Small world. Iíve called them Gestapo too. State Park made us take down a play tent couple years ago that kids were playing in during the day. You could fit a cooler or two insideÖmaybe. They said it was in violation of rules as we were only allowed one camping structure. Iíve since moved on from that type of camping. I stay far away from others as possible for their pleasure and mine. We camp with family at times and can get a little loud when we do that. When alone we like it QUIET so we can hear water, whispering pines, and loons. I believe people complain because itís a way of life for them and have done it for so long its hard to change and might not want to. The only thing I want to complain about is the brief grumble (fun time is over) I give when driving out of the campground to go home.


BTWÖI love all this light talk. I have been reading thru previous thread on awning LED strips. You all lost your minds on that one! That was a bigger frenzy than tickle me elmo. I have purchased some and am itching to get to work on the install and hooking up to batteries once I get the camper.

I placed several of these (in amber) on the side of our trailer. RV Chick was looking for some to add, LED, fairly cheap, easy to install. I just hated that my 38 ft of fiberglass behind me had 3 side marker lights. Note they are running only, not turn in my configuration, but I might re-wire one into turn as well. Just did not get that far.

When we set-up I give the kids a flat of the small LED path lights (bought 'em at wally world for .50 each on sale) and they outline the entire campsite. We also run some Christmas style LED globe lights under the camper. We like to have some light around our site, and it looks so cool when you are walking toward the camper. Always gotten compliments on it.

I also put red flashings LED's on the kids backs so I can see them more easily. They think it is cool. I see lots of kids with glow sticks hanging around their necks too.
