My wife would describe quiet time, as when I was not with ear shot
My funny one, was when I was woken two or three times during the night, when the trailer next to us water heater would fire up with a pretty loud start up noise. (Not a big deal to me, as I have ear plugs for close quarters with a bit of noise from the neighbors equipment.)
What was funny, was when I was out cleaning the windshield of the toad, and the owner of the trailer walked up and confronted me: "Your coach makes too much noise at night! Can you control it, and if not - please (Yep, a polite gent, said 'please' move to a different site?"
I first confirmed his unit was, yep the trailer that had the water heater wake me up when it kicked on during the evening. Once this was confirmed, I pointed out that my coaches heating was from a HydroHot, and it would cycle on/off over the evening to provide the coaches heat. I pointed out this was similar to his propane furnace (Which we could hear, but never woke me.) and also pointed out that his Water Heater kicking on was loud enough to have woken me off and on during the evening.
I said regardless of this, I was not asking him to alter his stage of his trailers equipment. That when in a park with close quarters, it was just part of the 'experience'. Suggested that since I was 'Living with his units noise, that perhaps he should live with my units noise. And if he could not, that perhaps the park could find him a different site to move too.'
It really can get silly what we can find to complain about at times. Heck, some people actually sit outside their RV's and watch TV.... go figure
Way to many important things going on, including having fun, then letting a few crazy people get to you:!
(And note: Later on that day, I saw this gent outside again. Walked over and said I'd make him a deal. If he would turn his hot water heater off when done using it in the evening, and then turn it back on in the AM in time to have hot water when he needed it. That I would turn my Hydro Hot heating system off during the night, and use a portable electric heater. I also suggested, that the next time he had a problem with a neighbor in an RV park, to just walk up and have a polite conversation. Amazing what can be accomplished by just open conversation.) (Oh. He did, and I did, and we spent about three more days in this park - no problems afterwards.)
Best to all,
