I've stayed in a couple of parks where there was no one to collect the money. Take one of the provided envelopes, write your site number on it (with one we had a reservation so the envelope already had the site number on it) and drop it in the box or slot in the door. Used to buy collard greens from a roadside stand the same way.
I try to avoid truck stops for overnighters. DW is a light sleeper and doesn't rest well in those locations. At most Flying Js the RV spots are close to the gas pumps so the traffic in and out with related noise gets pretty bad. The RV parking spots in many of the Js are not even close to level. That can be a problem when trying to get a few hours rest. I've noticed that at any of the new Walmarts they have designed the drives and parking areas so that it is very difficult to impossible to bring in a big RV. Too many narrow drives, trees, sharp turns and curbs. Some are also putting up height bars at 12 ft or less which eliminates us. Bottom line for us is that DW belives the logo on the door "Roughing it Smoothly" with emphasis on the Smoothly. That generally means in a well kept campground by 3 PM with full 50 amp hook-ups.
