High gas prices invoke heightened theft deterrent tactics

As fuel prices continue to escalate, thieves are taking advantage of traveling inventory- Recreational Vehicles. Since many RV’s carry up to 100 gallons of regular or diesel fuel, gas crooks have found them to be extremely profitable targets. Over the past year, gas siphoning crimes have gone through the roof, causing many recreational enthusiasts to buy locking gas caps, park exclusively in well-lit areas, or simply forgo family RV vacations.

Locking gas caps are a good idea, and lighted camp grounds are typically safer than dark sites. That said, RVers now have a more effective option. It’s called the Smart Light 1000, and it’s the only 12 volt motion light in the world. In an effort to combat gas piracy, many RVers are installing this motion light above their gas tanks. When a person is detected within a 20 foot field of view, the light illuminates, and the would-be intruder is scared off. “We initially developed this light to be mounted where standard porch lights are placed” explains Jason Weaver, President and CEO of Starlights, Inc. “We wanted to increase the safety and convenience of fellow RVers. Recently, however, more of our customers are buying the lights to mount over their gas tanks. It makes perfect sense, just not something we thought about originally”.

The Smart Light 1000 is motion activated, works off of the coaches’ 12 volt source, has a battery monitoring system, and it even filters out humans from other objects in order to reduce false triggering throughout the night. The SL 1000 also has a 14 day money back guarantee. “If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, simply return it within 14 days for a full refund”, states Mr. Weaver. The Smart Light 1000 also comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. Click here to learn more information about the Smart Light 1000.
