Newbie Question on campgrounds

I am currently researching info on class C motorhomes. This will be our first RV and since I will be new to campgrounds I was wondering what are some of the things that newbies end up doing that annoy seasoned campers. I wouild appreciate any pet peeve so I hopefully can avoid aggravating other campers.

1. Take the time to read the campground rules when you check in - they vary quite a bit.

2. Like a Boy Scout, be kind, courteous, and helpful.

If you have pets, pick up the poo...

Don't leash them outside by themselves....

Don't be afraid to say hi and ask for help if you need it..

pets are one of my pet peeves - poo, yapping and barking, running loose, etc. I guess I can pretty much say the same about kids.

Dont arrive or leave during "quiet time". I need all the beauty rest I can get.

Talk with your neighbors. Lots of knowledge available!

Try to be at the park no later than about 8:00 or 9:00 pm if possible. No one really like being woke up at 11:00 pm by someone trying to park their rig.
As mentioned earlier, quiet dog and always pick up after them. Should be # 1
Be friendly and accommodating but don't interrupt people when they are setting up or preparing there rig to leave. Wait till there done.
Turn your outside lights (a.k.a. scare lights) off if you don't need them.
Wave and say hi to people sitting outside ther rigs.
That's really all I can think of. You'll find that campers are the most friendly and accommodating people you'll find anywhere.

Not having enough cold beer to invite me over to talk about rigs, making sure I can watch you back in (I'll try not to laugh) we were all new once, not being friendly and playing your music tooooooo loud. Not being upset when my 2 girls ride through your campsite before I can warn them not to. Basicly not being friendly. Sit back - relax - enjoy the campground.

Don't walk through occupied sites. It is rude. Empty sites are fair game as a short cut.

So well put, just use a lot of common sense, you will be fine.

Do not infringe on someones camp site. We have had folks at the next site string a rope between trees on our site and hang towels outside our windows. Good luck on your search!
