The rope is cheap , easy to operate , works in all weather conditions and I have never lost signal .
I use the same method with my pontoon boat . It too is securely and safely fastened to my dock with 1/2 “ rope sans the hatchet knot .
I once knew a farmer who returned home from vacation to find someone had stolen about a dozen mature walnut trees which lined his driveway.

Casita 17’. We use one of those locks wh fit up into the tongue socket plus a lever lock and I wrap the chains around all that and lock them in place tight with 2big ole heavy duty Master padlocks, wh are easy to see. The casual thief will not fool with 4 separate lock systems IMHO. If we are in a remote area I Put a lock on both tires so that one spare us not enuf
