Problem solved if you forego full hookup sites.

We have seen parks with connections spaced far apart but on the same side.

We have seen ugly messes around the sewer connection.... a lot worse than a bird would leave.

PET peeve: Dogs off leashes and dog owners who do not pick up after their pets.

Depends on the camp. At church camp, the rule was "hand-holding only." Fortunately, they didn't specify hand holding what, so we were able to make it work

One thing I really hate (that hasn't been brought up yet) is, when people lock their car/ truck doors they HAVE to use the key fob, beeping the horn in the process. Really?? They have a button on the door that does the same thing silently! Another reminder of humanity present.

Maybe by knowing we can all be a little more courteous.

Could be anything like a diesel parking after dark, driving in the left lane or improperly loaded rig.

Maybe smoldering fires or yelling for the spouse early in the morning?
Not picking up afer your fur babies!

On some cars, pressing the button on the door also makes the car horn chirp/honk. It may not be possible to lock the car and arm the alarm without having a horn chirp.

Press it once and it locks silently.
Press it twice and it chirps the horn
Press it 9 times and you greatly annoy me!

Barking dogs!, dogs that are not on a leash. Or people that bring dogs to my site thinking that I want to pet them. (I didn't ask to see them). Not every RV owner is a dog lover.


Early noise before (6:30am)

I'll add to this that I see a lot of little dogs with really bad manners. Just because your dog is little and "cute" doesn't make it OK for your dog to bark continuously and lunge at people and other dogs.

It is very possible and every vehicle I have seen has an option for "silent locking/unlocking". And the newer it is the more tricks it does. Automatic widow closing, starting itself up to cool the interior when it gets hot out in the sun, all kinds of snazzy stuff, all optional.
The two real problems are that you have to read the owner's manual to figure out how to change stuff like that and no one reads manuals anymore. That and you just can't make some people care.

One of the first things I do upon acquiring a vehicle is disable that annoying lock/unlock noisemaker. You can usually reset it to flash your lights only if you need some sort of signal.

I have always done that too. Usually the information is buried deep within the manual, but it is there somewhere. The exception was the last two Toyota’s we have had - a 2009 Tundra and a 2007 RAV4. Now, there were both older models, but Toyota did not provide a way to turn that dreadful beep off! I had to confirm with the dealer, the service office, and even an email to Toyota! My husband has some high frequency hearing loss, and he couldn’t understand why I got sooooo irritated when he used the key fobs in campgrounds. Drove me nut.

Boy o boy many of you are easily annoyed. You should buy an RV so you can relax.
