I've been interested in this as well.. but like others have stated if someone really wants in they can just break a window and climb in.

Thanks for this. It will be my next upgrade. For some reason I have three different keys for one trailer...

Nice thread.
We typically don't leave anything of significance in the rv when we're away from it. If we do it goes into the small safe that's hidden and secured. Hand gun always goes where I do. Tablets and laptop go in the safe.
Changing the locks is a good idea though. I'll check into the sites referenced here though.

While this is true, there is still something to be said for changing the locks. If someone comes along and wants to get in an RV, but they don't have the key to yours, they will move on to an easier target. It won't stop someone determined to get into your RV, but it makes it less likely for your rig to become a random target.

Same thinking applies to home alarm systems. Really, you don't even need the alarm system. Just the sticker in the window or sign out front. It's easier to walk to the next house down the street without an alarm than to deal with the alarm in yours.

Anyone with a screwdriver can get in your camper faster than you can pull the key out of your pocket.
