Last trip to AZ this year, we paid to dump only at Lost Dutchman State Park.(we've stayed there before) There was a small TT in one of two lanes, and after 12-15 minutes, the other lane opened up. So we backed out the MH, turned around and pulled in next to him so we could dump. He appologized for taking so long, heck I said No problem,, we are on vacation... BUT,, geez, he was still there after we dumped both tanks, washed the hoses, stored and rolled out. Nothing here against the OP, just this guy was nice, but good grief, they were pulling things out of the TT I've never seen before... Thing is, everybody was nice and freindly, like 99% of rv'rs ... Very sorry the OP ran across ONE that was nasty... Most are nice people of a like mind from what we have found.

Right there is the key to the situation being discussed. Had Mr Bully been in line behind Dwayne Johnson, the situation would not have occurred.

In the many trips we have made across the country, not once have we encountered such a blatantly rude fellow RVer. Most RVers will offer a helping hand if they see someone struggling with something. If a strong wind comes up at an RV park, people are out making sure unattended rigs get awnings retracted and secured. Rig owners may be out on a shopping trip but there is always a fellow RVer around to handle things.

One thing to remember is never argue with a idiot, he will bring you down to his level and beat you up with experience.

Thanks everyone. What surprised me, him being the first RV idiot I've met, was his attitude. I know you're right about him being a bully. He saw a woman, who is carrying a wheelchair on the back, and knew he wasn't up against anyone who could teach him some manners.

But, he is the only 1 in several thousand RVers I've met who has ever been anything but pleasant and helpful. RVers are the best of the lot, at least most RVers.

He was a bully. In your situation take a picture and call the cops. Do not confront people like him. He was behaving badly and you felt threatened. Good for you that it turned out like it did.

The world is full of rude,crude,and socially unexceptable and down right stupid people if they like to stay up all night and laugh and talk loud I tend to leave early and start my engine and let it warm up real good. As others have said you just can't argue with stupid let them do their thing stay out of the way.

First thing is smile and say "not like I'm enjoying this...be done when I'm done pal". If that doesn't work then these four words have always worked well for me....middle finger pepper spray. A piece of advice, never EVER turn your back to someone you've just had trouble with. Always keep one eye on them until they go away or until you do.[ moderator edit ]

This situation may not have occurred if the guy had a motorhome. He might have parked behind you, opened the fridge for a drink or snack maybe use the on board facilities,have a nap on the couch etc.

I will save this story for the motorhome vs truck fifth wheel debate..
