No, but I've pointed out in the past that you can use this Garmin device for about $135 plus $1 a week service fee. It can be wired into the trailer battery. I use this on my dog.

I don't see what good that does, unbolt the wheel, stick another one on, and go. I prefer the chain wrapped through the wheel, and axle, that's just long enough to reach itself, nothing else. They're going to get funny looks dragging a two wheels and tires under a trailer (four on the car trailer).

May have related this story before. If so, forgive me.

Friends of ours in the neighborhood never lock their house. They went away for the weekend and when they returned they found a DVD player on the entertainment centre. They didn't own a DVD player. Somebody had put it there while they were away and nothing was missing.

They used to leave the car unlocked with the keys sitting on the transmission hump. Did that for years. But then somebody took it for a joy ride. Imagine that.

If you can't get the trailer out of sight and don't want a "not for sale" sign, then how about a bumper sticker visible from the street; "I LOVE MY TRAILER".

Or if you are feeling plucky, maybe a sign that says, "You'd have to pry my trailer out of my cold dead fingers"

I like this lock and will probably pick up a pair. Also might as well get a set of the wheel lug locks so they cant remove the tire. I have bookmarked this super page.
Thanks

I've never done anything beyond locking the door.
I got window stickers from FG.com & Casita club in a window of my unit. If someone is that interested they'll look at them & see the classifieds.

So, no trailer locks, all the wheels on, house unlocked, no guns in the house, keys in the vehicles. Life is a lot simpler here.

Sorry to hear that you are in the hospital, but I just thought I'd call to tell you how healthy I am.

I used to keep a sign in the window

NO IT'S NOT

Then a chap asked the meaning of the sign and before I answered he just said "Oh!"
