This is annoying!

I get the appeal of these lights if youíre hanging out having a good time, but when youíre in bed or inside watching TV I donít need your lights messing with my stargazing. I didnít come to a national park to have a night club atmosphere. What good does this light do when youíre inside, other than annoy people who are unfortunate enough to have to camp near you? Notice in the picture no one is outside this 5th wheel. D-bag move.

Yeah, some people just don't get it, so do he leave them on all the time every night?

This is just one more reason why I Boondock. I have a few ahole neighbors at home, I donít need to camp next to them too. And itís easier to bury bodies, theoretically speaking of course, in the boonies should a need arise.

That is one of the most annoying things about camping in an RV Park. I have an LED light strip under my awning and if we are camped even remotely close to someone I won't even turn them on.

Total d-bag move. That stuff irritates me to no end. Even just leaving the outside light over the door on over night gets me going. It was actually one of the reasons weíd purchased our current floor plan. Only one small direct facing window on the left side.

Some people really are clueless and donít mean any harm. Maybe they donít even realize it would bother anyone. Iíd say something in a tactful way if you cross paths tomorrow. Actually, Iíd try and say something tactful, but sarcasm would somehow boil over into it.

If you notice all of their connections are running under the 5'vr which tells me they are in the site backwards.

Could this be a first time owner on a shakedown and they don't know the ropes?

Maybe a little neighborly assistance would be appreciated.

Not necessarily. There is a few places we have been or go to that have all the utilities between two rigs, and one unit has them on the door side.

I too absolutely hate these lights. I wish they were much dimmer. It seems like those people who turn them on, leave them on all night long.

Life is too short, don't worry about a few lights... or pick campgrounds that have the sites well spaced out, so you're not next to someone...

It could be worse, they could be playing Rap music all night, to go along with the lights...

That's why they have wheels on them!

I think theyíre in backwards intentionally to take advantage of the shade, the other side of the side doesnít have any trees.

Looks like we share that trait.

I get enjoying your toys and having a good time, but when you go inside for the night thereís no reason to leave them on.

Too bright!

We just got a newer camper and it has lights like that on the front, though a little smaller in length. I turned those on last night when it was quite dark to check them out, and I thought, "When in the world would I turn these on?!" They're so bright. A dimmer switch would need to be installed to tame those things. Looks kind of neat, but way too bright.

Just another reason we like our local state parks.
Plenty of space and trees between us and the neighbours...

It's just part of the culture. And, IMHO, not a good part.

So many people are into, "hey, look at me!". Their motorcycles are loud because they think it makes them look sooo cool. Their car stereo systems are loud. Their boats are loud. And their cars.

And selfies. Talk about self absorption. In the 70's we traveled places and took pictures of the scenery and friends and families. Now, a picture of the scenery has to include a picture of your silly face. "Look, it's me at the beach".

A lit up RV is just another manifestation of the "look at me" culture.

C'mon folks, could you just mature a little. Just enough so I don't have to hear you or be annoyed by you.

Do you say the same thing about people who put up Christmas lights?

You are right on the mark. Itís all about ďmeĒ ó pretty selfish attitude.

Not really. Different thing. Sure, there's some element of "look at me" in it, but it doesn't annoy me.

I love Christmas lights, but if the trailer next to me in a campground was decorated like some of the houses Iíve seen, I would be an unhappy camper. Time and place for everything.

I would if where I live out in the country the guy down the road had his house lit up with them every night of the year in a blazing beacon of gaudiness. I think the average person goes camping to escape all the noise, neon and hustle of the city. It amazes me when I see just the opposite and people bring it with them.
