So someone went to leave to enjoy their day, they started their blankety blank diesel, let it warm up, you don't say how long this took, five minutes? An hour? And it got you to a state of needing to calm down?

You've never done something that was bothersome to anyone?

Know what gets my dander up? Besides other people wandering through sites and other mentioned things.

When the campfire conversation gets cranked up and there's that one screaming laugher. You know, laughing at the top of their lungs, I guess to get attention. Usually while I'm trying to either quietly read or get to bed so early the next morning I can fire up my blankety blank diesel and go enjoy my day.

I'm sorry you got woke up, but why worry about it so much? Must be like blade of grass, sway with the breeze, not like stiff twig, easily broken.

Although never bothered by it, I've experienced the 6am, neighbor, twenty/thirty minute warm up for the diesel. Is that really necessary?

There's a belief from the old days of diesels that they had to be fully warm with the thermostat open to run properly. Unfortunately that takes a long time when idling.

Any diesel built in the last 20 years will be fine, fire and drive it unloaded, they're ready to haul by the time you get hooked up to the trailer.

But even more is someone walking thru your site. We are teaching our kids cg boundaries, and that is thier site, walk around to ours.

Oh another one is tent campers wanting to use your electric for a coffee pot or something. Thats just awkward.

I have never had anyone ask to use the electric to brew morning coffee. That is just taking advantage of another person. Anybody going camping and knowing they drink coffee should either get the old time drip pot or a camping site with electricity. Donít get me wrong, Iím all for helping others, but my goodness a camping trip is preplanned.

I don't mean to hijack the thread , but I'm guessing the OP has a GREAT taste in music. This comes from a fellow Hazelnut

X2 I own a diesel myself there is no reason for it to warm up unless it is very cold out.I do let any of my vehicles idle for at least 30 seconds or so before I go in to drive when I start them up.

If I end up pulling out of camp early I usually warn my neighbors the day before I hook up the night before I leave and try to be as quiet as possible

Early morning noise, diesel or otherwise, is part of camping with other RVers, suck it up Buttercup or buy some noise cancelling headphones.
