we see at many state and federal cg's that no alcohol can be consumed outside the rv
so like many they use insulated coffee mugs and add the beam and coke and go about life as normal
when i consumed we often had over three liters of beam and cases of dt. coke and cases of amber bock.
i for one would have issue with any leo wanting to search my rv. period, ever. they better have a very compelling reason to ask or require a search.
if your pulled over, meet them at the door outside with your info, simply dont give them a reason to be inside, even innocent folks go to jail because a leo "thought" they saw something they did not.
leo's arent perfect, and if your wrongly arrested....you still have to go to court and pay $$ to be free. then pay lawyers to set it right....where is the leo? he/she is at home free.
customs crossings are a whole nuther animal.
all the places we have been, we have never been pulled over or asked for a search.
there are also parts of the ADA that protect disabled persons from over zealous leo's
your domicile is where you lay your head, regardless of its rolling or fixed.
this gives you some added protection, not much but some. especially if you are being accosted by a bad guy/girl
all in all your attitude if stopped, sets the tone of what happens next.
always be polite, but vigil about your rights.
a town near us wants your ssn on tickets if your stopped.....NOPE not from this guy. they already have your dl# and address? why a ssn? he said as a second form of ID. pure bologna.
in tx your dl will give them everything they need to know.
