The question is; should I start up and let it idle slow and quieter for longer or turn on the cruise control increasing the idle speed, and the noise level, for a shorter period of time.

What is the consensus as to the best way to be a good neighbor at Sunup.

Hi Keith, here is a thread that was just on here about what you are asking..... How early is too early?

Early morning starts

I figure its a campground. People come & go every day. Just the way it is. I try to have toad hooked night before & make as little noise as possible. But whatever time I decide to leave is what it is. Slides in-start up --leave when aired up. No air horn. Lol

Daveb1 is right. Engine noise is easy to sleep through, but shouting and slamming are not.

What irritates me is the loud voices yelling out communications and instructions. Slamming doors is not a favorite either.
I actually like to get up early to experience the quiet time while everyone else is asleep.
I agree, idling your engine doesn't bother me, unless your one of those yokels that is continually revving your engine until it reaches temperature. The slamming of compartment doors and hollering at your traveling companion is much more annoying to us.

There is at least a night's worth of reading about this topic on the forum. Responses range from: "do on to others as....." all the way to " ....the 'book' says I have to" or '' its my God given right to run my engine...." It takes all kinds to make the world go around, fortunately you dont have to meet all of them every day--just saying.

How often have you camped near a freight train line? Any apologies given by the engineer at 4:30 AM as he blast his horn all the way through town?

I have found that most of the time we are not even aware that the folks next to us have pulled out until we look out the window. Most of the RVs are fairly sound resistant. Most of us are not bothered with the neighbors pulling out early. It is just a part of camping. Ones voice is more disturbing that the close-up procedure, in my opinion, at 5, 6 or 7AM.

Camping includes travel. We must be forgiving to one another when a reasonable effort of curtsey is seen in how our neighbor is packing up. When one is noisy and disturbing we can look forward to them leaving. Most likely they were disturbing the neighbors the night before.

Thanks for thinking of your neighbors. You are already doing the right thing, no mater how you do it.

Our coach is pretty quiet inside. I usually hear someone start up and then fall back to sleep. It's just normal activity of a campground. Be polite, quick and quiet and you can't go wrong.

My last coach was pretty loud at high idle. My new coach not so much. I do like when you hear the turbo spool up on warm up.

Noise at campground

Pretty hard to get excited about the normal sounds of a coach getting ready for the road when most campgrounds are either sitting by an airport, railroad or interstate highway. This summer camped in North Las Vegas we saw some of our best leaving for work in some pretty cool rides. (near Nellis AFB) But they did make a lot of noise! Almost as much as the BNSF locomotives coming through the crossing at Williams Arizona beside Grand Canyon Railway Campground.

Depends on if they(the next door) are the ones that came in at 11:00 pm. Then started at the yelling, left left no the other left. Ok good , Martha you can put the slide out now I got the poop tube on. Martha make me a sandwich and coffee. Door opens Fred you want ham or chicken "ham" door slams. You get the idea. Just a little fun. Start and go. It's a CG, people come and go.

I noticed you have a Monaco.
My Monaco manual says to bring air up BEFORE bringing slides in.
If I am staying one night, I do not dump the air.
If I am staying for longer, I preheat the engine with the Aquahot
so the engine is not cold.
I then only need a few minutes to air up, shut down,
then retract slides, do the rest of the packing up.
I then fire the coach and am ready to leave.

If I am leaving before 8 am, I tell my neighbors the night before.
Sometimes I will air up the night before, so I do not need to fire the
coach up twice.

Each coach has its own way of doing things and Monaco is one of them.

Courtesy is major
