Mechanics, explain this to me...
Permalink  
 


On the other side of my backyard fence is a senior RV park. For the most part they are pretty good neighbors, and I think I would rather have an RV on the other side of my fence than a two-story duplex townhouse structure that was originally going to be built there. At least with the RV I can still see the sky out my back windows. So here's the problem: Periodically the old man in the RV will run his engine at high RPMs for an hour or more. With my windows closed, it still sounds like a jet engine in my backyard. I have had a few conversations with the gentleman and there's always a story: "I need to charge the batteries" "The slide outs only work when the engine is operating at full RPMs" etc. I don't hear other RVs in the area doing this, only the one parked a few feet from my fence. Is all this noise really necessary? Can't he put his batteries on a charger without revving the engine for an hour or more? Shouldn't slide outs work without revving the engine? Will I ever be able to enjoy my patio in the morning on what's going to be a very hot day?

The slide-outs I've seen on Rv's don't need electrical power to operate. They work pretty much effortlessly with a human powered crank. As for charging batteries, tell him to look into solar collectors. They're a bit pricey at the start but pay for themselves quickly.

The old dude might be reliving the days of his youth, when he probably drove a souped-up jalopy and spent a lot of time revving its engine.

I don't suppose he has a cat.
