RE: Camping Lights

Read my original, why all night. The CA responses seem to prove the point, hold my beer and watch this $hit. All fun and games till the cops show up. See the blue line in my avatar?? There is a reason for it, idiots fed my family 25 years and paid for all my RV equipment. I still think lights all night are ignorant, annoying, and inconsiderate kind of like some people. Stay in your city & I'll stay in my country. Ha,, fair enough,, you do know the saying about Opinions,,and yours is Bigger than the rest! You stay in Mayberry and I will stay in my world! Ta ta now Ya All! I see you learned allot being a public servant,,guess I wore a different color set of glasses. I served the public and they were not considered Idiots,but if the shoe fits,, then the country you live in deserves you!! Just a question,, How many IDIOTS have you arrested or did what you did cause they had lights on all night?? Just cause you wore a piece of metal over your heart doesn't mean you have a heart!! Look in the mirror,, Be proud Brother!! Idiots,,, yeah that's special! Worked for a county of great people, the idiots that couldn't follow the law are the ones fed us. If it weren't for the criminals I wouldn't have had a job. Go play your California lights and please stay on the left coast you not a problem out here. k!

RE: Camping Lights

Amazing the leaps that people can make. Someone comes in saying they prefer a dark campground. Immediately they are pounced upon for being killjoys, and "crampers" whatever those are. Where did a desire for a non-Times Square environment, become a desire to kill all the bunnies and blind the kittens? It seems if you don't agree with someone, you are not just wrong, you're morally reprehensible. Some people prefer a darker RV park, and some don't. It doesn't really mean anything other than that. But if you feel the need to rationalize your behavior, by all means have at it. https://i.imgur.com/tgIC6IMl.jpg Should be dark enough over there!

RE: Camping Lights

In all fairness,, I try not to disturb others. I do light and decorate my camp site, But always on the Awning or "Curb" side. Thats the "Action" area! I expect the same from you! I understand that the "street" side or non awning side is my neighbors side, My lights should be blocked for the most part to them. Same as the neighbor on my awning side, yeah it will reflect off or your street side,but that's what window shades or blinds are for,Right? I have not come across a neighbor with an awning side on the opposite of that. And most 99% of the places we stay at,, the fire ring side is the awning side! I tell the kids that the "Off Side" is not a play side and to stay in the "action area" or ride your bikes out front and obey the same rules as you would at home! Now kids will be kids, they get loud as they play and I try to control that! TRESPASSING is forbidden and respect for ALL neighbors is a must. With that being said,,,my kids are now in their early Thirties and the youngest is 27. NEVER have I had an issue with MY kids, Matter of fact I have had people walking thru the camp and comment how well behaved my kids were, Also had a neighbor a few trailers down come by and ask me what I was smoking? I could tell he was concerned that it was wafting his way. So I showed him the Pork shoulder and I apologized, Asked him If he would like a sample,, He walked away with three pulled pork sammies home brewed bbq sauce and slaw for his wife and brother! Next day I moved the smoker to the front of the trailer to help move the smoke.. That only drew more folks wanting to know what was cooking! The dear wife (party planner) threw an impromptu "Pot Luck" get together that evening! Met some really really nice folks and ate some great food! had many comments on how "FUN" our campsite was! So it surprises me to hear of Crampers that have an issue with that! Not that I don't care, but isn't camping supposed to be a pleasant FUN experience? I treat is as an extension (in a different spot) of our back yard! Hell you ought to hear my back yard when the kids were younger and had all their friends over swimming in the pool,,BBQ,Smoker going, a couple of tables of food and snacks! Dogs running around swimming with the kids! Now we have the kids over, but it's much more subdued. The now older couple across the street have said a few times that she misses the sounds of the kids having so much fun! Why shouldn't that be the way at a camp site? And some (now a days) multi color led decoration lights going? Where are you Crampers camping? Sounds like a very nice,dark,cold Cemetery! good luck with that! I can tell you that we have some very fond fun memories of camping with the kids and we miss that. You all must sit around an reminisce about all the Horrible cramping trips you have been on,, were the good ones the ones that NO One else was there?? Cause thats fun and all, but I work with the public and enjoy people, Crampers or not,,thats why we go!

RE: Camping Lights

Some of you tight wads need to rename your hobby to Cramping! Why should i let your cold dark cramping seep onto my warm Festive site? If I want dark and cold I'd camp in a cemetery. But I choose to camp with others,, and like a box of chocolates,,,,you never know what your going to get! Here's news people,, aint changing my life style to match yours,,Get over it!Just gotta love how you prove our points! What points,, am I missing something? Or am I not in the secret squirrel club? Your camping and want to control what everyone else does to suit you? Call the cops if I am bothering you! I am camping and enjoying being outdoors away from work! I have an array of solar LED decorations and the cops are gonna take me away? No ones gotten burnt yet! Ha Ha,,Your camp site----"Hey get off of my lawn,,Shut up,, turn that light off,, Stop laughing,,stop the cooking smell,,Oh god you closed your door and I can hear it,, Keep all of those bicycles out of my way,,Don't talk when you play board games and for gods sake Stop Cheering when some one wins at Corn Hole"!! I Have Camped joyfully next to Crampers just like you,, I love it!! I actually sleep good at night and don't fret about the Yard lights on!! And you wanna know my attitude about that? Thats the way its supposed to be!! Are we not allowed to enjoy camping cause your a Cramper? I don't work out of a cubical.. I serve the public, Even all my side jobs Serve the public in more ways than some. So if I take all my Stuff, kids and dogs,firewood and beef and go camping,, Well I am going to be laughing allot and loudly! I am gonna have a large camp fire! I will smoke a Brisket or pork shoulder,,Drink allot of beer and whiskey, gonna go fishing, play allot of board games and Toss games,, like washer Toss or Corn hole, we will cheer and laugh,, kids will stay up way past their bed time,Dogs will bark, somebody will need to make a run to the store a few times, breakfasts will be busy,, some like scrambled some like dip eggs, but we will be outside and voices will travel, sure enough a day or two into it a relative will show up late and we will make room, hopefully they brought more firewood for the 24 hour fire going, who doesn't like Smores for breakfast? So for you Crampers,, If i park next to you,,Enjoy,,I got a pulled pork sammy or a Smores for you,,I Got a beer or a drink for you,, feel free to pet the dog,,he's cool. Bring a chair and play "move Away" as we stoke the nights camp fire! But for gods sake,, BREATH,, its all good! Chances of Me being in the same spot next year is GOOD!!

