Thanks for the tip about keeping the repair bills for income tax! It can't hurt to try. There are cameras but not all of them record. I don't expect much from the staff at all which is why I quit them.

TURBS
There's been a lot of this crime in the general area. I have a family member that is a police officer. He recommended finding a new place in another area. You are lucky that you can keep your unit safely at home.

Sorry to hear of the lowlifes hitting your unit Terier, I am also lucky to be able to store my 5er at home. I still do a walk around at least once a day and it's parked right in front of "my" side of the garage.

Only one thing worse than a liar and that's a thief, which is usually both.

Stories like this one help me appreciate even more that I can store our rig next to our home instead of a storage facility!
Good Luck on moving away from this storage lot for a better peace of mind

Hi Cajun Po-Boy,

Thanks for your comments. Having the unit at your house can give you peace of mind besides being easier to get ready for a trip.

On another note
I called Allstate just to inquire and found out that the stolen items are covered under my policy. But better yet - I don't have a deductible. Not only that - it won't go against me or raise my rates.



I almost changed my low deductibles a couple weeks ago but things got confusing so I waited.

I keep mine at home but I'm just wondering, if you pay someone for a service such as storage do they assume any responsibility for the security of your property?

My contract with this storage place provides a clause that they cannot be held responsible. I am assigned a parking space. Now if I had a storage unit/garage then that could change things provided certain things falls into place like using their locks.

Update

More bad news:
My power cord, power cord extension, amp adapter, 2 fresh water hoses, water regulators (2), inline water filter, storage bins, storage bags and other misc. items were taken too. Stuff was moved around so I didn't notice the missing items.

The service manager is going to go through everything as he was setting up camp as a way to take inventory. I'm making up a list of items for him to check too.

Some good news:
I found a new good place to keep the trailer at. They will even turn the fridge on and check the air in the tires. Other than having indoor storage I couldn't be happier!

I was in the area so I dropped by the old storage place this evening and spoke with the manager. They have an idea of when the theft took place along with other clues too.

This is California! I'm sure they have a waiver in the rental agreement or signs relieving them of responsibility.

Terier, Sorry about your theft loss but it sounds like it's getting worked out for you. Other than the hassle. I hope you come out ok. If you were closer we would help you with the "heavy stuff"...

Sorry to hear. i wonder if it could have been someone that keeps their unit there. Last year at our storage lot, I was looking at the straps on my propane tanks. They have a place to put locks on them to secure them in the compartments. I decided to install the locks and the next weekend when i went to get the camper the comapartments were open and it appeared that someone tried to remove the tanks by pulling on them. Whomever never got them. Think about it, switching tanks to avoid the cost of filling your own. A few years ago someone took the wheel cover off the spare on our TT. I pulled it off of another camper. my wife asked how did I know it was ours. I turned it over and showed her our name and pointed out that their camper wasn't a Keystone, Wheel chocks seem to be taken a lot, and someone pulled all of the power cables out of the campers and cut them for the copper.

When I bought my TT the dealer told me that the key to the outside storage compartments is the same for most trailers. The first thing I did when I got home was to change all the locks. This won't stop a determined thief but at least I'm not going to make it easy for him.
