x96mnn, you might want to explain in a different manner. Most of us are so busy being retired and watching reruns of Gunsmoke that we don't have time to track down the nonsense that popped up.
It continues to say “protected.”

As we full time, I have considered a security system. The only one I would think of using would be this one: https://simplisafe.com/

I like what they have but I sent them a question as to what would happen if power was disconnected from the RV or even if power was off at a house, if the system had a battery backup or even a 12v backup for power. Would hate to think that disconnecting the power would disable the system. Waiting to hear back from them.

Any alarm system that is worth anything, will have a battery backup for continued protection when/if the power goes out. Depending on the system, some will provide backup for a few hours on up to maybe 12 hours.

I did some looking in our new unit and found quite a few areas that could be utilized for semi-secure storage areas. Look in your own unit for panels that cover access points for the heater, water heater or pump and tank access hand or man holes. The big question is this hide going to be a periodic or long term hide? Periodic hides are generally easier to access and have less interference to access while a long term hide may require some dismantling for access. In our unit, where the washer/dryer hookup is, there is a cabinet with three drawers and I'll be looking at that spot as a possible long term hide. A 1/4 inch thick false wall hide in a book case is a good point for hiding papers in a book shelf. An access in the mattress works pretty good too. Think of where you wouldn't look for something and then ask someone else where they'd think of looking for the same thing. If they guess any of your hiding spots, time to think of a different hiding spot.

I have been thinking of one of these for the truck.

You put it together inside the console and it uses the same bolts through the floor as the console to hold it in.

We have a friend that is retired and loves staying at our house when we go out of town... win - win.

bobbecky; ... We/I installed a SimpliSafe system in our S & B. Have used it for 2 years now and really like it. Have gotten a couple alerts that the power went off and the battery backup kicked in. Was also alerted when the power came back on. Also we/I added Ring stickup cameras to the outside. Hopefully our S&B is a little more secure when we are out and about.

We have Simplisafe for our home. If we lose power then there is a battery backup. I can say that we have had near-instantaneous notification from the monitoring service any time the alarm is on and we accidentally set it off. They also test periodically. We have been more than pleased with Simplisafe.
