It will usually work. Then i walk back to my camper and take off my Karate outfit i bought at Goodwill and then think the good Lord above i didnt get the tar beat out of me. A good attitude can go a long ways.
Was that conversation before or after the Segrams?.....

Give people the benefit of the doubt. On our first trip in the new travel trailer, we had a cool drizzly day. We spent the whole afternoon playing games with the kids, listening to music, and watching movies. I stepped outside to fire up the grill, and Nacho Libre was blasting for the whole campground. Somebody had put on inside and outside speakers.

We have learned over the years to try and choose campgrounds where there is less noise. Further from the city, and more wilderness seem to help.. but not always. We have also learned to go to the campground office to complain rather than take people on ourselves. Better they are told by the officials to turn it down or leave.. than have them mad at us.

You have to be careful with the outside speaker. I have a friend who was walking and could hear a x rated movie audio coming from the OS speakers.

This is exactly what I'm talking about. Either they don't realize (which may be excusable if amended when brought to their attention) or they don't care (inexcusable). It's like some people don't even realize that there are other people around who may have different wants/needs than their own. I just don't understand that mentality, and unfortunately sometimes I let it get under my skin.

LOL!! We don't bring 'those' movies along in the trailer, but this is one of my biggest fears when we're watching a movie at night. I find myself checking the speaker config 3-4 times during a movie, just about every time I refresh my 'beverage'. I would be absolutely mortified to find out my outside speakers were on!

I can sympathize with what you're saying about not wanting to be "that guy" any time you're in a campground. We actually experienced some yahoos this past summer who combined the loud, annoying music with language. All this while I was out with our 5 year old son. What made it even more ridiculous was that every time they spotted the local police or park wardens, they would turn it down to barely audible and I couldn't believe they could avoid getting caught all the time...that is, until the wardens did a walk-through at night and the offenders couldn't avoid being caught. End of problem when the drunken saps ended up bailing out the next day.

The biggest part of the problem of amplified music that is too loud is thoughtless or inconsiderate people. But I believe another part of the problem is the trend of so many trailer manufacturers to make exterior speakers standard. If at all, I think those should be an extra cost option. And the default setting of exterior speakers should be off, so that folks can't accidentally have them on.
