Good advice but in MANY parts of the country it's a little more important to not LEAVE coolers out due to wildlife issues. In addition to loosing the cooler or contents, it can get you a hefty fine in many parts of the west. Might also get you a visit from local bears

This is camping? Sounds exactly like what I want to leave behind, when pulling out the trailer.

Wasn't OL in the paper recently for a teen murder?


A year ago...were you the one pressing the incident so much last year here on the forum? And I doubt it was in the local Dearborn paper to you.

I wired up an old motion activated light fixture I had at home and made it portable. I keep it set to stay on the max time when activated. Haven't had any problems since, lights usually send the cockroaches scurrying away.


LOL...I thought about that too. My original thought was to pee in one of the bottles and put the top back on it it and put it in there at night. But my wife said they would get mad and do something to our trailer. So then I thought about leaving a sign that says one bottle has pee in it, take your chance. lol

LOL I was thinking the same thing. Or, load up the cooler with ice and dog poop. It would be funny to keep watch and follow them with video camera in hand. When they find the surprise, you announce they will be the next hit on U tube


Full timing it since July 2012 My pics

Since my refrigerator is only accessible from inside the RV, I have never had any cold drinks stolen. I don't drag coolers around and clutter my campsite with them. Most places I camp it would be bears or racoons stealing a cooler.

Good point, didn't even think about that. Where I'm usually camping all I have to worry about is raccoons and squirrels....and thirsty teenagers...

Get one of the IR deer cams and photo them red handed.
Turn them into the park authorities and get them kicked out of the park. They are thieves and need to be taught a lesson.

I wondered what a high-income, high-intensity RV park looked like
Thanks for the pic.
