Keeping Your RV Safe

Your RV is both your home and your means of transportation. That means you have to follow home safety and vehicle safety at the same time. It may sound like a lot, but it isn’t. Keeping your RV safe is crucial to your health and security and is easier than you’d think it would be. All it takes is a little common sense. 

Keeping the Burglars at Bay

Burglars operate under cover of darkness, so keep your RV well-lit. Something with a timer or motion detector would be ideal. Burglars will avoid RVs with dogs. Even a little one can make a lot of noise that can draw attention to an unwanted visitor. If you don’t want to invest in a dog, you can put up a "Beware of Dog" sign or rig up a barking motion detector. Security cameras work great for catching a burglar in the act. Even a decoy camera can make a burglar think twice before trespassing. Factory locks are a welcome mat for anyone with an easily duplicated key. Change them. Better yet, go for a keyless entry that can only be opened with a code. As always, keep your doors locked and valuables where they’re not easily seen. Keep especially vigilant at rest stops. 

Road Safety

Plan your trip. You’re better off parking in a lot specifically for campers than squatting in a public parking lot. You’re driving an unusually heavy vehicle, so go a bit slower than you would in a car. When the RV is in motion, ensure everyone is wearing their seatbelt.
