Joe, I read RV forums all of the time. I recently retired from law enforcement. Just sitting at my keyboard, within 6 minutes, I had your full name and your wife's full name, your DOB, POB and physical address, looks like you only have a few neighbors on the private driveway and looks like lots of trees. It would be easy to drive up to your address and have some BS story cooked up while looking to see if your 5th wheel is home or not.
The average burglar (not a robber) is in a residence for no more than 2 or 3 minutes but they could take longer knowing they are inside a senior RV'ers house and the RV is gone. The info you put out on the 'net is more than enough for scammers and ID thieves. Please consider NEVER posting your DOB etc on-line.

Good luck with your future identity!

Bruce

Joe--It's probably closing the barn door after the cow has been stolen...but consider having an admin close this thread and "clean it up" to remove your personal info posted by others.

Because I'm a young, slight, attractive female who would hate to have to shoot someone in the face for accosting me.
