I locked up my EMS for the first two years and haven't bothered for the last four. I do lock my Tailgater though most people I have seen with tailgaters don't bother. I only stay in full service commercial campgrounds so maybe that makes a difference.

I lock my stuff up to keep honest people honest. I do things I like and I hope you do to. I have fun and I hope you do. Do what you like is what I always say

Just thought I would ask. Our only other camping experience was with popups and we didn't worry about such things back then. Alas that was probably 25 years agot though.

I carry good insurance and I don't worry to much. I lock as much as I can up, no way you can stop a thief. Another camper told me about the watts water pressure regulator, I like it.

I'm more worried about it working. Purchased the 1st one and the gauge did not work so Valtera replaced it. 2nd on worked about two months then again gauge needle stuck. I contacted Valtera again and they wanted the receipt which I did not have. In the end I just gave up. As to theft it's like anything left outdoors.

Right to the CG spigot. On my second Valterra now. First one worked just fine, until I left it at a CG one trip. Oops.

I was going to bring up this point as well. I left a brass hose y on the spigot. Not a big loss, but I remembered this when I got my watts regulator. Stolen or forgotten, you're still missing it. Flip side argument, however, is that putting the regulator on the site spigot will prevent the hose from blowing from too high of a pressure.

I think now I will go right to spigot. If it walks off I will try the less expnsive ones with no gauge or adjustment.

I've never even given it a thought. I install mine right on the spigot. water connection is external on the trailer so no hiding it anywhere. I lock up my grill and spare propane tank when we leave. I really doubt most people even notice it, though 2 weeks ago my neighbor did and was asking about it as they had a water line blow in their class A at 4am. Only thing we ever had walk off was a small cooler with a cucumber in it. Assuming it was kids looking for beer. That campground is scribbled off the list of places we would return.

I carry both. The non-adjustable is a back up. I put the adjustable one on a Y-valve at the spigot.
As to thievery, I believe when it occurs it is more likely to be items of use to teenagers. I'm more concerned about my bike than my pressure regulator.
