My hubby has a question!

As we were shopping yesterday for some camping accessories, my hubster wondered about buying a lock for the hitch ball. I thought that would be a great question for the forum: Has anyone heard of a trailer being stolen from a CG? Even with a coupler lock, bolt cutters would take care of that. What are your thoughts?

I always lock our 5th wheel pin whenever and wherever I unhook from my TV.

I have a Reese hitch coupler lock on our new TT. It's a little added protection

There's certainly no harm in having a lock but if someone wants it, they'll find a way to get it, lock or not. Of course, I am a believer in "make it difficult for them to steal"... so I lock my propane tanks, bikes, batteries, doors, etc.

In the past 30 years we have owned RV's we have never put a hitch lock on them. And we never had one stolen but I guess there is always the first time.

We don't lock ours up, nor have we ever. I figure that if they want it, they will take it. Heck, maybe they'll do me a favor

I have a coupler lock on mine. I use it when hitched or unhitched.
