This one is SO annoying! Either leave your vehicle unlocked or press the button on the door.


Many cars with keyless entry don't have that option, the car locks (and beeps) automatically when you step away -- the beeps can be silenced (I've silenced mine), but it requires wading through the menus to find the option.


If you go camping a lot and get in and out of your car a lot, it's worth wading through convoluted menus.

It was the first thing I did when I got my durango - then I set the clock and my radio presets.

I have a couple more: leave the dog at home and don't play music outside of your RV.


The dog is half the reason I go camping at all. He's always on leash, we pick up after him and he's never left unattended, but if I can't take the dog to an RV park, I'm not going.


I agree. I don't think it requires leaving your dogs at home, just follow the posted rules (including the one about no unattended pets).

One thing I have learned over the years is that most people will be understanding with a less than perfect dog (or child) as long as you show an effort to stop annoying behavior.

A kid shrieking in a campground for hours while the parent completely ignores it is annoying - a kid shrieking in a campground for hours while the parent shows an effort to stop or reduce the shrieking is understandable.

Same with dogs. A dog left to bark nonstop while the owners ignore it is annoying - a dog barking while the owners show an effort to stop the barking is understandable.

Don't play cornhole until late in the evening. No one appreciates the rhythmic thump thump of bean bags like you do.

Chindog,
We just experienced what you described. We have now added a new location in one of our favorite campgrounds to avoid.

Don't poop your dog below my RV steps.

As one who owns his own RV site; I sure would like to see people obey the
"six foot dog leash" rule, and let them do their business on front of your site, not on the front of mine.
The only other thing is if I can hear your radio at my site, it is too loud.

Yep.

So that it doesn't get lost in discussion, this one is REALLY IMPORTANT:
Don't take up two (or more) parking spaces with your RV when visiting towns.

RVers are guests in other places. We represent the RVing community. In addition to getting ticketed, we are creating our own bad PR.

If I was bothered by all of this stuff I would hang it up.
