I would think most thieves are going to go for quick targets of opportunity. First and foremost I agree with the "out of sight out of mind" theory
. I also would think that if a thief found your safe they are going to assume that you have something valuable to hide.
Now granted I didn't make thievery my career choice but I would think that if someone were to open the door to your TT and had a very loud alarm go off would run off into the woods to get away. The idea here is to NOT give them the time to root around in your TT.
Something that can also help is a alarm sticker on your door. While it may not deter all the low life's, it may give some pause as to weather or not to try.
Also I did spend a couple of my early years as a full time alarm installer so I am somewhat versed in their operation..
Anywho. . . Just throwing my .2c worth in.
