I only camp at Wally World for a few expensive hours at a time. While my lovely wife is partaking of the bargains, I pranced over to the RV section and scored some TP as well as some Shell Rotella to feed to the CAT.
I must admit that for Holloween I bought a spectacular tiger print one piece bathing suit, from Wally Worlds Womans section, that I disguested the grandkids with. At least they aren't in therapy from Holloween a year ago when I wore my lime green Borat Bathing suit.

If you were to wear that while shopping at Walmart you could get your picture put in with the people of Walmart. Just let me know when you are going to be there so I can avoid it! LOL

Or better yet, just use the Wal mart bathroom. No need to buy TP, and your black tank doesn't get full. Then head over to Sam's, and have a free lunch of samples. Then go to the deli and aks for a glass of hot water and a few ketchup packs - yum, tomato soup. And get a a glass of ice water, some lemon packs and sugar. One cup in each hand. Ya got a balanced meal.

When the lot sweeper comes around at night, maybe you could ask him (her) to come in and sweep the RV for you. What the heck, you are on the lot and they are cleaners. It only makes sense.
I think we could green up Wal Mart if next spring, everybody would plant a few tomato seeds on the grassy strips along which we park. Then come July or Aug, your fellow campers would have fresh tomatoes. I'm just sayin'

Didn't they look at you funny when you did most of that?

FWI: Sam's has changed their Business Members' hours from 7-10 to 7-9 AM for the holidays. You still have to get there early to get the free breakfast treats and coffee.

I have been at several county/city council meetings where these type of bans are proposed and discussed. In each case the main proponents of the bans were LEOs. There are, according to their comments, serious issues in FL in the winter with people "living on the edge" in rvs that move from Wally docking to stealth camping in orange groves and neighborhoods, and then rotating to another WW. Illegal dumping, property crimes, as well as, illegal drug activity are always brought up as reasons leos do not want parking lot campers. Local residents complain about not being able to use busy parking lots because of all the trucks and rvs parked overnight.

But, everybody's right. It's probably those #@$%^&* greedy corporations trying to make money for their investors. We all know that's a horrible thing for them to do.

Rvers and truckers pull into parking lots when they are empty late at night so I highly doubt residents are complaining about parking lots being to busy to use overnight.

We did use the app on our trip home from Steinbring in Minnesota where we purchased our new Newmar. During the 1300 mile trip we stayed at two Walmart's and it worked really well for us
