Well - I did some research on Friday. The person (or should I say "low life") that dumped his black tank in the Unicoi,Tn. Wal Mart lot last fall pleaded "GUILTY" in Unicoi General Sessions Court last Oct. His fine was $50.00 + court costs-(about $140) plus Clean up costs of $250.00 . He probably should have used a Flying J for the $5.00 fee.Yesterday morning a 5th wheel was parked on the far side of the same lot. One slide was out but over the grass. I could assume Wal mart has no ill feelings about their lot use. As I've posted; I'll use their lot ONLY after ASKING. It's the only correct way to go.

Isn't it ok to dump the black tank water down a catch basin?

Nope too.
The catch basin empties into the storm drains and then into running water-such as creeks and rivers. This water doesn't need to be treated.
Black water must go into the sewer system-be then treated and finally into the water system with all the impurities removed

I know this for a fact: The walmarts in Ormond fla., the city owns the parking lots and they are who patrol them. My point is, if you are in the walmart parking lot down there for very long or without the permission of the city (local police officer), walmart will get a ticket and fine for it.

In the Port Orange / Daytona areas which are very close to Ormond there are city ordinances against overnight parking anywhere except a campground. The police will ask the rvs to leave ( usually when you are sleeping) and or issue tickets to the " Rver"

Pulled into walmart late last night in Wenatchee Wa. Woke up this morning and went outside to discover that they have provided a picnic area complete with tables on the east end of the parking lot. Evidently they want our business. Guess we'll go in and get groceries.
Walmart has some pretty smart people who figured out that if they let us stay overnight we will do some PR work for them and spend in their stores.
Thanks Wal-Mart

We have stayed at Wal-mart from the West Coast to the East Coast, north & south and have had restful, comfortable nights without ever having to put out an awning, grill, or anything to make it look like we are homesteading.
We DO ask the manager, we DO our shopping, and we always try to park near a curb (drivers side) where we can put out the bedroom slide to be more comfortable. The Genset is really quiet and we have had the occasion to run it all night.
We do not stay in Rest Areas because of the truck traffic and the reefers running all night. I think that some of those drivers need to have a place where they can pull off and get some rest before hitting the highway again so my choice is to let them have the rest areas.
Here's a little hint for you folks traveling in the South East. We have found great accomodations at many Cracker Barrels. Dinner before bedtime, breakfast when we get up, and someone else does the dishes while we are on our way to our next destination. Good locations & good security. We usually call ahead or ask the manager when we stop for dinner. We have never been turned down.
