Default Alternative weapons suggestions

What other weaponswould you all suggest for home defense when a firearm is not a workable solution due to safety( I live in a mobile home/RV park) because of the nature of thin walls and close proximity of neighbors?

A reputation as a nut goes a long way in a small community.

Shotgun shells with rubber shot. I tried them at the range. They seem to do the trick up close. Rubber bullets. Pepper spray. An alarm on windows and doors. Thin board with nails or a bag with broken glass placed at windows. Door jams. A real sword or machete. A bat or mace. A knife or dagger. An evil demon dog. Learn martial arts.

a large sign saying you have a Rottwieler with Rabies might deter some.

For sure a good home security system.A couple of dogs patrolling the yard.Bright Motion sensing lights,pepper spray,taser.A bat or a baton(if legal in your area)Hell,even a CO2 gun will hurt.I make sure to have the sheriff's office and local P.D.'s number on speed dial should I ever need it for non-9-11 situations.
Maybe asking the police,Sheriff's Dept. for more patrols.Or ,you can set up a neighborhood watch with other citizens in your park.
