My toyhauler was broken into so I put deadbolts on the rear and a padlock with a removeable hasp.
I used carraige bolts so they would not be removable as mounted.
Got it at Home Despot.

Those are good locks. Can't get a bolt cutter in there.

Looks like a crow bar here would pop the latch off.

I had one of these inexpensive motion detector alarms in my last motorhome. Although no one ever broke into the motorhome, the alarm is real loud when tested. It also comes with alarm decals for the windows. wireless motion detector | wireless alarm systems | wireless security systems

Ya your right right they would'nt read it. I don't want to scare them away I want to catch them in the act and they will wish they never did it.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

The two ideas I like best (one actually exists) are a cd player or a statue.

The statue actually exists far as I know (I recall reading of it long time ago) It's a dog, one of the "Guard Dogs" breads like a shepard, Terrier or Rot. It is posed in full "Attack" pose.. The dog is plastic,, The eyes, however, are real eyes,,,, even if they are lectronic (motion detectors) and the warning growl.. That's real too (Though digitally recorded and reporduced)

As I said, this product was advertised perhaps 20 years ago

The other one would be a CD.. When entry happens it starts playing, say one minute of digital silence (it does not get much more silent than that) then one sound effect.

The sound of a Shot Gun being racked.

As far as I know,,, Nobody makes this system (And if they do I want a cut)

Seriously.. You can get motion and other "intrusion" detector systems that will "Phone home" When an intrusion is detected.. DO however be aware that you should NOT have these call 9-1-1 without permission from the police.. There is a little federal law that says they can fine you 500 bucks per call even if it's legit.

Have it call you.. then you can relay the call. (or call a monitoring center)

We are forgetting, fiberglass/ aluminum, paneling and Styrofoam to stop someone from cutting a hole in the side. Time to find a safer place to keep our units.

I don't lock mine; the damage caused by some one breakinging in would cost more to repair than any item that might be stolen.
Example' two storage and 10 feet of side on my motor were replaced; $18,000

That's not logical. They walk in, steal your goods and knowing you are going to replace them, come back and steal your new goods. DUH! Where do you live?
