I'm New and my Jayco was already stolen!

Glad to have found the forum. I am a first time Jayco owner. I just purchased a 2018 Jay Flight 24rbs. I have owned other RVís (Holiday Rambler 5th Wheel, Winnebago Class A). Iíve been away from the RV lifestyle for about 10 years. Glad to be back. Did lots of research and settled on what I believe is a great unit. I havenít even transferred the registration yet and my camper has already been stolen! Some Jack Hat busted open about 5 storage units and tossed everything into my camper. Then he/she hooked up the camper and drove up the road about 5 miles to a grocery parking lot. I guess they picked what they wanted from the stuff and abandoned the rest/my camper. Got some issues to talk to insurance about Ė entry door all pried open etcÖ Probably $2k or more in damages. Unfortunately, my camper was not behind the secure gated area (no more space). I was in the process of getting a boot and/or hitch lock but the thief beat me with the theft! Ugh. Secured area parking now! Thanks for the welcome. Look forward to learning from you all. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Welcome aboard!

I hate thieves. They do a lot of damage and cause a lot of headaches for everyone.

FYI, secured lots don't stop thrives either. Make sure to have few layers of protection. This makes you look less desirable, so they want to move onto the next guy.

I've had both, doesn't matter, although mine weren't stolen, just broken in to.
Good luck....

This suuuuuucks! What kind of lock are you looking at? I got this for mine and it’s a tank

AMPLOCK U-TLS2516I RV Trailer...

Make sure you look at your coupler type. I bought the wrong one first, then realized Jayco used an inverted set up, not sure if I am saying that right.

Welcome to the Forum from Western New York State! Sorry you had to go through that right out of the chute! I do hope your insurance covers everything.
Every day's a learning experience, though sometimes not what we expected.
