I like the hook your gas filler neck to the black tank idea. I don't think they will come for seconds.

I live in a small southern town where the cops don't put up with theives, vandals and other such mal-contents. They will be happy to assist in finding this sorry piece of crap and dealing with him/her accordingly. As an example, they tracked down a couple of kids that vandalized my mailbox, brought one of them by my house (with his Dad) and gave him the option of either going to jail or paying me for the mailbox (my choice). I took the $$ and let his Dad handle the kid's rehabilitation.

I love Small Town, USA. When we had 6 goats show up at our property and start eating our flowers and shrubbery I called the county sheriff. He came out and asked what I wanted him to do. I said to take the goats downtown and "grill" them.....to see where they lived. After he smiled at me we got in the cruiser and drove around till we saw a neighbor who had a goat pen with the fencing knocked down. I waited till school was out and the teenager who lived there came over to retrieve his 4-H project goats. He even offered to pay for any damages the goats might have caused!!

Yes, Mayberry RDF is for me .

I would buy a bunch of RV fuel doors and install them on the side of the coach. Make it a funny game if youre going to "surveil" it.
Just had the coach broke into over a thousand dollars of stuff taken, made a police report. They did not seem too interested .

Were you on the road when you had the break in? Any damage to the coach? How did they get inside? I can't imagine I would do if confronted with this situation while on the road.
