I guess this question is mainly for the full timers among us... though I guess it could apply to those who take longer trips but still maintain a home somewhere.
How do you store/protect your files & important documents in the RV?
The reason I bring this up is... recently, an nearby RV owner out here in AZ had to stand around & watch as his RV went up in flames last week. I saw the news reports when it happened, but I heard more of the story yesterday from a neighbor here in the park who knew the guy.
As it so often does, the fire began because the guy was using a kerosene heater one night when something obviously went wrong. I didn't get into the specifics of that... but the neighbor was mentioning how the guy had lost all of his important paperwork in the fire. The title to his truck, his military discharge, all his financial paperwork, etc, etc.
I seem to recall reading that some of the newer models are coming equipped with a hotel-type safe located somewhere in the rig... but that was an option I didn't notice in 2013, so needless to say, I don't have it.
But I've always had one of those fireproof file boxes in my house... and when I began full timing last year, I brought it with me. I still haven't found a good place to keep it that's both, convenient to get to when needed, and out of the way when not... but at least I have it.
Of course, it's no where near large enough to hold all of my files (I've got most of the ordinary stuff in a rolling 2-drawer file that I also brought from the house) but it is large enough to hold my old tax files, titles, birth certificate, DD-214, etc... plus a few other things one wouldn't want to lose via theft or fire.
Anyway, I just thought I'd throw this out there, as it might be something worth considering.
