I saw a MH with the west facing window awnings out. It was 115 that day. Is that considered common sense?

I hope it was not morning, it needs to face east in the morning...

Father worked the flight line for may years... he generally does not remove sweatshirt until around 80 degrees or so...
...but if he was parked at Walmart in AZ he might be OK.

Maybe it is just me, but I feel that if Walmart had certain rules that they wanted followed, they would post them on their website so it would be clear. That doesn't mean that I believe that I have the right to trash the place, just means that, in my opinion, I do not have the right to tell someone else how to conduct themselves on someone else's property.

It's not just you, I agree 100%. The 'Walmart Police' just love to tell others how to act and behave. Gives them a false sense of importance and self-worth, I guess.

Stopping for an overnight stay is not camping. Staying for days on end and setting up camp ,is another matter and could be construed as camping. Common sense should prevail but seems lost on some.

If Walmart could only start selling common sense, maybe the Walmart Police could buy some. It would give them a good reason to overnight there and see what it's all about.

When they built the parking lot they discovered an abandoned grave yard. Instead of moving it they enclosed it and built around it.

Leave it to Walmart to think of a theme park at their campground. What an excellent attraction to bring in campers. Talk about a Halloween destination park, this is it.

Putting awnings out and lawn chairs would appear to be going a step further than Walmart intends for providing a parking place for your RV. Not sure why people with otherwise common sense don't understand this. I have a suggestion for you, ask that responsible person just how far you should go while "parked" on their property, if that responsible person tells you, just do as you please then I guess you have a green light to ignore what otherwise would be common sense behavior. Just an observation from one who has "parked" overnight at many Walmarts and never felt the need to camp there.
I agree with cleaning up after your pet or child makes a mess on the grass, and also agree to try to limit grey water leaking from the tank. What I do not understand is why it's not acceptable to spread out my carpet, throw out a few lawn chairs under the awning, and fire up the BBQ. I would think Walmart would put up camping rules in their parking lot if they did not intend for campers to fully enjoy their facilities. My grandchildren would enjoy climbing the trees in the parking lot islands, but I don't let them do that as that's pushing the limits in my book.....

Better yet, put up the awnings, position yourself just right and get the reflection off the windows.

The 2000 Millennium edition had the Tour Master package in the Scenic Cruiser. It has been good to us. for over 10 years.

Every time I've done what you suggested, someone from the office comes down to my site and tells me to put my clothing on.
I wonder if any of the Walmart are sunbathing friendly?
