I think it's a good reason to have a W/D in your RV but, not a good reason to stay away from campgrounds.

If this story is true, they don't know what happened for sure, but if it is then we shouldn't be scared of campgrounds. This type of anger, if true, could happen anywhere. I hope that this was not a case of dryer rage

C;mon man. Like this only happens in campgrounds? If this scares anyone, they should look for a new hobby. Or at least spend their vacations, in their driveway, inside the locked up RV, curled up in the fetal position.

Could have just as easily been the local grocery store, no reason to stay out of campgrounds.

I have been pretty agggravated at people that leave their laundry in the dryer while they go back to the RV to watch a soap opera. But it is easier to just take the clothes out of the dryer, as long as they are done and go ahead and use it. Sure I have seen some irrate campers over this, but then they aren't violent just stupid. You will see the same thing any where, not just a campground. You just can't fix stupid no matter where you find it.

And here we go campground bashing? I agree with others--scary situations can and do happen everywhere. If we all stayed away from campgrounds they'd go out of business and then what?!

Not anywhere totally safe anymore, even your home. An acquaintance was shot and killed while eating dinner in a Denny's in Houston last week. Just picked the wrong time to be there eating dinner, as it was being robbed.

Campgrounds are some of the safest places there are, IMHO. Mostly families, older folks much of the time, not in poverty (at least not till they bought their RV) Suspect we have all met others that the thought of doing something like that has occurred to us. A few years back, I was in a campground laundry when a middle aged woman came in and announced to everyone that she was with the caravan that had just arrived and they had priority use of the laundry facility and asked everyone to take their stuff out of the washers and dryers till she was finished. She seemed surprised to hear the language that was directed toward her by the others in the laundry. That could have been mob violence very easily. LOL

Seems like a reason to go with your DW to the laundry when she does the laundry.
