Dream Chasers, I read your post wrong. I thought you said you had a can of BEER spray. I was thinking "Where the hell you get a can of beer spray?"

Oldgator 73, reminds me of the time my neighbor was telling me about driving home his brand new truck and a 12 point beer jumped out right in front of him.  I was laughing soooo hard...he asked me "what's so damn funny about that, it could have wrecked my new truck!"  I told him I'd never seen a 12 point beer before...or at least one that jumped out of a ditch!  I think they call that Malt Liquor in some states  8)

I think he may have had at least a few 12 pointers before he told me the story  :P  Slurring words and all.

We have dachshunds.

When they hear something they can raise enough cain that the burglar would BEG to be allowed to exit if he was brave enough to enter in the first place.

If he gets past the dogs, I have something for him.  ;)

    Here is a list of security systems from PC Magazine, ....

So I am new to the RV world and haven't even purchased a unit (yet).  But I have been studying all the library and forums for good ideas and what to look (out) for.  One of the items is battery life and maintenance.  It would seem to me if you connect such security devices to your house and are not on shore power, your batteries would soon be for not.

The camera's I install and maintain at work use a 500 mA power supply @ 12 vDC. I can run two cameras on one power supply as the camera draws 185 mA.  I have found that if I remove the infra red source they drop to 30~50 mills which isn't a bad load but still might knock a battery system down.

I am actually considering placing (4) cams on the RV and recording as I drive, kinda like a dash-cam setup except all angles.  I could do this for under $200 + time to install. Never know when a recording of an incident might come in handy.

I found a link to that Owl Eye security system. It's a drive assist system. The 360 degree live stitching allows you to see all around the rv while driving. Pretty cool for blind spot detection.



What do y'all think of this?
