          Looking for security system recommendations for when I’m away from my RV (a gun won’t help in that situation). Thanks

              There are many security systems available—Ring, Arlo, Eufy—that I know RVers use. Most, if not all, of those require WIFI, so that’s something to think about if you regularly stay in areas with no connection. I have a Eufy camera. It starts recording when it detects motion, and a light turns on. It connects to a base inside, so there is no subscription fee, which is a plus. Its just a camera, no alarm goes off (They do sell alarms though).

              That said, oftentimes cameras, alarms, etc, won’t do much to deter a thief from a quick score. I’d recommend also getting a bolt down safe for valuables, changing the factory locks, and asking neighbors to watch your place while away. Nothing is fool-proof, but it all helps.

                  I just use those battery powered door alarms that you can get anywhere. You’ll want the ones with a remote so you can turn them on and off when outside the RV. They’re loud, so hopefully if somebody tries to come through the door, it would scare them off. Those and my dog.
