Dogs off leash. Lots of people think this rule doesn't apply to them. My dog is always restrained, whether on a leash or on a tether at the campsite. This puts her at a distinct disadvantage when she's approached by loose dogs. Because this rule is so often broken, we feel fearful of stepping inside the camper for just a minute while our little dog is tethered outside. This is something we shouldn't have to worry about.

Especially bad if you have little dogs. I never leave our dog unattended just because he would be just 1 bite for a large dog.

Plugging in with the power pole live causes arching at the plug and can cause a number of things like a burnt plug on your power cord, voltage spikes that can damage stuff in your RV to name a few. It does not matter for us anymore as I installed a Progressive Industries hardwired proctector and it delays power turn on for 2 minutes after it tests the quality of the power.

So what is you biggest pet peeve while camping?

Mine is obsessively barking dogs that bark from the moment they pull in till the minute they leave.

What irks me is slow internet at campgrounds, whereas I can't get on here and tell everyone my pet peeves.

All the pet peeves (mine included) have pretty much been covered.

I don't get this one though? The campgrounds we've been in, I haven't seen switches for turning the power off/on? Some posts maybe have a circuit breaker to reset! If you have nothing turned on in the RV, what's the problem? Pull the breaker on your converter and everything should be off!

People walking their dog on a long leash and letting it sniff around my grill. Followed quickly by a raised leg and peeing on my picnic table or the tires on my truck.
