My local WM had a pretty nice selection of parts. They had the camco vent convers for $19 each which is a great deal from what I have seen.

I just bought a directory of all Walmart Stores from google for $6.95. It has a listing of over 4000, with indicators as to which ones allow and don't allow. They also have a web site on line. Search Walmart Atlas and I believe the web site tells you those that do not allow overnight parking.

I too have bought most of my RV supplies through amazon.com; they have a large selection at great prices and most of the items ship for free.

There are 3 Walmarts within a 30 mile radius in our area. The one with the smallest RV section in the store is a Super Walmart. The other two have downsized the section as other have noted. Te Kittery Trading Post in Maine has a small RV section which I check out whenever we are passing through. I contacted Bass Pro Shop to see if they had any plans on adding a RV section in their stores. They are looking into it. I do not remember an RV section in the Carbellas, but they did have a great RV parking area in the rear of the store in Maine.

There's a fairly new Walmart about 15 miles west of Colorado Springs, that was built partially to take pressure off one of the in-town stores as well as to serve the local community. It happens to be on a very heavily traveled highway into the mountains, and hoards of RVs pass it every weekend, so if any of their stores should have RV supplies you'd think it would be this one. And for that store, which seems to have had trouble in the stocking area from Day One, it's not a bad selection of the typical supplies, like drinking water hose, water pressure regulators, chemicals. But in the hitch area I've not found any heavy duty balls or ball mounts or pins, mostly for the lighter campers. And I'd feel safe in saying just about the only things made in the USA in that store, or any of them for that matter, are the help. Didn't Sam Walton pride himself on selling American made products, or is my memory fading?

The directory from Walmart Stores sounds brilliant to me and $6.95 is reasonable also. Thanks rog4kneer!

Yep and he also said RVers are the best night time security guards he could NEVER pay for....

CEKKK+, you are correct. I sometimes think that WallMart is a Chineese company.
