There seems to be a sense of security among RVers: A belief that ALL of our fellow RVing neighbors are friendly and pose no threat to our person or property. Yes, in an perfect world that would be so, but in this imperfect world that’s not always the case.
How many times have you read on the RV and Camping forums or on social media pages about something stolen or someone’s rig being vandalized? I’m not saying that all of these cases involved a fellow RVer, but there a some who do.
A term you as an RVer need to be familiar with is GO Bag! What is a GO Bag!? It’s a bag, suitcase, briefcase or container that contains your most important documents and valuables. In case of an emergency such as a FIRE in your RV, or having to evacuate your RV due to dangerous weather, a GO bag is meant to be grabbed easily and quickly as you exit the rig.
As RVers we’re constantly looking for ways to do things easier. I prefer to store bird seed that I keep onboard for our bird feeders in resealable plastic jugs rather than in the original bags. It helps keep the contents from finding its way out of the bag, which makes a mess and attracts unwanted guests (rodents) inside the rig. It also makes filling the bird feeders easier, pouring from a bottle rather than the bag.
