Why don't you offer to loan him an extension cord, explain the fumes situation, and ask him if he wouldn't move the generators to another location.

We all have to make an effort to get along.

Tried to do just that, but he flared up before I even had a chance. I understand that lots of folks rely on their generators, especially for air conditioning. But, the weather here is glorious and we are parked very tightly. I agree, we need to make an effort to get along.

Having a great time, fabulous weather, fireworks were as good as Ken said they would be. Solar is working even better than I hoped with one 100W panel, haven't even unpacked the generator.Click image for larger version

Our solar has worked great, too. Got down to 60% charge this morning, but it's back on the way to 100% with all this sun.

Perhaps someone would go to the balcony of the Balloon Museum and take a picture of all the Airstreams.

I've had this happen before, I think there needs to be a well established generator section!
I have no difficulty in asking someone to sit off a generator!
The weather is perfect, no need to heat or cool, there us no real need to run a generator, except for having bad batteries, which is remedied by buying new batteries! I'd talk to Linda or Jim. No need to suffer through this issue!

ID:	223736not that great a shot. Perhaps if you ask permission to go through the administrative offices door you could have better luck.

I find this amazing since we were there last year and since it was cool; we only ran our generator around dinner time just long enough to recharge the batteries. That was just an hour or so. Keeping them away from bothering other Airstreamers is just plain courtesy and they should be ashamed that they are able and allowed to intrude on your enjoyment.
