Power Tongue Jack Question

We currently park our TT on the driveway. We have noticed that someone has been playing with the Power Tongue Jack. We believe it is the neighborhood kids. We are planning on moving the trailer to the backyard once the RV is installed and we are also planning on installing a battery disconnect switch. Until either one of those happen does any one have any suggestions to keep someone from playing with it?

Pull the fuse, it should an inline fuse right at the battery.

All you can do in the mean time is disconnect the battery. It takes no time to open battery box and remove the nuts and pull the cables.

After a few batteries went on a walk-about at the storage lot I started removing mine. Wing nuts make the removal and install a snap.

+1, wing nuts on the battery posts were one of my first "upgrades". I've always been in the habit of removing my battery and keeping it in the garage on a float charger. Formed the habit when we had a boat in storage, has worked well for me since then!

Except for the one time I forgot to bring it with me when I went to pick up the TT. I figured out that the truck could run the jack, but I forgot to isolate the wires and popped the fuse right away. That's when I discovered how nice it is to carry an assortment of extra fuses... lessons learned...

Pull the battery out completely, as others have suggested.
