Bob - I see those lids slide off to the left or to the right. How do they get locked. I do see a small hole maybe for a master type lock to slip thru. The slide off lids looks like a neat way to solve the problem of having clearance above the battery box to remove the batteries when mounted up next to the front of the trailer.. Seems like all of the trailer fronts are at an angle.
Those type of locks to me probably would not be as safe as built-in key latch lock like the tool boxes have... I was just commenting up the page for another post where I used a dremal tool here at the house to cut open a old master lock that I didnt have a key for anymore. It cuts open amazingly fast using a dremal tool. I suppose the thiefs would have an battery operated dremal tool but if they didnt then they would use your own 120VAC power to cut off your lock haha... geeesch...
My tongue mounted batteries are wide open for thief sitting in their plastic cases. I have helped a few other rv'ers install the diamond plate tool boxes but have never done it for my self yet... Anything you can get to slow them down is the key. If we were sitting side by side at a camp site guess which one they would get...
My goal this season is to hopefully upgrade my five year old batteries ($$$) so you can bet i will be installing a metal lock box of some sort for sure.
