    Nope, no quiet hours. If it's hot, we run ours all night. And it's usually hot. Our generator is directly under the bed, so we get the "massage bed" without putting quarters in the slot. After flying and recovering rockets all day, never had any trouble getting to sleep.

    Modern self contained RV generators are not a problem - the sound is well handled. If someone is running a generator that is excessively loud, either during the day or night, they might need to relocate to the far end of the field.

    We never have a problem i know of at AIRFest. I do not anticipate any issues for LDRS.

    We did some caravaning recently, at Thunda Downunder. First time we have used a caravan and a generator. They gen was put out the back, and we shut it off at 10pm just to be nice to everyone. Overnight temps in the van were not excessive. Fired it up in the morning around 8am for the coffee machine. During the day it wasn't on unless my wife wanted to watch a DVD.

    I suppose some people will be kind and others not so much.
