Usually where we camp no sites are electric. So things stay pretty dark as people try to save their battery.
Wow some pretty inconsiderate campers where you camp. I have had lots of partiers at times around us, but everyone shuts their jennys off at the specified times.Doesn't always help. I posted a few weeks ago about a campground we stayed at, there was no electric at the entire campground (even the water pump was solar). Some people just ran a generator constantly during non-quiet hours so they could light up their sites like a parking lot, and then sit inside.
That's when you hold a "New Camper Owner" seminar.
And all 10 are obsessed with leaving every exterior light on from dusk to dawn. This sucks. So much for inebriated star gazing. Covidiots I presume. This place looks like the aliens have landed.
I usally have a talk with the nebibours that leaves the light on all night. Unfortunately i have had to do it multiple times now. Its not too bothersome in the new TT but in the pup it was miserable!Alas it is not just the new folks these days. I have seen campers with their exterior lights on for years. It used to be that everyone had an amber porch light, and it wasn't super bright and you could live with it. Over the last 5-10 years though LEDs have taken off. Now every trailer has accent lights under the awning, under the body, at the steps, and often on the nose/tail and opposite side, and they are not low intensity either. With a TT most people don't even notice how bright their lights are, since they retire inside and the brightness doesn't bleed through the windows near as much as a pup experiences.
Same thing with lanterns - the basic Coleman gas lantern did a fine job, but wasn't super bright. Now there are Northstar lanterns that are roughly twice as bright (I know, I have a couple myself), but the LED lanterns have really taken off. Now you can use a lantern with 2-3 times the brightness of a Northstar, let it run all night and recharge during the day. I have even seen tent campers set up construction worklights to light up their campsite at a state park - talk about bright!
