OP, is there a consumer advocate on one of your local news stations?

Nearly every city has them. They often manage to get situations like yours straightened out.

Take another look at the original complaint: "Loud music going all day long. Cars on the street, or parking in other people's driveway when they are not home. I can hear the music in my home from across the street.."

Do you really think some consumer advocate is going to jump on this? Certainly the local newspaper, or the police or the trailer park office are also going to avoid getting involved. It might be different if the noise occurred late at night or the neighbors were destructive or engaged in illegal activity.

It sounds like the OP is having an issue with "rednecks" who he feels are below his social status. Clearly he is living in a down and out trailer park and he is not going to encounter a preponderance of high class neighbors. He is also upset because many of his neighbors are renting and did not have to purchase a mobile home like he did. I am sure the park management would prefer to sell the homes and collect park fees. The OP's complaints are not going to change the situation.

The OP's problem is why we are planning on RVing. If you don't like the neighborhood, its simply a matter of hitching up to the truck and we're gone.

stealthrabbit had good advice. you don't even know if the state attorney has eyes and ears around the problem. Also, our news has a 'whistle blowers hotline' and they really investigate. Maybe your's does too.

I did not realize our att general was on top of undoing the wrong until i got a postcard to sign up for the lawsuit they were doing. A couple years later I received a few thousand as part of the lawsuit. No, it didn't make up for the loss of my home, but it sure felt good to know she was fighting for us.
