Another Sam's Club becomes unfriendly

Add another Sam's Club to the list of unfriendly to RV ones.
Murietta, California.
I have stayed there for a night passing through many times but on this last stop in the morning I noticed a brand new sign posted on the light post right next to where a truck camper & I were parked. I don't see where to post a photo but it has a outline of a semi truck on it with a red line through it and it says absolutely no semi trucks trailers or RV parking

Probably not anything to do with Sam's club. Usually it's the property owner or a city ordinance.

In Murietta, CA it's a city ordinance, Sams club has no control over.

Gulf Shores does the same thing. I think the RV parks complain to the city council

You can always discuss with the store manager. I have read here of other instances of NO RV signs that are placed but not enforced by the store. Of course, if enforcement is by the city police instead of Sam's Club security, it's not a good idea to stay.

There are three Walmart s in our area and each does not allow overnights per order of the towns they are in. There are no campgrounds in any of the towns, so I suspect that has little to do with the issue. And, town ordinances do apply to private property - try storing an RV at your home in a town that prohibits same.

Not saying I agree or disagree with any of this - just offering observations.

Our local City Council passed an ordinance banning over night parking at the request of the Police Department. No RV's parks involved. The law is selectively enforced depending on the circumstances. If the PD thinks criminal activity is occurring they have an ordinance to enforce.

Because city councils often change their parking regulations it's always a good idea to call ahead to make sure it will be okay to stay there. I do all the time, as I believe it is the courteous thing to do. Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel etc.

As a long time LEO, I would just park if its open and safe and you don't stay for long. Most cops are busy enough that they don't feel a need to harass law abiding RVers just parked for "a few hours to rest their eyes." Now there are some rookies or cops that should know better that don't. Generally a polite warning would be given. Just my opinion.

After reading this posting....and being new to RVing, is there a listing of specific towns/regions, where RV's are not welcomed, or where RV parking is just not safe to stay in? It's best not to stay where your not welcomed, and as one would presume, if your not welcomed, your not going to spend your $$ there either! Safety has to be one's #1 priority though, so knowing ahead of time where it is 'safe' to stay is important...to me at least!

There are several aps for iPhone (probably Android too) that may help. Allstays is the name of them. Look that up and there are a bunch. Some will give you boondocking or Walmart sites among others. Happy camping

Allstays is available for Android as well. Allstays ONP is probably the app you want in this case.

We use the RV Parks and Campgrounds app on both iPad/iPhone and Android. It is free and so far it hasn't steered us too far off track when it comes to places to camp. It lists WM, Sam's Clubs, Cracker Barrels and a whole host of other RV friendly places. If you tap on a WM for example it will tell you if overnighting is allowed or not. I travel a lot for a living and have been spot checking it along the way, so far it has been dead on.
