We wouldn't really connect it to the black tank of course but I agree that people cutting through your site is frustrating. In the CG we spend most of our winter we have an ocean site. There are always people that wander through and in front of our site. If you wanted ocean front PAY FOR IT. Sadly the CG has no rule against going through other peoples sites. Walking down the ocean front means you cut through someones site in our case.

I don't mean to sound like a miserable complainer but we pay much more for the privilege of having the site. End of rant.

That's actually kind of cool! Now if they had one with a microphone that would come on with dog barks. I think having it hit the side of the owner's trailer with a water stream would work.

Great idea Mark! UNLESS they're wearing bathing suits heading for the beach! Then the entire campground would come through your site, and then come back through to wash the sand off!

I just don't understand what some folks have against other drivers being able to use cruise control without having to constantly reset it. And of course, we all know what happens when you get over to pass. I guess I'm just getting to old to turn a trip down the highway into some kind of mind game with an unarmed person.

I guess I would call blinker usage 1a. Especially when you might be trying to pull out into traffic, and would have been able to if the idiot that just turned would have given a signal.

I'd love to know what park has these rules! And do you get this info before you arrive? And how would they know if you used your own washer? Odd...

How would they know you were using the washer? Unless they were INSIDE our coach during the last spin cycle they might know it's in use. No indication from the outside though.

The nice smell wafting about from the dryer?
Some places have high costs for water and/or sewer.

Not necessarily.....my wife hand washes a lot her "stuff" that she doesn't want to put into a machine and then spins and dries it in the combo.

Personally if I ever come across such ridiculous rules I will either go some place else where normal people are warmly welcomed or just ignore their ignorant stupid rules.

Or go to the novelty store and get a bunch of fake dog poop and also get a screw in dog anchor to place in the middle of it.

One more.

Automatic-flush toilets with premature timing. And cold water.
