Never anything touched in 4 years of almost full time. But we had our truck broken into in Houston while moving from one CG to another :-(

I only worry about the generator. We keep a chain on it when we leave the CG.

I have never personally had anything stolen but have heard of others. Most of the time it's petty stuff like alcohol, coolers,and bikes. The one season we were at a state park and a bunch of folks had their hitches stolen out of their receivers. I have always locked mine. The did catch the culprits they were local kids sneaking in through a hole in the fence and scrapping them out for cash. We always locked our bikes at the state campground when we left our site. I also have an autistic son and locked them so he wouldn't take off when I wasn't looking. I would have to say that most of the stuff that comes up missing is by kids looking for excitement or a buzz.

Oh yeah there was one time our screen house was raided and someone stole our foam plates and my dogs giant 2' long bone. I found the plates and bone under a tree with tooth marks in the plates from the hooded bandit lol. Them darn coons tried to steal that darn dog bone every evening we camped at that cg. Every morning i found it under the same tree. must have been too heavy for that stinker to haul up the tree.

We were loosing small things this summer. Same thing - the bandits were 4 legged mask wearing pests.
I live trapped 5 of them (individually of course) and thought I had a 6th one last weekend. I was mistaken
When I got closer it was proven to be a skunk. So I went to the garage and got a tarp, advanced my position quietly while shining a light in its general direction and jsut as I was getting ready to cover it my wife behind me said in a loud voice "WHATS IN THE TRAP THAT YOU NEED TO COVER IT?" Holy crap as if I wasn't freaked out withthe thought of being sprayed before....

Driving 12 miles to the woodlot in the industrial park I deposited it behind the Home Depot.
Figured with their slogan of "You can do it - We can help" it was a perfect fit.
Kids looking for a bit of excitement I can deal with. Critters not so much.

Just Monday I went to pick up my 5er from the service center to get some post sale items fixed and I get home and low and behold I open the front hatch (it was unlocked!) and see that my 2 Honda 2000i's are missing, as well as my tool bag and power cable.

Look in the pass through (locked) and my kids Traxxas RC car and some other smaller items are gone.

I am currently talking with my dealer but he is telling me I need to claim this on my Insurance and I told him that is not going to happen.

I told him I will return the RV before I will make a claim on my insurance.

Now waiting for their response but an email late yesterday seemed as though they may actually do something about it as they are asking for recepits (which I have ) for all items and I made a police report and provided serial numbers for the high ticket items as well.

Just looks to me that it was an inside job because some items from the pass through ended up in the front compartment.

But to top it all off, they still did not fix my trailer!!

That's to bad man!

Although I don't "clear" my camper out to go to my dealer I do take one or two things out to keep them honest.
They all have signs up that there not responsible for lost or stolen items but ultimately they should take care of it if they want your business and they appreciate there customers.

I would change the locks to something other than ch 751.

What was your unit in for?

Interior exterior protection, a bubble in the siding a water leak on the city connection, and door latches to keep the doors shut where slides are. leaky hatch door over the outdoor kitchen

Bubble was not fixed and they said they are sending pictures to Primetime.
The bubble was there before I bought the trailer and I had made previous arrangements to get this done because they said that the body shop was 3 weeks out.

Did not fix the leaky city water connection or the leaking kitchen faucet.

Now I realize these things happen, but when you go over every one of these things with a service writer and they don't get fixed and then your trailer gets "robbed" I found myself extreeeeemly upset.

I have now been given 2 new Hondas so the bulk of the loss has been recovered. Still out about $1000 and it needs to be returned to get the work done.

Thing was they assured me that if it is locked now it will stay locked so I said let me verify everything is locked and then I handed him the keys.

As far as changing my locks I would love to but dealer said that it always will be 3 keys and the hatches would be the same. (I said bull ^%$#) but thought better and decided to take it up with the director (which is whom I am dealing with now).

There is more to add but I am a horrible typer.

Updates soon.
