The RV lifestyle can sometimes be deceiving. RVs give us the freedom to go nearly anywhere, but that doesnâ€™t always translate to the ability to do what we want, when we want to do it â€“ if we care aboutÂ camping and boondocking etiquette. If we don’t care, we are practically guaranteed toÂ annoy campground and RV park neighbors by following these five simple behaviors:
The Five Best Ways to Annoy Campground and RV Park Neighbors
Are you taking common courtesy on the road?
Keep your RV generator running at all hours.
Who needs to hear crickets chirping at dusk, or the silence of nature in the back country? If you keep your generator running all day and all night, you can enjoy life as usual. Watch TV at all hours, run that microwave and keep the A/C going without sacrificing one bit of your own comfort while youâ€™re out in nature. Itâ€™s just like staying home.
Don’t turn off your outside lights.
Your RVâ€™s manufacturer wouldnâ€™t have included pretty LED patio lighting on the side of your rig if they didnâ€™t want you to use it, right? But turning patio lights on and off when you need to go outside at night can be such a hassle. So as soon as the sun sets, just keep your patio lights blaring until morning. You never know when youâ€™ll need to walk the dog at 3 am. Besides, your neighbors can use the light too. If it bothers them, they always get a sleep mask or install RV night shades.
Allow your dog or children to run around off-leash and unsupervised.
Kids and dogs can be wild by nature, so when you want your human or furry children to experience the real meaning of freedom, just turn them loose on the campground and see what happens. Donâ€™t interrupt your important binge
