I am more worried about theft when I am at home. The HTT sits on the street all week. In the summer my TV sits in front of it, except when I take it to work. So anyone who pays any attention can tell when I am gone. The only thing is I do not normally drive the TV to work. My tanks are chained, but the cheap battery that came with it is not.

At the CG, we lock the door, but rarely the hatches. We actually have a spot in one of the hatches where we stash a door key. Our dog, the best protection ever, super friendly but looks extremely aggressive, ears like radars. Things that we do not want to grew legs and wonder off are always put away after being used.

As for keeping valuable safe inside the TT, I have made two spots in the TT that can store valuables, one is a large spot for things like purses, and computers, and other is for small items like my wallet or extra cash, totally out of sight and most likely no one would even guess that there is a spot to put those items. An ounce of preventions is worth avoiding months of headaches.

I had a relative who stoped at a show in Branson.
The guy showing people where to park told them he had a special place out back to park motor homes.
You guessed it,when they came out all their valuables were gone.
To this day they blame the guy that parked them out back, where he couldnt be seen breaking in.

I agree with tinlizzie... have been camping on way or another for 50+ years, never had anything stolen. I leave all my doors storage doors unlocked at the campgrounds, but I will lock those if for some reason I need to park in a Walmart parking lot and go into the store.

I changed all the compartment locks. A large screwdriver will still let someone who wants in, in, but not going to let everyone who has a 751 key just open up my basement, power room or propane closets.

Beyond that I'm not worried about it. If someone has to steal like that, then they need it more than I do. Leave me a note and I will send you a check too.......
