I can see why no jacks, they could damage the pavement.
My guess is that it gives the perception of "camping" rather than just catching a few hours of badly needed rest for safety purposes. Just a perception thing as opposed to any real practical purpose for the "rule"... assuming the slides aren't a hazard to traffic.

Our coach also is pretty much unlivable with the slides in... something a newbie buyer doesn't think to look for.

One thing I should mention in Port Alberni is that there are no camp sites within city limits and the best place to park for a quick stay is our local WalMart. It's close to the majority of shopping places and it is right on both public transit routes.

I have only stayed once and it was on a lark and if there is a need to actually stay in one in the future I will surely do so and not feel I've inconvenienced anyone.

After this holiday weekend there should be plenty of WM stories. Like, "I bought a grill at WM and BBQ'ed in the lot."

I found myself on a tour bus Friday passing the Fairbanks AK Walmart and lost count at 22 rigs in the parking lot.

Man there were a lot of RV's up there, I plan on returning with mine someday.

I lived in Fairbanks, ak for 9 years from 1995-2004. During that time of rather cheap gas price my father drove up in 1997 Bounder, and got to town around June 18, 2004. We didn't have a walmart than but did have a large Fred meyers? On the corner of airport and pegar. He was able to fitin our house drive way and just plug into our power cord that we used for winter to keep our cars happy enough to start each morning.
He boon docked the whole way up from Virginia but I dont think that he had to worry about finding a walmart or CB, one other think I might say is that he could drive a full tank of gas with out stopping other than to YOU KNOW WHAT. Than fill up again and do it all over again. I'm. Sure when he travel at the speed limit or less he could drive +900 miles, he died last year and now I have that same Bounder, and after a little upgrade we plan to make that drive back to Alaska boondocks the most of the way, looking forward to joining the number one rv road ALAKAN HWY,
Sorry so long
