satellite dishes at CGs

Sorry i am just venting, but if you see a satellite dish at a CG and have to stop your rig, if there is room, please have the common courtesy of not stopping dead smack in front of it.

Also, if you see a winegard carry out it is not a bench for your kids to eat their ice cream from the camp store.

Nor pick it up, read the label, and put it back down just to ask me what it is (if you can read the label, you should be able to comprehend it). I hate stupidity!

So, a satellite dish sitting on the ground by the road means the satellite dish owner also owns the road in front of the dish. Now I understand. Thanks for the clarification. Also, make sure your kids are not inquisitive, and are knowledgeable of something they may never have seen before. Man, kids are such idiotic, stupid pests!

No, but its common courtesy......so by your standards, i could park my truck and work on it while blocking in your vehicles becausr hey, im on the road way.

As far as looking at it goes IDC, but to let your kids sit on it and eat ice cream is stupidity. Guess if i ever see you, i will put my daughter and her ice cream on the hood of your truck because its close to the road and its not marked

When Iím coming into a campground with my fifth wheel I donít even think about where someoneís dish is setupÖand Iím not going to start. Iíve got too many other things to watch out for. Iím with you on the issue of kids though, they should have been taught not to touch other peopleís property without permission nor to encroach on someoneís RV site.

Let's not get carried away, no one said anything about blocking vehicles. I think all that is required with the kids is to ask them not to sit on the dish. Maybe an elevated, collapsible stand for the dish might eliminate the problem for everyone.

And i do understand that but if you do have to stop all i am saying is, if you see it and you can stop 5 feet short of it, or pull just past it, please try to do so. Not the eh, not my problem or issue.

Doesn't make a difference if its a satellite or vehicles. By your statement the camper doesn't own the road. And it is on an elevated collapsible stand and i do understand if you do have to stop all i am saying is, if you see it and you can stop 5 feet short of it, or pull just past it, please try to do so. If there isnt an option, so be it, i can live with it.

Definitions: Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupidity is the inability to acquire knowledge. I would call your examples ignorance. But I do get your drift. Your favorite soap might be on and get blacked out..! There are involuntary inconsiderates thru out the world and campgrounds are not exempt..!! Try to roll with the punches..!!!

The kids part is ignorance yes but the reading the label and then asking what it is, that would be stupidity

Friend, I would say I agree wholeheartedly with you, but bottom line, if we, myself included a lot of times, don't learn to relax and stay cool, we'll all end up with ulcers or a heart attack for this kind of stuff. Me, I've already had one bout with the heart (installed stint) and have tried desparately to not let the little things bother me as much. For myself, being retired, I try to tell myself that I'm not in that much of a hurry and to relax and think of what the Man upstairs has bestowed on me and to be thankful I'm still above ground.

End of sermon. Have fun!

Numerous manufacturers have developed a solution to the satellite issue.

As for the kid issue, parents have a responsibility for their offspring. They alone are responsible for instilling a sense of responsibility and respect for others in their children. Do not even attempt to cast your responsibilities upon me or mine, I've raised my children, they are responsible & respectful of others, so I've done my part, its now time for children's parents to step up, do the right thing by them and give them the tools to go forward into life as responsible, respecting citizens. No political correctness intended!

I agree with this but not sure where this part is coming from.....are you referring to speaking with the kids? Parents? Or ignore it all together as that would be casting responsibility on you or your children? Im confused

I am in the same boat as you, both of our sons are grown and were taught to be respectful of others and they in turn have instilled the same in our grandchildren. Others, I am sad to say, have not done likewise. Sad situation, but I guess we just have to either put up with it or try to pick cg's that cater to old folks. lol

Come on now yes maybe someone has to stop in front of your dish to say MAYBE WALK THE SITE TO ENSURE NO LOW BRANCES RIP HIS ROOF OPEN - DAAAA, or maybe look to double chech room to turn and access the side so he doesn't break his hitch, I mean TRUTH NOW how long was the RV actualy blocking your dish? or was it in the middle of a very ROMANTIC (sic) point in the movie??

Guess I don't get taking a satellite dish to watch tv at all. I don't go camping to watch tv. So I don't get why you get so mad. If I go camping I surely am not worried about some show that's on tv. IMO if you have to watch tv when you go camping stay home what the point. Go camping to get away from all that not take it with you then you may not get so upset. You would hate me cause I wouldn't care. Or not cause I usually never stay in campgrounds.

Ok guess i will end this debate..... i see by the responses that it seems i dont share the common courtesies people should have in my opinion....my fault.....thought just maybe some people would like to show some courtesy to others that they may expect in return. But to each their own i suppose, guess whatever you all are doing is far more important then what anyone else may be doing. Happy Camping, but dont expect any courtesy from me.
