I have never had an issue. Then again, I do not have a brief case style. When I put my panel out, I put it on the roof of my TT (my cord is long enough to lay down the front and plug into the controller. I have left my campsite and been gone all day many times.
I may be playing stupid odds but generally speaking, a person bold enough to climb up on top of a TT at a camp site to steal a solar panel would probably be bold enough to open the storage panels (since they all have the same key) and/or just break into the TT.
