Someone I know had their TT stolen last summer from a private campground, the kind where you leave your RV for the summer and drive back and forth from home. All we can do is make it as inconvenient to steal as possible and maybe the thief will move on to an easier mark. And have insurance.

I had to look up what OCD meant... I was thinking "Over Curious Dude" but GOOGLE says it means Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)... I can't even spell a couple of those words...

Too big of words for this old guy to worry about...

Dale,

I posted the following inexpensive coupler lock over at your other tongue lock thread (https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f7...ock-34255.html) and should meet your needs. Has worked great on my Jayco coupler for over 10 years:

I believe that most thieves want to grab and go easily, so any deterrent works, cheap or expensive. I've found one of the most useful locks is a small cable lock which goes through the safety hole in the coupler. The same cable lock can be used on the king pin ring for the fifth wheel.

If you have purchased a firearm recently, it comes with a cable lock. They work great as a trailer lock. And yes, my firearms are also very secure.
