Top Tips to Protect Your Stuff: Choose an RV Security System

by Jessica Wilson Blog Writer

You love to go off on road trips with family and friends on your RV. You adore the idea of being mobile, of just packing stuff into your RV, and heading off for adventures and parts unknown. All that is well and good. But before you go off on your road adventures, make sure you and yours are safe in your mobile home. Installing an RV security system is a must. Here are helpful tips on how to choose the best one.

Choose Your Parking Spot

Don’t just park your RV anywhere. Look for a secure campground or RV park. Research your options carefully. Find reputable and safe spaces for your RV. You might think it’s much more romantic or easier if you sleep in remote, dark areas, but that could prove troublesome. There’s safety in numbers so find a crowded place where you can park and sleep.

Pick a Secure Storage

If you don't live in your motorhome, then you’ll need to pick a solid location when you store your RV. Parking it somewhere safe must be at the top of your list. If there are burglars around, they’ll pick the easiest locations to break in. That’s why it’s not safe to leave your RV in full view of everyone in your garage.

Change Your Locks

You’d think those locks will offer more than a flimsy defense against burglars. However, if they hold a key to one of the older RV trailers, that key will also open your RV’s door. If you’re driving around your RV with those standard locks, then you’re inviting that sort of risk into your motorhome. Don’t let that happen. Replace them with Trimark RV locksWith a sturdy lock in place, criminal elements will have a hard time breaking into your RV.

Pick the Right One

Don’t just pick the first Trimark locks you find that’s designed for RVs. Make sure you consider a few things. For instance, is the lock the right size? If it’s too big, then that will only draw attention to your motorhome, which is the last thing that you want to happen. If the lock is too small, though, it might provide enough protection and security. Think about that when you shop around for locks.

Look for Reviews

Find out what other customers are saying about the locks. Are they happy? What kind of problems or issues came up? Was it easy to install? How long does it last? If you’re lucky enough, some of the reviews will answer these questions for you.

Use a Security Camera

Adding a camera to your RV is a sound security measure. Check out which ones have the features you need. Many require a landline or internet connection to work, though. You’ll have to factor that in when you check out camera options. Don’t forget to consider your budget. How much will it cost? Is that reasonable? Don’t get a camera that’s fully loaded with features you won’t need anyway. Pick one that’s enough to answer your security needs.
