WDH spring bar storage

Did a search...

I've got some ideas for storing my spring bars, but would like to see what others have done.

I've been leaving the rest of the WDH on the truck, but maybe I should pull it and lock it to the trailer.

What do you do?

Anyone? Anyone, Bueller?

I usually just put it all in my front storage of the TT when parked.

I have two battery boxes and just put them across the top when parked at a site. In storage, I put them in my outside storage area in the trailer.

When we had a tt, I made brackets for the V tongue and locked them to the tongue

I should have mentioned that the trunnion (vertical) end of mine are greasy.

When at the campground or in the storage lot, I'm looking to minimize mess as well as deter theft.

Maybe I just need to be carefull I don't rub 'em on something...

I'm considering something much like that, except I would need tubes to slide the trunnion into.

And I was thinking with a long-shanked padlock I could lock the wdh chains to the breakaway chains.

The trunnions were greasy on mine also.

Thanks, I like what you did.

Mine are 'L' shaped, with the trunnion about 8" long. That's why I'm thinking about dropping it in a tube.

Either that, or fabricating a cover. like a 10" piece of PVC that would slide over and clip in place.

Your "L" shaped bars would fit in the brackets I made.
