Campground courtesy

I know there are unwritten common courtesy rules for campgrounds/rv parks such as don't walk thru sites, don't let your dog crap in the neighbors site, but here's one that should be written down, if your horn honks when locking/unlocking the doors please shut it off & if you must have it honk please DON'T mess with the locks at 5:30am, especially if your parked directly at some one else's bedroom slide, & please just unlock it ONCE not 2-3 times. I know some of you still work & have to be up at 5:30, but I don't need to be & yesterday was about the 4th time this has happened the last couple months. PLEASE TURN YOUR HORN OFF!!

Heck I would be happy if they would just start their truck or MH and leave, not let it idle there at 5:30 in the morning for 30 minutes to get it up to temperature. The BIGGEST turn off for me in a campground environment is the feeling I'm parked at a truck stop or rest stop with all the diesels running.

And while we are on the subject - muffler those POS Dodge Cummins - there is nothing cool about sounding like Big Foot farting as you drive through the campground.

PS I'm not sure you can turn the horn off on all vehicles.

You forgot the PPL that start their loud diesel truck and let it sit and warm up for 15mins before they leave every morning. Then instead of creeping away from the trailer give it lots of gas to make it even louder. Oh and let us not forget to turn the Bass up real loud so we can listen to it THUMP while the truck warms up.


But one good thing about being in the RV if you don't like your Neighbors you can always move.

I don't the neighbors we've had lately are going to work as they left the park, just wondering where they are headed that they have to leave at 5:30-6am, hell it ain't daylight for 2 more hours.

Brad, don't forget them rattling Ford's idling also, they are almost as bad as the Dodges.

The old 7.3s were terrible, and the 6.0 when cold, but the new ones hardly make any noise.

Regardless, the donkey dork Dodges that make that sound were done that way on purpose and the owner actually paid money to make them that way. Beyond me what the attraction is to that sound. I'd rather listen to the old GMC 454 Camper Special with turbo mufflers and headers fire up in the morning! That was a sound to be proud of!

My 6.4 is not to loud. IF I have to go somewhere early in the morning I start it and idle away quickly from the camp site to somewhere that I can let it warm up with out disturbing my neighbors. But I was also taught to take off your hat when you enter a building. Now days PPL don't care. Should see there eyes when I ask for a toll when they try to cut through our campsite. After all I paid for the spot.

Ya my 6.4 was super quiet - I could hardly believe the transition from my 6.0, especially in the cold.
