I just put a master lock on the coupler to make it harder. Same thing I do when I am at home and the TT is on it's pad next to the house. Like others have said, if somebody wanted it, they could still get it but at least i'm not just giving it to them.

Can't even find the key to the door, thieves can get in without any damage to the tt.

I throw one of those yellow Reese coupler locks on there while at camp or parked in front of the house. I've heard of TT's getting liberated from seasonal storage yards but none to my knowledge from a campground or someones front yard.

We use one. Figure if they want it that bad they're going to make a little noise getting it.

We have a coupler lock on ours for two reasons. First, when I hook up it gives me peace of mind that I have properly connected everything before heading out, its part of my walk around. Second, I don't want to take any chances of our trailer walking away at the camp ground, not that it will

I guess it would depend on the fine print.

We have a reese yellow coupler lock because our trailer when it is in storage. Really, I think it is only for my peace of mind. Not sure what it really does. I think this was a discussion last year and someone had a youtube clip where the lock was picked in 30 seconds.

While camping we don't lock it. We have a hybrid and it takes me an hour to pack it up. If someone wants to pack it up and steal it all the power to them. I bet my golden would help them.

Cheers

I use a pin lock on our 5th wheel both at the storage yard and at the CG.

Yes, we do! I insisted even though we own outright. More so to protect ourselves from liabilities with others.
