If you make it too tough to break-in they will just steal the whole trailer...

I am lucky here that the county allows us to park our units here at home.

When someone walks up to my trailer the back yard big light comes on and the dog barks...

I don't leave things like the batteries in plain view. My propane tanks on my off-road popup has a long shank lock on the twist handle...

Most things stolen around here are Batteries and Propane tanks - Both has something to with meth labs I guess...

If that's not good enough, maybe some landmines leading to and from the moat (just make sure you remember where they are for your own safety).

By the time you get through all your security, I hope you'll have time to go camping and get some much needed relaxation done!
Don't be silly Swardy, everyone knows a shark would eat an alligator.

Unfortunately no. Still waiting on our TT to be delivered. Hopefully THIS coming week now. Our Trailer Valet XL is still in its package unopened.

Let me know how yours works out.

They certainly will if you don't invest the time to train them properly. I suggest McFlurry milkshakes from Mcdonalds - sharks will do anything for those things!

Marshmallows are great for training 'gators too. They love those things!

Get the thing out of the Bay area. Find a seasonal site or off site storage in a community close to where you think you would be using the TT. Getting out of the high $$ Bay area would make it all more affordable and at the same time maybe get you to a safer location.

If you are parked with many other RV's you unit [you said $12k I think] isn't going to stand out as a target with most of the other campers in the $30 - $100k area. Better not to be the fanciest Rv on the lot.

The alarm was an excaliber but the tracking part which connected to it was separate and that company supplies the service
