Some people just have no consideration for others,,,

We had a great traveling Welsh Corgi we lost about a year ago. Now we have a little Morkie (half Maltese and half Yorkie) who loves the RV.
The best thing you can do no matter what you get is protection. We bought a unit that if the RV looses park power and therefore air conditioning, this unit would autostart the generator so the AC keeping running.
You can also pick up a fan from Camping World the plug into an outlet. It power lost, it switched to rechargeable battery to keep air flowing in case of a power failure.

Do you know the brand/model of the fan? I have been looking for one and can't find it!

The fan is from Camping World. O2 Cool 10" Rechargeable Fan. It's currently $59.99. Cat No. 81391.
It's got 1 bad review for going thru batteries fast but that how I use it. It stays plugged in and will use RV power as long as the power is on. It keeps the rechargeable batteries full charged. In the event of a power failure, it will switch automatically to the rechargeable battery. I think it will run about 5 or 6 hours on battery. It's only required on battery for emergency situation. Hopefully you will never need it. The generator start is the way to go if affordable. I don't have that info any more as it was a few RVs ago. Good Luck and keep your per cool.

Everywhere I've been, you were not permitted to leave your pet alone at the campsites.
We take our dog everywhere, yes it's a pain.

Our older boy, Buster, is a rescue corgi mix. He turned 17 last Christmas Eve. Quiet and loves people. We rescued Roscoe at 2 as he was about to be put down. He is quiet until someone knocks on the door. For him we leave the tv on as he will bark if startled by outside noise. Both love to camp and both are around 25#. After all these years Buster is not happy sharing the camper but puts up with the youngster.

We take our kids everywhere too. We find a lot of places will allow pups if you ask. Especially during their off-seaon, they want/need/love your business! !

I am on call at certain times of the year. You got to try to live your life as normal as possible. So you still go camping. Well it never fails I will get the call in the early morning hours.

I have become a menace to campgrounds because if this. Starting a V8 engine quietly is really hard to. Turning on headlights while pointed at tents never makes for good friendships. But the worst is hitting the panic button for the truck at 2 AM and not being able to turn it off quickly. I have done this twice. It is amazing how loud these things are at night.

How does this relate to dogs? More than half start barking while this is happening. I think they are laughing at me, saying what a idiot I am.

I have never seen a rule at any cg that dais dogs could not be left alone in the camper. Not permitted outside alone is in many CGs no matter if you are inside or not. They are much more comfortable in the camper than in the TV as most restaurants and attractions do not permit them. As long as they are not a barker when you are not there everyone is happy.
