Get permission to park there. If the answer is no, park someplace else. or Offer him $50/month to park there.

If I parked somewhere and had to leave,my truck I would take a,note on the door saying I received permission from the owner/manager to park there. And leave my number with the,manager.

Good idea. Never park in a business's Parking lot without permission, it is private property. I mean, I have to be honest, if I was completely exhausted I might risk it, but then I would not leave my truck and if someone came to knock at my door, I'd be apologetic and explain why I stopped there.

There's a Grange across the highway from my house that I sometimes park at. First I check the event calendar online to make sure nothing will be going on while I'm there. Then I just leave a sticky note on the window (writing on the back side and sticking it to the inside so the wind can't get to it) that says I live down the road, gives my expected departure date/time and asks any concerned parties to call my cell phone if there's any problems. Never had any calls.
