I, too, would be one to offer someone help in backing in, or whatever the situation might be to make camping life easier. Apparently, these 2 couples ( probably the men ) felt that their "camping pride of knowledge" was being stepped on when another volunteered their assistance.

In the case, as it was, I would have sat back and enjoyed the entertainment too. I'm always open to a good head-shaker.

As to the people and their sewage hose phobias. I can only say that my growing up and tending to the chicken house, horse stalls, and other enjoyable chores around the farm....oops, not to forget the outhouse, soap does wonders on your hands afterwards. I just get a chuckle out of some the responses here.

The best plans can be of those that happen in the spur of the moment!

I showed up solo for the mayberry rally with s 40' fiver. 2 FRF members promptly showed up and ground guided me in. They got a very polite thank you for the help as it was appreciated.

The hose thing always cracks me up... Do they clean their toilet with their dish sponge too? I saw one shoving the nasty hose at a dump station into his fresh water tank. Wonder if he would face done it if he hand seen This guy:

Of course he didn't need help. He already had 3 helpers pointing in different directions !

Dumbest thing I have ever seen while camping.

In 25 years of RVing I have never used gloves. Guess I'm just careful.

As for the other comments, I side with Mark Twain: "The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog."

It's getting so disruptions at campgrounds are the new norm. Barking dogs, loud music and TV, unruly kids (and adults), no involvement by park managers, driving around at night with brights on, and on and on. Not sure there's a cure but it's sad to see.

When we got our little Salem Cruise Lite we spent a lot of time in huge parking lots and fields until my husband got a handle on backing that thing. But when we first started there were times when I would have loved an expert to show up ;-)

Along the same lines, I used to take my little flat-bottom boat to the lake and while I could have backed it down in a couple of tries, there were always some good fellows who jumped out of their trucks and offered to get it in there for me in no time flat.

Of course I know it's because they're behind me in line and want me out of the way, but, hey I appreciated the help!

When someone offers and the husband isn't ready to accept I thank them for the offer and say we're practicing ;-)
All who wander are not lost, most times we just forgot the map.

Never underestimate the stupidity of people when in a crowd.

Those same people are breeding.

They also vote.

And lastly, they don't read this great forum.

I watched an elderly couple in a small RV they obviously owned do the same hose trick one morning as they packed up to leave just outside Atlanta. Ran the drinking hose all the way down the sewer hose to rinse it out. Problem was, the sewer hose was still connected to the sewer, so more than likely they ran that hose right down into the sewer line. Yummy! Another reason I carry a spray bottle of bleach water with me and spray down all the spigots before I connect our drinking water hoses!

OK, yes true, but how many are really using garden hoses that are new and are potable water rated and how many have just unhooked the hose from their backyard?
