Whether you live in an RV full time or take it out for the occasional summer road trip, you likely have a lot of expensive equipment, appliances and other valuables you want to keep protected. Many RV owners assume that other’s living their freewheeling lifestyle will be honorable and avoid stealing one another’s belongings. However, even the most friendly RVing communities may have a dishonest individual in their midst. There’s also a trend of thieves who target RV parks in tourist areas for a fast and easy way to make some cash. Today’s RV’s often have the same level of luxurious appliances and electronic devices as modern homes, and people on vacation often leave their purse, wallet, phones, computers and large amounts of cash inside their fifth wheel while enjoying their next excursion. Keep your RV safe from burglars by enlisting the help from the experts at Top Atlanta Locksmith. Installing high security locks on your RV can help take away the stress and provide an extra layer of protection for your loved ones. Call our office today to find out more information or to schedule an appointment for your next high security lock installation in Atlanta, Georgia or a surrounding metro area community.
Many people are unaware of a dangerous common practice among RV manufacturers. In order to maintain convenience for dealers, they often install the same lock and key on all RV models. That means there’s a good chance that your RV keys could open over half of the RV’s in your neighborhood, regardless of make, model or manufacturing date. A lot of thieves also know this is common, and are happy to take advantage of it. Replacing your existing locks with a high security unit will show local criminals that you take your security seriously, and they’ll likely move on to a less well prepared neighbor. Advancements in technology have provided new and innovative ways to lock your RV’s entry door. One example is the RVLock v.40 Keyless entry lock which provides a keypad and transponder key fob, for a customized and convenient solution. After installation, you’ll be able to take off on your next adventure, and not have to worry about losing your keys. Best of all, you will be sending a strong message to anyone who may be tempted to break into your fifth wheel while you’re away.
Another neglected lock on most RV’s is the storage bay. RV enthusiasts often use this storage space to house outdoor sporting equipment like surf boards, mountain bikes, kayaks and other expensive and highly sought after goods. Most criminals who target RV’s go for this section first because it is easy to break into undetected and they can find items they can sell quickly for a great price. The minimum standard locks in your storage bay are easy to pick with a lock picking tool kit or bump key. Installing a new set of high security locks will significantly decrease the chances of losing your valuables.
