Though I use Flyin-J cause they are usually just off the Freeway and easy to get into/out of and back on the road. And I've never had a problem finding parking at ;'em.. I also believe that if I'm going to take advantage of the "Free" parking I should give 'em some custom.. Like Dinner and breakfast at one of the eateries inside the store.

So, Dinner for two, Usually around 25-35 dollars V/s Dinner in your own kitchen (Perhaps 5-10 for two) and Brakfast (about half the price in both places) is around 50 bucks v/s perhaps 15 tops. and if you need to empty ye-old Tank, another 5-10 bucks....

Campground is less expensive.. Proved it one time when the local truck stop (not a "J") did not look safe so we hit the 25 a night campground about half a mile away.. Full hook up,, Dumped, Filled, (Water) Showered, electric.... And spent less than we would have on dinenr alone at the truck stop.

I patronize Flying J by buying gas, thats it.

They give me a discount and free overnight stay.

Much cheaper than any campground.

We have stopped at Flying J's but I prefer Walmart.

The last Flying J we stayed at in Oklahoma was pretty full by 8PM, we pulled off to the side as best we could. It was pretty loud with the trucks coming in and out.

We also stay at Sam's Club, Cabela's (which usually have dumps and fresh water fill), Cracker Barrel, and Casino's.

Only one was completely full during all our years of RVing. That one was only 50 miles from our house, but I was tired of driving. Every RV parking spot had two, new, bob-tail semi tractors, and others were parked in car spaces. I never inquired about that, just re-fueled, ate dinner, and drove on home.

Some FlyingJs have handicapped truck parking. I asked if I could park my mh there and use our handicapped placard (DW is disabled). They told me yes I could. There was less noise there than with the trucks.

We don't have any trouble with noises there all around us. We park in truck stops usually behind the cab and refers so we don't hear much.
