ALERT: This rant is very opinionated.... proceed at you own risk and peril.....
"but you just never know", is my s.o.'s favorite tag line for just about anything.
Me.... I refuse to live in fear of the "but you just never know" threat and prefer to enjoy life with whatever odds might be out there.
I am sure that the number of RV's stolen from campsites is by far eclipsed by break-ins, and I refuse to let that possibility bother my RV enjoyment either.
That said, I'm no fool, and I do put a good lock on my coupler and have installed a well hidden and sturdy safe in all my RV's for valuables.
In as much as those precautions reduce at least a 10,000 to one chance by a factor of another 100 times, I use the "but you just never know" factor only when buying lottery tickets.
Don't give the bad guys free rent space in your mind..... It's really just another form of terrorism.
