Locks and more locks....

Reading on these forums experiences others have had.....decided it might be wise to lock down some things before hitting the road....completed today a few add-ons....locked the propane tanks on....formed locking straps for the batteries and locked them on....also, added a battery disconnect switch while into the batteries....changed out storage compartments locks to get away from the universal 751 that everyone seems to have.....getting close to pulling off the driveway.

We felt the same.....mission accomplished last season.

I'm down to three keys....one that locks all my TT doors and storage....one that unlocks the battery and propane tank padlocks....and one that unlocks all the hitch gear

At least the thief will have to work a little harder now.

Thanks for posting a link to your thread. I plan to change the locks on our new trailer but hadn't found a place to buy from yet.

This is the same website I used and was very satisfied...even had to return one that I got wrong on original order and had no problems.

I hope you are all as pleased as I am.

After 2 years - my original 751 cargo lock with pot metal cylinder body had already corroded to the locking nut. The RVLocks cylinders and hardware are all plated with stainless nose hardware....a quality difference you will notice.

Thanks to all the locks posts, I ordered my new compartment locks and door lock last week from RVlocks also, all keyed alike. Per you guys and what I have read, they look like a quality product. Hope to get them in a few days and installed. Also drilling a hole or two this weekend to lock the 2-30lb. propane tanks in place. What's the best way to lock in the two batteries? And having zero electrical skills, so how do I hook up a battery disconnect and what's the best one to use? Right now the rig has two battery boxes installed by CW.
