I do the same, Corben. Since I use a small coupler lock, I just put it on whether towing or disconnected.

Funny timing, but I just took my TT to the Jayco dealer to have a recall done, and after unhooking I installed the ball lock that came with the trailer. So not having a place to leave the key as it was closed, I decided that I would actually take it off and leave it off for them, since all of the the other trailers didn't have them, and some were worth way more than mine. BUT the lock was old, and now seized. I tried prying it off over and over, with no luck...so I got out a hammer. Two strikes is all it took to break the whole casting in two, and for it to fall off, without even needing the keys in it !!! I never realized that they were so flimsy!!! And no one noticed, so I have to now agree now more than ever... "locks keep the honest honest!"
