I doubt it, for two reasons.Thought I posted in this thread
a truly large park may have sites that were pre-paid but the renter no-showed.
I still have this entire section of the park for myself. I really like it here. I prefer here to the areas in this same park that do have a sewer connection. I like being here alone, away from the crowd.One of the parks I visit has (Counting cabins) over 700 sites. Site selection is 1st show up first chose, but you have to "reserve" a choice in advance. You can not reserve a site. just the ability to pick a site.
Not on the RV-style pedestal at my house. There's just the one feed from the house, though it fully supplies the 50 amp service.But how many tents need 12,000 watts of power? Or is it more? Can the 50 amp (each leg, L1 plus L2) and 30 amp and 20 amp outlets all be used at the max at the same time?
Depends on the wire size feeding the pedestal. One otherwise very nice mobilehome/RV park I stayed in had pedestals with 50 amp outlets. These were fed from common areas with electric meters for several sites. Each meter had a pair of 20 amp circuit breakers directly below it to protect the 12 gauge wires running to each site so you couldn't draw more than 20 amps off of each leg of the 50 amp socket.But how many tents need 12,000 watts of power? Or is it more? Can the 50 amp (each leg, L1 plus L2) and 30 amp and 20 amp outlets all be used at the max at the same time? At 120 VAC that would be a total of 150 amps or 18,000 watts. Okay, minus the 20% for safety=14,400 watts. I don't think many tents will need anything near that.

That much is obvious. But you answered my question anyway.Depends on the wire size feeding the pedestal.
Unoccupied spaces do not mean the spaces are available. People have PAID reservations and the park is not going to veer from them up.I am here at the Floridan RV Park. Tom SeilerBird and I just had lunch together.
This is a very nice RV Park. Probably the best I have stayed in. And Tom has the best spot in the entire park, a shady place right next to the river (and almost no mosquitoes here!).
This is a very large park. The type one can get lost in. I have nobody near me and there are more spaces available.
Yeah, many more, but don't waste your time calling. They will say they have none available, yet they do.
I called this place twice and also emailed them. No spaces, they tell me three different times.
Tom SeilerBird, who has been here for ten years, askes in the office, and they have many spaces available.
Many, with electricity and water but no sewer connection I don't even care about that. My tanks are big enough besides they have a dump station here that I can use.
So either the employees are too lazy to bother with those not renting by the month, or they just don't want more money. Or what else could it be? Seems strange for a business to not want easy money.
And nobody who stays monthly would want a space with no sewer connection.
So what type of BS is going on here?
Below is a pix I just took of my RV here. Now I have to con Tom into taking a better pix for me here and I will use it in my Avatar.

Not sure if it's current, but for a long time RVIA code prohibited 240 volt appliances in RVs. Not only would they not work if the RV was plugged into lesser power (single leg 30 or 20 amps via an adapter feeding both hot legs) but they could be dangerous because feeding both hot legs from a single source produces 0 volts between them, making a 240 volt appliance appear to be de-energized even though it's electrically live.Do any RVs use 240 VAC for anything?
I sure hope when the staff gets back from Christmas you go ask them about all the apparent vacancies. It's pretty funny all of us trying to guess at their practices with really nothing to go on.
I had the same thought. They do need somebody to pick up the trash in some areas of the park. Around this RV, I cleaned it up myself.Are they short on ground staff needed to keep the place cleaned up, trash collected etc. etc.
Good point. Perhaps they do it this way because of previous bad experiences that are not even worth 25K$ per month to deal with. But if somebody here such as SeilerBird knows somebody, that will change things. That makes sense because problems are less likely when somebody they already know is looking for a spot for a buddy or relative or whatever.I would guess that "evicting" people from an RV park is just as hard as an apartment.
Not that I am aware of. I make my own coffee inside my RV and, yes, it is too hot for me, but not dangerously hot. I won't get 3rd degree burns from it.Do they sell coffee and is it boiling hot!
