Slides out at Rest Stops

At Interstate rest stops, can we put a slide out? I checked with the local guard, and she didn't have a clue. Thanks, John

I would say it is OK if I did not see a sign posted otherwise. After saying this I would be careful where I parked and how visible my slide is when extended. I would hate to have a truck clip my slide pulling in.

If you're parked where the slide is over some grass and doesn't impede walk ways, why not. But, if you're parked typicly in side by side lanes, your taking a big chance of a trucker or another RV 'reforming' it's shape. Personally, I wouldn't do it for any length of time...just maybe to get to the back bathroom. In places that allow overnighting and there's no possiblity of someone hitting the slide...sure.

If parked on an end or otherwise where no chance of getting it hit, sure.

Its probably 1 in a 1000 but it would be a really bad place to find out your slide was stuck in the open position--"sleep tight" [slides in].....just saying

No worse than any other place I would think.

We leave our slides in unless I can extend one over a grass area, out of traffic right of way & not impeding foot traffic. Actually all areas of our coach can be easily accessed without deploying, so we usually see no reason to extend them.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Think not--plenty of time to sort things out at the campground--less inviting to be stranded in a rest stop......

As usual common sense prevails... just make sure that you're out of the way and not causing any problems and it's unlikely anyone would mind.

I've done research on several state rest area policies and most don't even let truck drivers "overnight" at rest areas, so setting up camp in a MH is really pressing your luck.

States permitting overnight parking at Rest Stops. In the others in general you won't get rousted but some states (like Florida) are known for being picky about it.
