I travel with 2-6 Belgian Tervuren always so never worry about security when on the road.

At home the MH lives next to the dog yard and in view of my living room and the neighbor who runs outside w his gun drawn at any noise after dark :-)

Between that and a good policy with a low deductable for comprehensive I just figure we've got it covered. :-)

when we are away from the rv, we set a blinking red bicycle tail light in the kitchen window as an indication that we have an alarm.

we have three big dogs, one being a protection trained German Shepherd and a sticker on the door that says "you may get in, but you won't get out". That's alarm enough.

We also used a 4-42 alarm. Four feet--forty two teeth.

A friend of mine tried a unique alarm system. Actually his DW's idea. He bought a pair of used work boot at a Goodwill, size 14, and put them next to the door. He added a very large dog food bowl, and a 5/16" stainless dog chain attached to a yard spike. The bowl was labeled Samson! The sign said Beware of dog, chain length 10'. He had some people wouldn't even walk by the entrance!!! 😜

My brother God rest his soul had a great alarm. He wored the metail screen door to 120 volts.

At 2o amps that's 2400 watts of screeming before you fall off. He only used it once after that the cops told his he had to post warning signs so no one else got accidentally electrocuted. The guy dI'd live but was hospitalized for several weeks. He tried to sue but the judge wasn't very sympathetic. He got nothing!

When is the last time you saw someone stealing the tires or radio from a car with an alarm going off?

I've got a basic one on mine. It is wired into the house wiring and is triggered by the voltage drop from the steps operating. Didn't cost much and was easy to install.

I never thought of that. Simple, but effective!

I'm more worried about home break ins while we're home. Those tend to be more violent hence my service weapon in the mh. I'm ex air police and my brother in law is a marine who served in the first gulf war. He'll have the 410 in the living room. He's from North Carolina. Not to many successful push in robberies in N.C. too many armed homeowners.

I agree, hence I always carry. I have read both on this forum and others, how during the middle of the night, perpetrators enter a home/motor home while the owners are asleep and all sorts of things going wrong. I prefer to even the odds and have an alarm that will go off upon attempted entry, just in case my dog for some reason doesn't hear them.
