Social media is a powerful thing. I'd let the park know I was going to post it to all my social media accounts and advise everyone I know of the lack of consideration. I am not a fan of anyone taking advantage of another person regardless of what their "policy" is.
Hope the recovery is quick and you are able to get out there nad enjoy the RV soon!
Unfortunately once the door is opened there are always some that will take advantage of the situation. Once word gets around that a "medical reason"
qualifies for a refund everyone who cancels will be doing it for medical reasons.
Case and point. My mother owned a house in Florida. Her health was failing and she could no longer devote the time and energy to rent it so she put it up for sale. A couple made an offer. They wanted a closing date six months later so my mother asked for a non refundable offer to insure they would go through with the deal.
One day before the closing date the couple appeared at the door telling my mother that they had decided not to buy the house because of a medical condition and asked for a refund. As it turned out the medical condition was that the wife had broken her ankle 5 months earlier. In all that time they hadn't bothered to contact my mother, and by now it was too late in the season to try to rent the house.
Not only did my mother loose the income from the sale, she couldn't rent it. She still owed the taxes and had been paying utilities for a property that was vacant. The deposit she retained didn't even cover the taxes, let alone the utilities. Needless to say the house went back on the market, and the next accepted offer included a higher non refundable deposit and a closing date within 3 months.
