Couldn't find any locally, so I ordered from Sears. They had them sent from an outside vendor and got here the day before I left for that trip. They're about as fragile as a Xmas tree ornament. I store them the the syrofoam blocks and boxes they came in.

Our "canine doorbells" would be the first clue that something bad could happen if we opened the door. (Nothing would, but what do they know?)

I have those too! They hear things before it ever gets close to the coach. I turn on the lights (I have a remote control on inside) that lights up the outside and windows, to see out, on each side of the door.

They have a tiny solar panel, on-off switch, rechargeable battery, light sensor and an LED inside them.

What a great idea ! My wife is Italian, not only is she Italian, she is Sicilian. Anyone caught screwing around with her Pink Flamingo Yard Art is doomed !!! It would not be pretty !

A buddy of mine had a problem with someone helping themselves to his garden and fruit trees at night.

He asked around with the neighbours, nobody knew or saw anything.

He bought one of those motion-activated lawn sprinklers they sell for scaring deer away. Second night it was out he heard a female scream around 1am.

He went out to find the sprinkler running and wet foot prints leading down his driveway and across the street to the nurse across the road who works afternoons and gets home around 1am.

He knocked on the door and asked if she needed a towel.

I image those things would work pretty well with an on-demand pump too.


Personally, I prefer the McGyver method, a motion sensor that lights the fuse on a pack of M-80 firecrackers.

It happened!

Well, it was over a year ago that I originated this post and sure enough I had an incident happen on my trip home from Florida last week. We had dinner and then stayed overnight at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Dunn, NC off of RT 95. At 1:00AM my wife heard a knock on the door and woke me up. I peeked out the door to see who was there. The inside of the coach was dark and the parking lot was lit so I could see out without anybody seeing in. I saw this character standing there waiting for me to answer (which I was not going to do) and he knocked again. After about 3-5 minutes of silence he walked off and left. In the morning I asked another RV owner who had also stayed there if they had a knock and yes they had! The wife had opened the door slightly..big no, no!! Fortunately all that happened was the apparent vagrant asked for money, she said no and he moved on..probably to our coach. In the morning at breakfast I reported the situation to a couple local police also having breakfast and they felt they knew who the vagrant was as he had been hanging around the general area. I think the important lesson here is do not open the door for any reason.. you are safe inside. I thought it was interesting that after all the talk this post had generated that sure enough the day came when I had to deal with it and all ended well.

Sorry this want make a good movie. (Does confirm or safe zone is where we make it) Glad it turned out good-mayby just the loss of sleep.
