I also noticed that the people that put there generators as far from their trailers as possible (sometimes closer to mine then theirs) are usually the same ones that let their kids and dogs run through other peoples campsites and think everyone wants to hear their music.

My plan for the next power outage is to move into the trailer. Last time we had no power for four days in the dead of winter ( snow storm, atypical Vancouver ). Huddled in the front room, which has a wood burning fire place.
Makes more sense to move to the driveway. Take some food to the trailer fridge, leave taps on at a trickle so they don't freeze. Trailer isn't that much smaller than the house.
My Honda 1000i will keep battery topped up.

Was at Pfeffer State Park in Big Sur, CA last week-an iconic campground that we have stayed at a fair amount over the last 30 years. Last week a nice enough camper from Myrtle Beach was running his open frame generator which I think is usually used for running an airless? Annoying to say the least.

How about calling in an airstrike?
