See? Even that raccoon knows what REAL beer is! If it had been Fat Tire or Shiner, it would have disappeared!

We sat their just stunned, not knowing what to say. Then the child's father came around the bend and saw what his son was doing he was so apologetic and embarrassed. We were just like hey he couldn't carry more than 1 or two pieces anyway, no problem. One thing I have noticed more of though is lack of respect for other people's sites. What I mean is I would never take a short cut and walk through someone's site, whether they are there or not. It seems lately that some people, mainly young adults think it is perfectly OK to just cut through your site .
Yes, that is really bad manners. I figure everyone's site is their private property during the time they are renting it. I guess others don't see it that way. I think most of us welcome people who walk by on the road and stop at our sites to be friendly, and most folks tend to speak to you first before walking onto your site, in my experience. I usually invite them to come on over and sit down. But folks who just want to take a shortcut.....that's a product of poor upbringing and laziness.

They are gun locks. Thousands were given away by police departments all over the country a few years ago for families to secure their guns against unauthorized use. Can't say I have ever seen one on a gun though...

I have now changed out my lights on both sides of my RV to motion senors activated. If someone come's into my CG at night it comes on automatically by heat sensors, but will not pick up cats and raccoon's and dogs. I found this Company that I recommend highly they are called starlightsinc.com. There products hook up and replace the lights that come with your unit. They are are great company. After 2 years I had a sensor lens crack, they sent me free replacements. You can set the sensitivity your self and they are also great lights when you come home, mine will pick a person up 30' away and stay on for 5 mins. All you do is replace the fixture and use the original switch to either keep it on like a regular light or turn your switch on then off and back on again to make it into a sensor light. I wouldn't be without one. It will diff. keep a person out of your CG and protect your stuff. I have one now at my door and on the other side where my electrical plugs in. I'm tiring to have FR put these on all the units, not much more $$ then a regular light fixture. Check out their web site, they also sell any kinda of LED's that you could ever need.

I use something similar with great results. Here it is on amazon and has good reviews. I like that they are battery operated.

Well my problem with theft always seems to be in the cooler area. As mentioned before, I have had a cooler full of beer stolen over a memorial day weekend, and this past week, while in FL, at a state park, someone went into our cooler and removed 2 "T" bone steaks. It is really kind of weird because the were 4 more steaks in the cooler, along with some ground beef, and several different drinks, and a cooler full of beer right beside it. At first I thought it might have been rodents, but I don't think they would have got the cooler open, and if they had, I believe they would have taken more than a package containing two steaks.

Someone took my sewer hose and folding plastic sewer hose holder from my 38 foot class A motor home when we were staying at Kelly's RV park west of Callahan Florida on US 1 / 301 about 3 years ago. When I told the owner of the RV park, she reimbursed me $20.

Not to be flippant, but leaving a cooler out is kinda inviting theft. Learned that many yrs ago when 2 young boys (6 or 7) helped themselves to our cooler of Pepsi, but later that day, here came the boys with their father and apologized profusely. We accepted part of the blame for leaving the cooler out, but I think the boys learned a good lesson. We don't leave coolers out anymore.
BTW, the boys became good friends to our 2 boys over the summer and are still friends and laugh about the incident.
