I don't own a weapon. I am planning on mounting a led flood light above the door. Otherwise my old gal starts right off and I will leave the area. Still haven't done any Boondocking so that is a different post.
I might be naive but I drove over the road for a few years and never had any one approach me or my rig. Except a Hooker and she took my NO THANK's and left.
This is what I am looking at purchasing,

That light is interesting, a little cheaper on Amazon when free shipping is factored into the cost. Quite a few reviews complaining about poor service from StarLights, the sensors not being durable, not being compatible with old power converters.

This is a concept proposed by Bill Mauldin. There may be legal ramifications if used.

I, for one, would REALLY appreciate the motion activated light option (on other rigs parked near me) instead of them leaving their porch light on all night.

I'm not really sure what most of these other suggestions have to do with the OP's original question. I would think that the suggestion for a deadbolt lock is on the money. Perhaps more than one (different keys) or another means to lock (like a bar on the inside). That said; I have to wonder about the places you are camping where that kind of security is needed.

Put a couple of these dummy M18s (on line for around $45) around your perimeter. Place a wire to and a sandbag behind each for realism.. Probably find them pilfered by morning

Starlight porch light is very poor quality. Sensors fell apart 11 months after installation. Looks like UV damage. Haven't called the company yet, just noticed it 2days ago. May try other system instead, and see how those work.

1bigmess - sorry, should have explained it was humor. Someone on a Ranger forum thought theses were "cool" to use as hitch covers and someone else noted that they will get the attention of police and would probably get you stopped.

SkiSmuggs - I think most of the Claymores that were fired towards Americans were not turned around by the VC but were improperly implaced "Uh, what does this "Front towards enemy" mean, the side as I look at sign, or the side toward the enemy, never mind, I'll work it out!" This is ongoing as humor at another Ranger Facebook forum: as in who pulled off the stupidest stunt and survived.

Oklahoma Personal Defense - The Myth of Wasp Spray

While I'm not going to get into the legal aspects of this except to say that by that logic, if you use a baseball bat to defend yourself, you are just as guilty of using a product in a manner not intended by the manufacturer . . . .

Anyway, the reason for my post is that I have personal, first hand experience that "Raid, Wasp & Hornet Spray", sku 4650001353 DOES NOT sting when it gets onto your face in IN YOUR EYES! Yes, first hand experience, or maybe I should say "I've seen it with my own eyes!" as I was using it to spray into a European Paper Wasp nest, missed the hole and it ricocheted right back into my face. No, I wasn't using safety goggles, I do now though. I didn't get any burning, feeling at all, washed my face with plenty of water, used the hose on my face and eyes for a few minutes, scrubbed my face with soap and water. No ill effects.

So, take it or leave it, I was a proponent of the whole "Wasp Spray" idea, but now am not BASED ON PERSONAL EXPERIENCE!

I DO like the idea of the fire extinguisher, but I also have an alternate plan . . . . but like others have said, if you are thinking of using that . . . fire extinguisher . . . . , then you must train and practice in it's use . . . .and be prepared to follow through after you pull out the . . . fire extinguisher . . . and actually USE it if needed.

I hope that the situation never arises, but if it does, I want to be ready.
