No big deal, no inconvenience, and it saves propane for us.
I had someone tell me that kind of thing once....that my water heater was kinda loud and did I know there was an adjustment to limit the air intake, which he was pretty sure is what was causing the roar. Sure enough, I went to where he pointed....with the index finger....and saw on the water heater where there was a metal slider pipe to adjust the air intake. I was happy myself to tone down the roar as well. Just sayin'.

Don't nobody get too serious now. I just quit my job so I could spend more time following this thread.

If this falls through, anticipate future problems overnighting at WM. Rumored that WM is negotiating with Seal Team 6 Ret. for Extreme Removal Measures!
I've heard that they're using the 101st as back up.

Durango, Colorado has a city ordinance against overnight parking in the Walmart parking lot there but when we left our CG we noticed three RVer's that were apparently there overnight. Oh Well.

We were at the Walmart in Sterling, CO along with three other RVer's,.... a pleasant evening.

PM me for instructions as to where to mail registration fee.
My Nigerian Banker has asked me to have you PM your account info so he can have the funds transferred from his great uncle the Finance Minister directly from the proceeds of his settlement attorney.
Waiting on your most humble response.

WalMart parking threads should be banned from all forums . . . it's a waste of electrons and I heard a rumor that global warming is gonna produce of shortage of electrons so we need to preserve them for discussions on tire pressure and mileage and diesel vs gas!

Bad enough you don't want us parking there, now you don't even want us talk about it.

Shame I wasn't there. I would've done some of my famous BBG Baby Back Ribs. Now you'll probably never know.
