Home Security For Your Residence On The Road

Article Contributed By Sally Writes Statistics from RVIA show that the number of RVs in the US has reached record levels, and over 10 million households currently own at least one RV. With trends towards more upscale RVing, using an RV as a permanent home, and traveling with young children and pets, security becomes a very important issue. All RV owners, whether temporary tourists or permanent nomads, want to know that their home is protected. Just as you take steps to make sure your rig is safe to drive, some simple security measures such as always locking up, avoiding high crime areas, and using surveillance equipment, will give you peace of mind that your home is safe. Deterring Intruders If, like 1 million other people, you have made your RV your permanent residence, the installation of surveillance equipment will ensure your home and all your worldly possessions are secure at all times, wherever you are. A security camera is an effective deterrent for intruders, and, in the unlikely event of a break in, will also provide essential evidence for a prosecution. Adequate insurance for your RV is essential in order to minimize your losses should the worst happen, and a good security system can reduce your premiums. A Safe Location Before you set off on your travels, take some time to do a little research on the areas you are planning to visit so that you can avoid potentially dangerous locations. A shared camp site is usually a safe place to park your RV. RVers tend to be neighborly, and by making friends with other owners, you can ask them to keep an eye on your rig if you have to leave it. It’s still important to practice basic security measures, and this is especially true if you want to try boondocking or dry camping in a more remote location. Minimizing Risks Wherever you choose to stop, you can reduce the risk of burglary by taking valuables such as cameras and laptops with you when you leave your RV, or, if this is impractical, by investing in a safe that can be bolted to the floor. Other basic security steps include always locking doors, windows and any exterior storage compartments. Leaving a light on if you leave your RV unattended in the evening will give potential intruders the impression that someone is inside. Your RV is a valuable asset and, especially if it becomes your permanent home, needs to be adequately protected. A good surveillance system will deter burglars and intruders. When combined with basic security measures and a sensible choice of location, you can relax and enjoy your life on the road.
