And i do understand if you do have to stop all i am saying is, if you see it and you can stop 5 feet short of it, or pull just past it, please try to do so.

Sometimes you honestly just dont see it... Last month in a state park, nit our home state, we were pulling in, which us for us backing.... and the person across from us had their dish set up literally on the paved road. I was at the back helping DH back in when i noticed it and signaled him to stop. He had not seen it and in backing in ALMOST got it, the man came running out and moved it two inches. Really that is all. After we got set up DH went over to apologuze and the guy was really ugly, fussing because he had to reset it now.... We just ignored it after that, but soneone else must have complained... The next day the rangers came to ask him to move it.... Thses same people had 3 vehicles when the limit was two.... So that told me a lot..... We try to be as inobtrusive as possibke when setting our dish up.....

Right, i agree and if you dont see it then you dont.....i havent had anyone hit it yet but mine is on the woods like about 6" in front of the trees. Easily seen and not intrusive as to effect anyone pulling into a site. I know it may from time to time be obstructed, all i was asking for is people to pay attention to their surroundings and if possible to avoid the obstructing view. As i said, if possible.

Call me curious george, but if there's a satellite in our campground, I'm stopping to look at it

Reading books is a good alternative to the boob tube anyway.

This same OP didn't make any points in other forums either - about the same responses!

I'd definitely invest in a ladder mount for it... it will be alot less frustrating for you.Sometimes stopping in the line of someones satellite dish is unavoidable, and probably the last thing on anyones mind when going into an unfamiliar camp. The idea of a satellite dish in the motorhome is totally foreign to me....I can watch tv at home. I do sometimes partake of the park cable available if it's going to be raining, but otherwise the tv isn't on. I'm out exploring or busy with activities in the rear of the coach... I always route the shore line, water and sewer hoses and tv cable under the edge of the coach, not so much for anyone else safety, but my own....I can be a klutz at times.

As i full time, so that is why i have it. I do have a ladder mount, but just like roof mounts the trees block it.

You are correct. As such i will digress. This will be my last post on this topic. But my courtesy to all others (especially if i find out they are ones on some of these forums) will be gone. Dont expect any kind gestures from me......oh im sorry, you have a flat tire....sucks for you, i would have helped you change it but that would be the considerate thing to do. Oh your lost? Get directions elsewhere. Im usually the first one to stop and assist but not anymore....farewell and signing off this place. Im sorry i could not be more like you all with a house and an rv vacation home. I by choice and necessity have to live in mine for a bit. I try and teach my kids manners and respect. I think, with responses i have seen, that might be a worthless trait at this point because you dont care who you effect, cant or wont control your children and then talk down to those who just make a simple request of being observant if it is possible. Why should i teach my kids to respect others and their property when apparently nobody else does? Would you like to come outside and find your hood of your truck was sat on by a few kids and ice cream dripped all over it? Even with their parents right there? Doesn't matter what the property is, someones, the cg's or public but not designed for that use. As far as blocking goes....so be it...block my satellite, hell i dont own the road, block in my vehicles while you are at it but dint blame me when yours gets damaged because i couldn't make the turn. Signing off.... have a good life

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
