I've read several stories of that happening at dealerships, where the thieves would get the power cords from the storage compartments, and cut the ones that were attached to the RV's.

Replacing a 50 amp cord can be a chunk of change.

I used to be addicted to time travel, but that's all in the past now.

Amen, brother...... We're full time and pack plenty of heat.

I wrote a limerick and posted it in the window of the entry door:

Inside is a coach of great charm
And also a burglar alarm
So, if your intentions aren't nice
You better think twice
'cause the owners are heavily armed!

This happened In my do-called secure fenced and video monitored storage facility. I am waiting for the monetary values to finish the appraisal. Check your units Dailey if they are stored. Thanks for all the kind words.

When bad things happen to me I try to be thankful that it wasn't worse. A broken finger, it could have been a broken hip. A scratch in the fender, it could have been a dent.
Be thankful that your wife wasn't there alone when a couple of crackheads broke in.

This happened to us over Thanksgiving weekend while our camper was at the dealer for warranty work. They broke into about a dozen units mostly just vandalizing doing damage and taking a view small TV's. (Apparently, the larger TV's were to hard to get out.)

Thankfully, in our case, all they took was a very old a 400 watt inverter from under the TV storage. They also broke the lock getting in. Maybe I should feel insulted that they did not consider more of our stuff "theft Worthy"

Even so, we still felt violated and when we got it back we did a thorough cleaning...even the bathroom.
