What kind of things does your truck do to make you want to watch it?

Obviously their parents didn't raise them right, but it's never too late to learn consideration for others.
Then there are the people who have the little dogs that YIP constantly. Worse than TV, Radio, or what have you. Somehow they get a free pass from all. No peace and quiet of nature there.

You need to camp in safer places if you have to watch your truck all night

Easy fix. Sling shot. We all carried one in our hip pocket when young. Give me hand full of uncooked brown beans and I can fix a yappy dog , bright light or noisy tv. With out getting up from my chair or interrupting my wife's great conversation

When we go to bed, the led lights are dimmed and being mounted under the attaching rail on the trailer, they only light up the area under the awning. They are on a dusk to dawn switch, which we never turn off. Never had anyone say a word about them.

I leave the trailer running lights on at night. Just barely enough light to use if I decide to walk or sit outside after dark. Not enough light to bother anyone more than ten feet away.

Around here, folks have strings of lights like it's Christmas at many campsites. I wouldn't dream of asking them to tone them down. That's what shades are for.

Music, especially Thumpa Thumpa, is another story entirely. Noise pollution.

Agree that there are different ways and styles of camping.
But what I don't get, is why someone goes to a state or national park campground, full of Nature's wonders and beauty, and proceeds to setup a tv theater room under the awning.
Or turns on the outside speakers and force neighbors to listen to his music or NASCAR race.
Maybe he doesn't know his outside speakers are on.

I didn't know the outside ones come on every time you turn on your radio until I read it here on the forum.
