Some people can not read simple signs like "Stop" "No Parking" "No Entry" etc. what would others do with instruction signs?

As far as some warranties go that I read about here on some very expensive equipment I think some have already done away with the written warranty at least from the stand point of standing behind them

Not really.

You miss the point. The written word puts you in a stronger position.

You park and do something wrong and ignore reading the sign. I point to the sign that has been put in a spot(s) where you have to be blind not to see it and I tell you you have to leave. you argue, I shrug my shoulders, walk away and call the cops. A lot easier than standing out there fighting with you.

Of course they can put up those equally expensive signs "No overnight parking" ....then what do they do when someone parks anyway? You tell them to leave and if need to...call the cops.

Much easier, and safer, to let the cops do the dirty work.

OH! by the way if you do stop by Wal Mart for a Rest, then just rest and get the Heck out of there so some one else will have a place to Rest!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

By the way I'll be using Wal Mart later this Summer so Move Over!
Yeah, they could have been broke down, for just that night, sorry I assumed the wrong thing.

Check with the WM manager on duty, buy your groceries there, don't grill outside or sit out drinking beer...slides and jacks are okay...and it will be fine.

Walmart lot, Bend Oregon, half a dozen "older TT's" bunched together, awings not just out but also "staked" to the asphalt with steel spikes, grills set up no tow vehicle in sight, trash everywhere, beer and wine bottles tossed into the lot and closest grassy areas. Dog feces everywhere. Not just overnight, they were there for 5 days before they finally were forced to leave or get towed...
Finally some clarification thank you. You had everyone thinking you were going to pound there doors down if they put a slide out 6 inches This is why it is important to be specific about your complaints.

On the subject of the travel trailers, are you sure they were not vendors or construction workers or people affiliated with Walmart? You didn't mention that you witnessed these half dozen trailers with awnings staked to the pavement so is this second hand info?

No one there on the 4 or 5 times I went to buy supplies for stay at my son's place over 7 days. The manager had no idea who these folks were but was "reluctant" to cause grief due to community relations and concerns as they had been under renovation for over a year and the public was "aggravated enough" by that.
I'm not saying anything about the truth or lack thereof in the statement above. But the outdoor barbecue display at the Crestview Walmart is on the sidewalk in front of the building. The paved area is a fire lane. There is no way that vehicle could have stayed parked there for a week without being towed. I just came back from Walmart tonight, there were five rigs there, parked in the far end of the lot, not bothering anyone. That's the way things usually are there. Perhaps you are thinking of someplace else.

The renovation at the Crestview Walmart took five months, not a year. The renovation crew lived on site in RVs.

If I were to see something I thought was wrong with the parking situation I felt any perceived need to take action about it that action would end with notifying Walmart staff the rest is up to them. Now if the situation was an assault or murder in progress that would call for a different reaction.

The simple truth in the matter is if you as an individual and a non employee thought I was doing something wrong because my slides were out, jacks were down, I had a lawn chair by my front door and nothing else was wrong and you told me to leave you in deed would have to call the police and from years of experience I think you would be in for a rude awakening when you explained your situation to them.

Every one has their opinion as to what is right or wrong on the subject and for the most part I won't change yours and you won't change mine, but I like seeing/hearing all sides of the story.

absolutely agree!
The only thing i can see is how many people want to control what other people do, that is none of their business.

But isn't it?

How many things out there do you diagree with but never said anything about? Now, how many of those have been made law? How many of those laws effect you or a loved one?

How many laws do you see broken everyday? Do those actions effect your neighborhood/town? Is it hard to go outside your house at night? A certain part of town? Do you wish 'somebody' would 'do something' about it?

Is there a neighbor who like to collect 'stuff'? Is that 'stuff' visible? Does that 'stuff' effect your home price?

Just an FYI, many Walmarts that have a "No overnight parking" sign will still allow RV's to stay there. I am not sure why, but even when I have seen those signs I have gone in and asked the manager and they have allowed me to park in a designated area. The point is, to always ask before parking.

nope it isn`t. You are both guest at walmart. Neither one has been given permission to enforce their criteria on another. No one has been given permission to litter on someone else`s M/H.
Of the 86 pages here, there is very little agreement on what is/or is not acceptable behavior for staying overnight. Slides/ no slides
gen/ or not to gen/ awning, or no awning, you see the problem?
JohnRR said it best. Not in so many words, but mind your own business. When you are a guest at someones house, you don`t tell the guest what to do, or how to behave, its the host job period, unless you are directed by said host.

As far as the house, neighborhood scenario, i don`t even know where to begin, so i won`t.
