    For those of us with alarm systems I was wondering where the "alarm on" flasher was. Mine has been placed at the bottom of the windscreen pillar and can only be seen from the nearside. Very bright and I can see it shining on the bedroom ceiling in the house when it flashes. Goodness knows what it will be like on a campsite. Currently planning on putting some better sited LEDs in that can be automatically dimmed depending on the light level. Mine is an Autowatch system installed by the dealer (or rather his elected installation company).

    Ours is on the dash just to the right between the binacle and the adjustable air vent ... it is RUDDY BRIGHT!!!!! On a night time we have to put a partial cover on the flaming thing otherwise we can see it 'reflecting' all over the van!

    As we wild camp a lot we don't really want it showing outside the van anyway as it gives away our location, but if we're on an aire, or somewhere more 'populated' then we like it to be visible from outside.
