Thanks for reply. Is there such a thing as "bear spray"? I'll have to check that out. LOL. Someone else suggest Wasp/Hornet Sprap. It sprays upto 25 feet away.

My only concern with using wasp or hornet spray is will it injure/maim the eyesight of the perpetrator....but then again if he's trying to get in my RV ...do I really care!!! I think it's a good idea to have some sort of protection if you're on the road by yourself.

Thanks for your reply and concern. Many times the victim has been turned into the bad guy when the attacker ends up suing the victim for attacking them. i.e. a farmer shot a man in the leg as he was caught leaving a barn with stolen items. Bad guy got a lawyer sued the farmer saying he was not an immediate threat to farmer or his family because he was in the process of leaving the scene and not near the house. The bad guy won farmer had to pay medical bills, etc.

I have always heard the following advice:

If you shoot someone who is trying to enter or leave your home, RV, etc..... drag them inside! Then they can't sue you.

My husband is still working so isn't always with me during our summer travels. He flys back and forth... 2 weeks at home... one week at our vacation spot. So, I'm alone in our motorhome quite a bit and usually feel pretty safe. However, I'm always in an RV park with neighbors close by.

I have one of those little red blinking lights that are designed to put on your belt as you walk.

When I'm alone in the MH, I put it on top of the dash and turn it on at night. From outside, it looks like the blinking red light from an alarm system.

Don't know what good it does, but it gives me a "false" sense of security and I sleep well.

I've not stayed alone in a Walmart or similar, so don't know how safe I would feel.

I put a curtain rod behind the driver/pax seats so I can pull a curtain closed without having to pull the windshield curtains. That way, if we pull into a place at night for a quick stop, we can just slip behind the curtain for some privacy without being seen from outside.
