When spending the night at Flying J what are the rules?
Are there overnight locations for RVs away from the trucks?
Can you open slides?
Does T/A Travel America allow spending the night?
What other truckstops allow spending the night?

Usually ANY truckstop will allow you to park overnight. And NO...you cant run any slides out and of course dont setup the grill and such....*S*

Flying J has a seperate RV parking area..usually small...but I pull into a space in the "semi" area where I have plenty of maneuvering room.

I'd really want to pull out the slide simply because I can't turn on the heat unless it's out. BBuuurrrrrr!!! I'm sure some people must do this? I can understand about the grill, ect....

I look at these places as a safe haven to pull into and get some sleep if you can't find a campground. If the blankets aren't enough to keep you warm with your slides in, have you considered one of those heaters that sit on top of a propane bottle? Sit one of those babies in the RV and your problems are solved.

Sure would be sad for another weary traveller to back in next to you and not see your slide out. That would just ruin a good nights sleep!

Chinook9, All these places have websites showing their policies, locations, fuel prices, etc. Now may be a good time to go out and bookmark a few and set up your "camping" folder.

Here is a link to a website that has all your needs in one convenient spot.

STARCHMILL ---You should not extend your slideout for an overnight stay at the "FJ's . Its just that simple. I don't understand why some of you don't get it!!!!!!If you want the comforts of a CG then find one and pay the "PIPER" And by the way take those dogs for a walk somewhere that others don't have to step in their "CRAP" THE CARROTMAN

Sorry we have to open the slide about a foot to get to the bathroom and back of the trailer. I don't see anything wrong with doing that. Usually we are just there to sleep and fuel up and not to camp.

Just out of curiosity who has decided that you can't open them all the way?? I have never seen anything posted at a Flying J or any other place that prohibited it. Or is this just another 'rule' that someone made up and telss eevryone else?

I try to park next to the curb, that way I can run the bedroom slide out and at least be able to walk around in there. The slide goes out over the curb so I don't think it hurts anything.

But now that we have the tractor with the sleeper, unless we have guests with us we will just sleep in the truck and if its cold let it idle.
