I don't know guys...Three days ago I pulled up and both "future neighbors" came out to greet me. It doesn't bother me. I just start my proceedure/check list all over again and try not to hurry.
I agree with JandC, like he said,it was almost dark and he needed to set up as quick as possible.
He didn't have time to socialize,plus he was probably tired from driving.

Not rude at all. When we were backing into the spot we're in now, we had to back around a trailer. Essentially, we had to back off the street and back in a U turn to get in our spot. We had so many "helpers" that I finally had to get out and tell the crowd to let me wife give me the only directions. Some got mad a walked away, but as you, we've got a routine that works. After being here 5 months, one little old man still won't talk to me. All I can say is, he'll just have to scratch his mad spot and get glad. I was as polite as possible, but I was getting frustrated with all the "help".
I've never had that difficult of a spot, but the same problems from 5 or so of my good tent camping friends and the first pull on the SOB 5th. Had to be diplomatic, even to my M-I-L, but now they know to just wait until I'm in position, the motor is off, and then come talk. Usually we have lots of time to setup before dark, or I might be a bit more forward if we're running out of light. I do like going over after we're setup and take a beer or wine to break the ice. Most people seem to understand.

When we first started RVing with our fifth wheel 10 years ago, I thought men would come out of the woodwork to "help" my husband back into our spot because we looked young. I would be out there with a walkie talkie and only say anything if he needed to correct or stop. And so many times someone would come and try to take over.

But I've let my hair go grey and they still seem to feel the need to come and "help". I dunno, we must just draw "helpers" to us like moths to a flame. It's slightly annoying, but my husband is an extreme introvert, so he only pays attention to the job at hand and my instructions which are nowadays coming over our Bluetooth headsets.

Yep, happened to me this past October down near San Diego. Pulled in and backed into the spot; dropped the front jacks and raised it to clear the hitch; pulled the lever and removed the Emerg brake cable; dropped the tailgate.... just as I did that, the neighbor came over asking me some questions, taking my feeble brain away from what I was doing...got back into the truck and pulled away.....POW!! Yep, your right, forgot to unplug the power cord from the inside bed of the truck and it flew back almost hitting the wife in the head. Course it ruined the socket but plug and cable were okay. Now just have to drape the cord over the tailgate to the bumper socket. Lesson learned....you get into a routine, stick with it...

Going back and reading original post from 2013 was interesting, but nothing has really changed John. Our "routine" changed this year when we changed styles of RV's, but we still have to do things in a certain order and use caution. So far so good. Sorry to hear you were victimized for being too friendly!

One NEVER bothers someone when they are setting up or hooking up. Not only is it good manners but they might ask you to do something.

"Don't know what is the matter with us we never have that problem." we posted this in 2014 and it still stands.Helen and I have been at this for a very long time and we do have a set routine. Why is it no one bothers us....Helen can be mean looking Irish person maybe that is it.

Helen and I have been as of late hobbled her with a fractured knee and me with a flair up of arthritis in the knee and we do not move very well. We have had several messages from fellow MOCers going to the NE rally that not to worry they will get us set up.That is MOCers helping MOCers and very welcome. Thanks guys...

LOL! I like to watch people when backing in, you never know you could learn from their mistakes. I had a guy ask me today when he was about to back in if I could do it for him, and that was not the first time I had been asked. I simply say I will guide you but you will never learn until you do it your self. Shortly after that, same issue, too funny !

Just start talking politics or religion real fast, whatever their opinion of things, take the opposite side. They'll get so upset with you, they'll leave on their own.

I just ignore all the "experts" watching the action! Any that want to comment can just go ahead because I ignore them and usually continue to ignore them after we set up. Finally, I still use a check list after 13 years on the road. I have not seen many others using a checklist to get it correct.
