Oh the panic button is a great invention . All I have to do is press the button and follow the noise in the sea of white pickup trucks behind the shop

A 12-volt motion sensor light would be a handy replacement for the light outside the door. Anyone have a reference for one?

See this thread starting with Post #71 for a discussion of motion sensors:

Options that are not on the list

I agree that motion sending lights can be obnoxious in a camping situation as stated in the thread Karen refers to, but if it could be switched off in a campground, it might be beneficial in the situation described by the OP. Real problem is that scum bags are everywhere. One could be encountered in a Walmart in an upscale area or even in a public or private campground. Warm winter weather attracts all sorts of people. I have seen some "questionably appearing" individuals in Florida's State Parks not really camping, more like living out of their run down vehicles during the winter months. Doesn't mean they have bad intentions but obviously not there for the love of camping.

Suggest only stay at the open all-night ones and under the brightest lighting. Done a lot of overnighting at WalMart, never had issues but now I will get an air horn.

Hi Sharomm,
Would you mind posting the location? It is certainly someplace I would avoid.
Thanks,
Maureen

Something else needs to be mentioned, never sleep at a rest stop or parking lot or any strange area with one of your windows open. You would not do that in your car so the same applies to your trailer. Your MaxxFan can cool you down. Besides that, the noise is less with your windows shut.

True.

Also, to the original poster: did you report this to the local police? That's VERY important.
