satellites at campgrounds

Sorry i am just venting, but if you see a satellite at a CG and have to stop your rig, if there is room, please have the common courtesy of not stopping dead smack in front of it.

A satellite is an object which has been placed into orbit around the earth.

I will also add in, if you see a winegard carryout (which says what it is)with cables attached please do not let your kids sit on it to eat their ice cream, then pick it up and read the label, then ask me what it is.......i hate stupidity

RV, upon seeing a satellite at a CG, stopped dead smack in front of it.

Sounds like you need a ladder mount for your Dish.
Then should only have problems with trees/tree limbs parked in the way.

Ok, so i see i dont share the common courtesies people should have in my opinion....my fault.....thought just maybe some people would like to show some courtesy to others that they may expect in return. But to each their own i suppose, guess whatever you all are doing is far more important then what anyone else may be doing.

I have one...but had to put it out about 10 feet due to trees in the campground. Was on the ground when the ice cream thing happened but was on a tripod and all day people would just stop in front of it.....had 1000 ft in either direction it but guess that was the prime spot to be

I don't think people are thinkin about inconveniencing you when they stop infront of your dish. We don't have a dish so I'm only suggesting that you get a sign and place it in the area in front. I think if theres something to draw attention to your dish and a polite sign, people will likely be accomodating

Oh boy! That happened to you? Stupid and Ignorant. People really do not think.
We live in Mexico during the winter. People frequently ask us, "Is it nice where you go?"

Maybe you need a Hazmat sticker?

Right now i have a regular oval dish that says dish network on it, sitting on a tripod, mainly because the kids broke my winegard by feet kicking the cord....so i put up a regular dish til i get a new adapter piece.

Good post. I never thought about it before.

Location-location-location

I guess the question I have is where was the dish was located? If you put it somewhere in a high traffic area where it couldnt be avoided you kind of have to expect it to be blocked/moved or whatever. If the motorhome that blocked it had to go out of their way to block it then your indignation is well deserved. But if you put it next to the road.......... I see people doing that all the time.

I use an external dish when my KVH doesn't work (very often) and the only problem I've had are when I've kicked it while being a klutz. Been in some tight spaces where there was little choice about where to put it and never had a problem.
