Never, EVER, complain about such good room service as that. Does it include turn-down service with the mint?

I fully agree with you on this. Your dinner time and mine are not the same. When you get to the park is the time to park your rig.

I had a cat once. Same thing only we both had hair back then. Enjoy the journey.

What about the group that someone mentioned as setting out the lawn chairs and grill when they pulled in at midnight? It always seems like one can go too far.

they paid for their site just like everyone else. if they can operate inside the quiet time and set up, no problem. if they are violating quiet time then they should be asked as everyone else would to decease the activities. idling a diesel, putting out slides and hooking up wouldn't fall under those provisions.

If the campground allows midnight arrivals then yes, there would be nothing wrong with a group coming in at midnight and getting the coach set up. Some may not appreciate it but it is understandable that sometimes things happen and you get there late. Is there really a need for a BBQ grill and lawn chairs to be set up at that time of night though or are the people just oblivious to others? Remember, we are talking etiquette here, not just campground rules.

Does respect for others mean to stop rude or inappropriate behavior only when asked or to just not behave like that in the first place?

On RV campground etiquette, internet says:

RV Etiquette

RV 101 Education with Mark Polk: RV Campground Etiquette Keeps Campers Happy

https://www.woodysrv.com/blog-archiv...-etiquette.cfm

RV Campground Etiquette - RV UNIVERSITY

What about making a sticky on iRV2 on general etiquette summarizing points made here and possibly others from the internet not mentioned here?

This has been an interesting read. My personal pet peeves...
1. Golf carts all over the place.
2. Loud and obnoxious neighbors.
3. Disturbances after lights out. We were at a campground in NWMO where people set up their washers tournament out in the "street" with job sight lights on each end. Drinking and whooping it up until the wee hours of the morning. They were asked to leave as soon as they were sober enough to drive.
4. Traipsing across other people's sites.

I guess this makes me a grouchy old man.

Not at all. Those are very common concerns for people who still care about etiquette as they are found on all of the different links myredracer provided.

We had a similar situation at the Capitol KOA (MD). Campground management claimed there was a "patrol" during the night; however, nothing was done about it.

Yeah, isn't it funny how all campground staff disappears and loses their hearing at night? That's one thing that really irritates me as (in my eyes) some of what I pay for when camping is the staff at the park. I shouldn't have to go out and enforce the rules then wonder if someone is going to let the air out of my tires when I'm not around for having the gall to tell people to keep it down at 1am.

If you knock on my door I would expect it to be because something is amiss and you want to inform me or you have something for me. My previous MH neighbor and I were on very friendly terms but we only ever chatted if we saw each other outside. If we knocked on each others door it was because we had something for one another.
