We've been in several units where the mounting of the safe was so flimsy that ripping it out to be opened later at one's leisure would have been no problem.

Well, my batteries were tested at 1.53 after 18 months in use. Now, a battery voltage means not a lot unless the battery is under load..... so it is possible that the electronics of the safe would put a heavy load on the batteries and drag the voltage to sag down to an less impressive number, but it is a bit hard to believe that the electronics of the combination circuitry would do that. I never have seen the red and green lights on simultaneously so I leaned something if that is the key indicator that the batteries are in need of swapping.

The rv safes serve a purpose but real security in my eyes is my recently finished 1891 double door Mosler Screw Door Bank Safe. With laminated chrome steel burglar plate, 5" thick doors, internal time locks, and dependable Yale/Mosler friction fence locks, it is a fortress.







Unfortunately, it's size and 4000+ lb weight will require a couple mods to an Entegra...

Just changed mine today after two years. They seemed fine but why take a chance.