RE: Camping Lights

Why we always camp primitive and no lights on our RV outside when parked. I have a nice LED flashlight if I need to see. Personally, I believe those with all the lights on are scared of the bogeyman. Boogyman has no place in my camp site! We are Happy and camping,, we do not follow a food diet nor do we have a curfew! No booze is too much booze. When you pull into a campground and all the neighbors are within twenty feet of each other. The Boogyman aint comin to get you because of the noise,population and lights! Thats it in a nut shell! If I go to a Boondock spot to camp, and my lights bother you,,,Boondock further away cause sites are not assigned and your camper has wheels! We camp in the Desert a few times a year, we camp in open camp spaces on a huge beach also. Nothing assigned. If I get next to a rowdy bunch and I don't like it,,,Guess what?? My wheels are turning the next day or even within the hour! Where the heck do you Crampers cramp where you expect your twenty foot away neighbors to STOP enjoying themselves because you are a Cramper tight wad? Hell I can here conversations in the trailers/motor homes from the campers on both sides of me,,I don't blow a gasket, Its camping! You want a five star regulated camping experience?? Don't camp where I camp, cause I camp in the Fun Zone! I guess because I don't work out of a cubical i don't live life out of a cubical! Good lord,, Enjoy what you have and who you are with. "LET IT GOOOOO"

RE: Camping Lights

Some people are wound way to tight! Lighten up! It Called Festive! A celebration of sorts. The joy of camping! You all ever been beach camping?? What about all the twirly things spinning in the wind? The festive fish spinners? I enjoy it and appreciate the joy of it! And now with all the little solar light twirly spinning nautical theme things, Its allot of fun! And in reality,, If it Irks you,, you have chosen the wrong Hobby! Maybe the Desert is for you? But to be honest, when we camp in the desert I have an LED flag pole topper that changes colors! It serves two maybe three purposes. Its a camp locator when you are out on your dirt bike/quad/or side by side. Its patriotic (red/white/blue) and its FESTIVE! AND,, It can run all night! And if that bothers you----Don't ever camp at a NASCAR Event, Its always a FESTIVE event! P.S. Be happy you are not my sticks and bricks neighbor, I have them in my back yard and some in the front! HA!

RE: Roof Vent Security

I have a Max Air roof vent cover. They would have to remove that before entering. Not saying it can't be done,, But it covers the roof vent and would take a few extra minutes to remove it. If you are away from the camper, a longer throw dead bolt would help.

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Caulk,, THE MOST important part of your thread! Every Spring and Fall, check the caulk! Clean it with acetone and refill the cracks. I suggest taking the time to use a plastic putty knife and scrape a small "V" in a crack and fill with self leveling Dicore. I had my first issue this fall, I thought I did a good job but developed a seam seam leak on the roof. IN the rain I went up and cleaned and re filled a seam. So far so good! But yeah,, Spring and Fall, Check the seams!

Do yourself a favor. You are going on a long trip. Get two new batteries, make the old ones spares and enjoy your trip!

RE: RV Crushes Truck

Listening to Rush Limbaugh yesterday, there is a seven year old boy making 26 MILLION dollars off You tube videos. Comments from other parents were ,,"You Tube is the best baby sitter" For me,, If I need answers, I sit on my stack of encyclopedia's my parents bought in the late 70's and I search YouTube and Google for my answers!

RE: Typical problem we all see in RV parks.

For the idlers that own the yapping little dogs, buy a dog whistle,, then get up at 2 A.M., three A.M. and Four A.M. and give that whistle a toot! They will be too tired to get up early and idle! Heck you don't even need to get up, just leave it next to the bed! And if they do not have the yappers but the other neighbors do, Blow that whistle like crazy when they are idling, guarantee some on will have a discussion with some one! AND, if no one has dogs,, buy a portable boat air horn, crack your window when they are idling and toot that thing like a car alarm! Guarantee some one will want to discuss that! Life is short, don't get mad,,,get even!

RE: Typical problem we all see in RV parks.

Wow,, Am glad not one person complained about them having their headlights on while idling! For that specific reason I turn on all my out door lights on and leave them on all night! I consider that,,,,,Pay Back!

RE: RV Crushes Truck

I've seen a few high pins (non rv) with the pin resting on the hitch jaws. And non had large gaps. One would think there would be but their wasn't. In fact one side of the hitch plate had a gap and the opposite side had no gap..... like the picture in the vid. Most rv folks have never seen a high pin or had it happen. So all kinds of theories abound on how a high pin looks.... or have seen how many ways a high pin can happen. Even the pro grade OTR tractor trailer brand hitches like (Jost....Fountain....SAF Holland/etc) can be high pinned. RV hitch brands are no different. Well in the OTR circle its referred to as a "HIGH HOOK" and all the companies I have driven for a High Hook is a termination event! Not a warning,, you High Hook Your GONE! Also,, Its a FONTAINE not a fountain. But what would I know, only been at it for a few dozen years!
