In a busy campground that's always easy.

I agree with this to some extent, but my issue is when you are set up (say on some BLM land with dispersed camping without 'sites' or rules) and someone comes and camps near you. It can be kind of hard to pack up and move under these circumstances.

"People without generators annoy no one..." I'm not so sure this claim can be made in our country today. It seems like so many are addicted to outrage. But 24/7 generator use is VERY annoying!!

What did the people say when you asked them directly?

Otherwise this is just more noise posted here. Plenty of other generator noise complaint threads.

There's a simple solution...go out and buy 10's of thousands of acres of range land. Build a road into the center of it and post no trespassing signs. Then you can set whatever rules you want for appropriate camping activities.

As long as it's public land and they are following the rules (official rules, not the ones you make up in your head), they have as much right to use the land as you do.

You probably are seeing a new crowd. If there is cell coverage, they may be out camping and working at the same time. Did you go over and talk to them...get to know them? Or did you sit their stewing over the newbies who don't know how to camp the right way?


So it is my job to educate the noisy neighbors…like you said ti is a new crowd and most don’t like to be told anything different. Most of the time you would be told to F off.

Go. ahead and HIDE behind the “rules say I can” so I will!
It’s the lack of common sense or common courtesy that we are talking about. Just because you can do you HAVE to?

Good point, my wife said most folks just don’t know about solar/inverters…and that is too bad for all of us.
And they may know about them but don't understand them. Generators are easy to understand.

"Some parks, very few…limit generator use to 2 hrs in the am and again in the pm, now that makes more sense."

Yes it does. AND like bgum, I've never had anyone complain about the noise my solar panels make.

This is one of those "us versus them" threads. I will always give in and move if there is someone obnoxious near me, meaning noise from generators, music, or parties. I won't wait for them to do something and confronting them these days could get me shot. So I would just move down the road and not let my blood pressure rise.

That said, it is unbelievable that in this day and age with all the technology of batteries, inverters, and solar panels that many have not been able to make the change. That is what's holding back the rest of the clean energy advancement.

What a pity. It won't change until every drop is used up. That's how we humans are.

Solar is "new," gtla, and "new" is scary and takes time and thought to understand.
