RV etiquette when parking in a Walmart or similar business

I will point out just some things that come to mind to help our image among the 'civilians".
There are certain behaviors of RVer that may bot seem to bother anyone,but theres always someone who not going to like what an RVer does does,
It may be as simple as just being an RV.

If the supervisor or manager gets enough complaints ,even if they are just crybaby "nothing" complaints ,you can bet You or even other RVs will not be welcome in no time.

Some things i have learned that will keep you out of trouble.

it helps to take the most remote spot in the lot but still in clear view of the front of the store.

1-No hiding on the sides or back of the business because its quiet or shady.

2-Dont take shady spots where cars normally park.

3-Dont park where you will block someones view of the parking lots traffic ,like intersections which make it difficult for someone to see the traffic etc.

4-Dont put your slides out more than a foot if at all.

5-Do not pull your furniture ,pets ,kids, vollyball net,BBQ or ANYTHING that makes it look like youre relaxing or having a good time

There really are more things to watch out for,but Im sure with all of your inputs we'll come up with many.

There are times when you may get away with some of these "infractions"and other RV Parking no nos,but the less of them you do the better chance you and the rest of us will be left alone .

This list ,then,will be for those of you/us that cant think of all of them.
