Like at Pine mountain last year we saw a trailer allowing it's grey water to just freely run from the RV...all over the dirt road we had to travel on. I would suspect this is a no no.
In Texas state parks usually have a fine posted for any dumping. We carry a portable tank for grey water. Has wheels and is towable at a very low speed. Better than moving the bus if it’s needed.

Always bring beer to share... Wait, maybe that's just my rule.

Perhaps this tip is for a different thread, but I strongly recommend a reliable and high quality 50 amp surge guard any time you are plugged into a landline. I have been to several parks where the integrity of the connection was not as advertised, prompting a warning light on my surge protector.

I also try not to leave first thing in the morning. On trips where this was not avoidable, I made every effort to inform my neighbors the night before...bearing goodies as a pre-emptive peace offering.

Lot's of great advice here. I'll share a mistake I recently made.

I have gotten in the habit of starting up my bird a few minutes before I'm ready to roll down the road so it has some time to get all aired up and whatnot. Normally, this is fine.

Well, at a campground we were at for one night, it didn't Dawn on me that the back end of my bus was pointing at someone else's campsite through a small line of trees. Well, apparently I fumigated the poor guys campsite.

I couldn't have avoided it completely, but I certainly could have been more mindful about it. Lesson learned.

Oh, and we sure see a lot of spousal battles going on when people are trying to park their RV. My advice is:

-Always walk a site and make a plan to park
-Think about all the hookups and doors you'll need to access
-Use walkie talkies
-Chill out
-And offer to help other people when they are struggling
