Rv security 2

The original RV SECURITY thread is dedicated primarily to guns. I thought there might be some ideas out there that would help those who choose to not be armed and/or to help us who are in avoiding situations where a weapon would be used.

For Example: I keep the truck key fob with itís emergency button close at hand, including next to the bed at night. Not only does it sound the horn and flash the lights on the truck but if we are still connected to the trailer, as in an overnight spot, the clearance lights on the trailer also flash. Quite a sight, I know because I accidentally activated it at 5:00AM in a campground. Took a minute to realize it was us and what seemed like 10 to get the fob out and button mashed to silence it.
Not sure if motor homes have this feature, but your toad parked nearby may.

Another: Keep valuables well away from windows and out of sight. RV windows are very often easy to unlock and screens easy to cut, causing packet books, laptops and other items to just up and leave especially during the night while youíre asleep.

How about a boat horn or wasp spray. I agree that most people that are using a gun for protection would be reluctant to use it. Where as a non lethal type of protection is more apt to be used in defense.

1) don't exaggerate the risks

2) join caravans or do your RV experience with a group

3) know about where you are going so you can avoid high risk areas
