Leave something out half arse nice that you can afford to lose, other wise they will tear the heck out of it looking for your stuff, and they will find it.

I been thinking myself of leaving a decoy computer or wallet out on the couch if I'm at sketchy area.

I never leave anything that might look valuable out in plain sight, it invites opportunity break-ins.

For a number of paranoid years I had a burglar and fire alarm system. I bought it from the folks that installed my house system. It made a lot of racket as I put the siren inside the hitch and one inside the fiver.. The noise was horrible, so I believed it would drive someone out. After 10 years I retired the system as setting it, checking batteries, etc. got tedious. I don't regret the alarm system as while at work it gave me peace of mind. So you may want to look at a home wireless noisey alarm system.

Well, the old adage that there are no stupid questions certainly holds water here. All the answers here prove that there only stupid answers. And the trick here was to get others to divulge secrets and now everyone knows the hiding places in various motorhomes. Secret hiding places are supposed to be SECRET!

Kudos to the OP.

Do not forget the stash cans, such as soup or wd-40 type cans with false bottoms.

I have a small safe in the bedroom for large amounts of cash, gun, etc, but this is great if you just want a convenient place to stash a wallet or a bit of jewelry while you go for a swim or something and don’t want to lock down your whole site.

I have the perfect place, but I can't tell you because then I'd have to kill you!

get inexpensive safe, put a few items that make noise like jewelry and coins, open the bed cover and screw it down to floor with a couple of short screws from the inside. bad guy sees this, pries it up and thinks he scored. He most likely will take it away to open it.

There is always the engine bay.
Lots of black colored cans in there.
You could even put a rubber hose coming out the bottom to make it look like a reservoir.

Many small caches distributed rather than larger ones.

"Hide" some cash and old, outdated credit cards in a conspicuous place. Under a couch cushion, under the mattress, in the refrigerator, etc.

Most thieves are looking for a quick grab and go.

If they find something, they will normally leave in a hurry.
