Arriving at a campground at 2pm an hour past checkin only to find a camper on my site and people just hanging out. Waiting an hour while they slowly move to pack up in a heavily hung over state and glare at you for being there. Hey if checkout is 11am and you sleep in till after lunch you are late.

One last one: hearing someone blow their nose or hock one up while in the shower. Really.

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!
They are talking about the cct breaker in the power post (not really a switch per se) and really it should be off when you connect and or disconnect. There is also stuff on AC in your trailer like the microwave, TV and if your fridge is set to auto it will immediatly switch over. It is really just a good practice to get into.

Similar to having your home vacuum cleaner on/off switch in the on position before plugging it in. You might get an arc - doesn't happen often, but it can. The current flow is looking for a ground and if the switch is on when you plug in, the ground is made.

Applies to any electrical device - turn the device's switch off before plugging it in.

AGREE, get the electrical stuff off this thread. Moderators? Little help here.

1. Running out of beer and realizing I'm too buzzed to drive and get more.
2. Plugging into 240V.
3. Realizing I need a tool and knowing exactly where it is, and where it is not.
4. Plugging into 240V.
5. Oh, and the last one, plugging into 240V.

People who cut through campsites, mostly because it bothers my dogs more than me. It's one of our big rules with the kids to not cut through sites.

People who don't respect quiet hours. I like to stay up late camping, but eventually I need sleep.

First check when we arrive is 1. where is the closest beer and 2. do we have enough to last the night?
