While RV enthusiasts are often viewed as being predominantly honest individuals, those who travel or live in an RV should take precautions to keep themselves, their vehicle and their possessions safe.
RV expert and author Mark Polk says that RVs may be targeted by criminals since they often contain several expensive items all in one place, such as laptop computers, GPS units, jewelry and cameras.
Taking basic safety measures, like locking doors, securing valuables and staying in well-populated areas can help to lower the chance of being victimized by thieves.
Using a product like a Portable Wedge Alarm may also be helpful.
This product wedges against a door or window to monitor unwanted entry in an RV or at home.
It features a hook and loop bottom that grips to rugs or can be used with double-stick tape pads to adhere to window frames or hard floors.
When the Portable Wedge Alarm
is moved, it emits a piercing 120 decibel alarm.
The product comes with a one-year warranty and a 12-volt battery is included.
Priced under $15, this small alarm may offer added security for RV owners wherever they go.
