Solar? alarm?

I just purchased a 2011 Access 26Q and was surprised that there wasn't any type of alarm system. Do most people put in some type of alarm? Do you think it is necessary? What type did you put in?

Also, I am interested in a solar panel to keep the 12v system charged when not hooked up. I plan on doing a lot of camping with out hookups. Have you done this and if so, how hard was it to hook up?

Welcome to the forum!

It is kind of surprising but I think alarm systems are the exception rather than the rule with most RVs. Even in fairly large coaches I don't think they're common... plus most mfgrs don't even take advantage of using the three cameras already installed for security purposes... ie when you're inside at night a fairly cheap feature could allow us to see what's going on outside via the camera but I've only seen this on very high end coaches.

I'm sure you can find a lot of info here on solar for boondocking but I don't do much of that and only have a little 10 watt maintenance solar panel.

Good luck...
