Exclamation Fulltiming Pet Peeves

I know we're not the only ones with fulltiming or rving pet peeves.


  • The folks who like to pull right up next to you when the RV park is empty. I promise we like people and enjoy meeting new folks. However, no we do not want to peek out our kitchen window and see a full moon! Unless of course it's actually dark outside. Why must you park right next door if you have 35+ other spots to choose from?

  • RV park grounds keepers who insist on firing up the lawn mowers or weed whackers at the crack of dawn and want to mow or weed whack in our space when they have many many acres that they could've mowed or weeded first!

  • Unexpected company! If it's three in the morning and it's not an emergency then don't even think about coming and ringing our door bell or knocking on our door loud and obnoxious waking us up and the whole RV Park trying to make friends. We will never be friends!

  • The borrower who barrows and never brings item back. Only way you get it back, (if you get it back) is to go fetch it yourself.



What annoys you?

Thumbs down

Drives me crazy when there is

  • Loud Music especially if it includes a obnoxious crowd.
  • People who think they own the place and they want to come up and tell you that you're doing something wrong or that you need to do this or that.
  • Aggressive dogs off a leash. I don't mind dogs but I don't need someones aggressive dog coming up to our coach barking and being aggressive or pissing on my tires!

How about the Rude ones that open their Slide(s) into my space, I call them Sliders.

I have found a way to keep the "Sliders" at bay. I set up an Easy up Framework at the Pedestal, really is amazing how that keeps most people away!

RV Parks that want extra $$ for Dogs! We were thinking about stopping at Ventura RV Resort but wait $4.00 per Night per Dog! No way

When traveling and leaving enough room to stop but they have to cut me off and hop in my lane!

The extra fee for a dog is bogus. It's not a hotel for cryin out loud!
