It's a Bull Dog 12volt automobile alarm and it's loud. I mounted the small box and siren in the back, behind where the steps fold back and two wires to the battery. Think about touching the steps (or anything else), it goes off. It's not useful when your in the trailer but, if you leave it for a few hours it does come in handy.

How long does it scream before it shuts down?
If you leave for a few hours, how are you going to hear it?

It calls your cell phone. Lasts a couple minutes.

What sort of camp grounds do you go to. We have never had a need for a screeching alarm.

If you camp in the winter the campers are pretty spread out if it's 20. Mine has been played with overnight, but they never got in.

That's better than my neighbor's car. It'll scream a good 20 minutes before he finally wakes up to shut it off. Not sure how long it would go if he didn't. And no, his car has never been broken into - some times the wind blows...

this is my alarm system. It is motion sensored and will bark when a person approaches the rig. Cheap and very effective, as it only annoys the bandito not the neighbours.

I sincerely hope you are not going to turn this on at a campground. That would really set me off. Please do not bring the city with you! I, for one, go camping to get away from that kind of aggravation. If you are that paranoid about someone breaking into your wagon, maybe camping isn't for you.

The only alarms I have in place is motion detectors. Turns on my outside porch lights and goes CLICK on the inside when somethings moves in the front or back of my trailer....

If I did that I would probably find the "ALARM MODULE" hanging from a noose when we got back from being away... Maybe some flowers on the ground under the noose.

I like the inside dawg barking idea posted here.
