We just use a Master Lock on the coupler. It doubbles as a safety pin and is easy to store. In addition it makes it nearly impossible for someone to walk by when we are hooked to the truck and lift the coupler up. 5th wheels can also be released in a second just by pulling the lever so a lock on them is a good thing to have also.

I use a lock on the coupler so that someone can't just release it when I am parked in route to the campground. The only thing I lock when camping is my honda generator and the door to the camper (if I am leaving the campsite for an extended period). Like others have said, locks keep honest people honest.

Right now my trailer is sitting on a private lot. Not in a campground or at home. I do have a coupler lock on the tongue of the trailer. It will not stop someone from stealing my camper, but it may cause them to go for an easier steal.

It is my understanding that stolen articles are NOT covered by insurance- The insurance company stated that all valuables must be under lock and key to be considered for reimursement- Please don't ask me how I know! DD

I bought a " Reese "coupler lock and the " Club " wheel lock. If they want to steal it , might as well make them work for it .

my dealer mentioned to us that several people had their hitches stolen from campsites last season. What's the world coming to ?
