I'm getting upset at making a point of staying in an RV park that has Wifi listed in their ads as one of their amenities and then finding the site I have, gets no reception...nor do many others! The latest was Orange Grove RV Park in Bakersfield, CA which advertised Wifi in their TL ad, but when I checked in I found it was 5 possible sites. I believe that if a park offers wifi they need to correctly advertise that it is "limited" or "throughout."

I think we need to complain to the campgrounds and TL and Woodalls, etc. about this deception...which not necessarily intentional, makes it inconvenient for those of us who count on periodic opportunities to check in with the 'net.
