Just curious, I’ve seen a few times lately where RVs are pulled through several EV/Tesla charging slots, effectively blocking almost all of them, when there are other spots open, such as pull-through at highway rest stops or other empty areas in large parking lots. In one instance, the driver was eating lunch at the class C’s dinette. Is this a “thing”? Is there RV’er animosity toward EVs? (I’ve seen pickup trucks do it quite a bit, but just started noticing RVs, maybe because warm weather is here and people are RVing more).

Not that I'm aware of just sounds like inconsiderate people. If I wanted to use the charger I would of been knocking on the door asking them if they could move to give me access, being polite and thanking them if they comply.

People have the attitude that, it's all about me. No one else matters.
Kids see their parent/s doing it. So it will be passed on to future generations.
Only getting worst.

I think the EV chargers are specific to the car, an RV can’t plug into them.

I guess we travel in out of the way places because I've yet to see a Station that has EV Charging Stations, and we've been over most of the States East of the Mississippi.
