I think more about the diesel exhaust dumping into my neighbor's rig than the noise. I understand that it's "just part of camping" but I try to minimize the duration.

I rarely stay at a camp ground for over night. when we have - the trains going nearby offer more wake me up noise than any other equipment or location
We stay at Walmart and don't dump air if just overnight. Some walmarts are better than others when it comes to night noise. especially the cleaning crew or the large trucks with motors running all night. we keep our list private so there won't be many other RV there.

What about not for overnight, but you are still a working stiff that needs to get home to go back to work to keep paying the Social Security Taxes and Medicare Taxes for those who already are retired and hoping that there is something there for me and the next generation when I retire? I would and do overlook those who attempt to be as quiet as possible on their departure and hope you have a safe trip to your next destination or home. I realize that everyone has their own agenda and hopefully are attempting to be as respectful as possible.

Recently I had to depart at a very early hour, 4:30 am to get back to go to work with a very long drive, but I did all the prep the night before I possibly could, the only motorhome next to me was my parents and they said they never heard us leave.

You have the idea, be as considerate of others as you want them to be towards you.

We trained ourselves to sleep with a white noise machine running. I never hear outside sounds, well, except for Havre, MT, the CG is between the highway and the RR switch-yard.

Almost as much as the BNSF locomotives coming through the crossing at Williams Arizona beside Grand Canyon Railway Campground.

There's a train there in Williams? LoL.... Actually I don't remember hearing one at night, either they didn't run at night or I just tuned it out. Many times I never hear the folks next to me leave at night, unless they start talking loudly. Sometimes hearing loss isn't a bad thing! Usually I tell those on either side that I'm leaving early the next day and make my apologies before hand and then try to be reasonably quite as we're leaving. Most understand that you have to leave and make some noise. The other few that don't? Well......

Not that I know of. I have but I did not ask permission. Some Walmart's are not user friendly. I have been kicked out of one or two.

Happy trails to you too.
