trailer broken into again

Well it time to move the trailer had it broken into again.
they broke both doors.
going out on Saturday to get measurement for new doors
Anybody out the Mission Chilliwack area know of a good storage area.
Looking at the one in Mission down by the river.
It is closer to home, but I am not liking the idea of hauling threw town

Ouch!


How bad? Anything serious stolen/broken (other than the doors)?


I don't get it. What could anyone want in a parked-for-storage trailer?

Why would someone be so dumb as to break into both doors? Did they think it was a duplex?

Really sorry to hear of your experience. It does make you feel violated. Had our MH broken into years ago. I can relate.

Very sorry to hear that happened to you. Ten years ago we owned a Casita. We kept it at a storage area near us with lots of other rvs. A homeless person broke into it and it looked as though he was living in it for a while. The office at the storage called us and told us to check our unit. Found a gun behind the microwave and an ax in the sink! Pretty scary!! Sold the unit not long afterwards. In our case there was no dead bolt...so he just had to pop the lock.

Wow, the again part really stinks! Killing some notions I had about Canada being so crime free compared to the States. Sorry and good luck.

Sounds like, you need to leave it unlocked.

How about a battery in the cargo with an on/off switch. Run a few wires to the doors, connected to a couple micro switches (normally open). Then connect it to a loud horn under the unit. When the door is opened, the circuit is complete and the horns goes off. This method would use no power just sitting there. Maybe add a timer so that you can determine what time the alarm went off at.

Hello
The ( B) did not take anything looking for money, will need to replace both doors on the trailer, I would love to hook up a hot wire to the batteries to the doors.
7 trailer were broken into this time all the same nothing stolen.
I do not have a back yard to park the trailer in or else it would be there.
I have been at this yard, for 18 yrs. no problem except now.
Time to move it. will have it moved by Nov 1 or sooner
I will be going out on Saturday and meeting up with the RV repair guy, he is going to measure the doors. and look for any other damage.
I guess I will not need to wait for the replacement locks,(Recall) both will be replace at once.
They have beef up the security but not enough (time to let a couple of dogs run around the yard at night.

Having a break-in changes your perspective.

Not that you asked...

One incident in 18 years sounds like it's been generally safe to me.

Has the neighborhood gone downhill recently? If no, maybe it was one guy passing through.

Is the area well lit at night? If no and they add lighting that alone will help to deter future problems. In my experience with managing commercial building security, lighting improvements give the best bang for your buck when it comes to improving security.

"The devil you know is better than the devil you don't know" comes to mind as to moving to another storage lot. That is unless the new place has heads up better reputation and security.

Good luck. vic
