Electric Impact Wrenches

I have decided electronic impact wrenches in a CG are annoying. This year everyone seams to be using them. You can hear them everywhere and from a good distance.

I've noticed many using electric impact drills to operate their manual stabilizer jacks. I can in no way explain why someone would use an impact drill on their stabilizer jacks; electric drill, yes, impact, NO!

I use an impact wrench because of convenience, one socket for the stabilizers, one socket for the lug nuts on the trailer and another for the tv, all in a neat easy to carry package.

We as a society are becoming more and more about me...heck with anyone else. If it bothers someone, too bad. And not just on impact tools, on so many issues. Arriving late and yelling directions, to lights capable of bring planes in and so many other obnoxious actions. Thank heavens i'm an old fart and won't have much longer to put up with this selfishness.

To some, only they are important. Perhaps they are all politicians..

I use one.
About 3 to 5 seconds per jack.
Is that really so bad?

I was out camping a few years ago and I had the great idea that the next time out, I was going to bring my electric drill to drop the stabilizers.
Thankfully a few days later a new arrival showed up in the site next to ours and pulled out his drill and annoyed the heck out of me putting his stabilizers down. Made me change my mind on the wisdom of that one.... I mean really - is it that hard to hand crank them down - it's my eight year old sons job to do it anyways.

3-5 seconds each X 4 per trailer X 20 or so trailers = annoying

I can see where that would be annoying. Yet, there are things that everyone does that annoys someone else...even if they themselves don't see it as annoying. Someone who gets upset over impact wrenches may walk their dogs and not pick up after it....or be terribly inquisitive when walking by someone else's trailer...or leave early in the morning...or have a truck that belches black smoke...or cooks something smelly outside...or talks loudly outside...etc. etc. etc.

I think we should all be completely alike in every way.

Then we would be so completely bored we would all go nuts.

Imagine a world full of completely crazy people who can't find a thing about anyone else to bitch about.

Being brand new to the camping lifestyle, I try to be as quiet and respectful as possible while learning the ins and outs of setup, breakdown, and CG etiquette etc. I use a battery operated drill to raise and lower my stabilizers mostly because an old back and hip injury prevents me from bending and squatting for extended periods but I am more worried about the power tongue jack disturbing someone especially if I arrive at a site late. It makes much more noise than my battery operated drill.
