X2. That's where I keep mine too. On a never to be used again towel. Keep the hitch there too. If I left mine at home I would probably forget to take it with me when I go to get the TT out of storage.

Battery Box

I added that Harbour Freight toolbox to my ROO 21ss. I had to move the propane tanks forward, and slit my propane cover make it fit. I store two batteries in it with pieces of hard foam rubber and plywood covering the batteries. I strap batteries down with bungees. That leaves room in the back of the box for the bars. I ordered new locks and cylinders from Global, and was able to change out the toolbox to the ROO keys. Now I only need one key for my ROO. Life is good. I mounted my charge controller for my solar battery charger on the outside of the box.

I just store the hitch and all the parts in the front cubby while camping. I slip a grocery bag over the greasy end of the bars to keep the floor of the cubby (and me) from getting slimed. At home, I store it all in the garage.

I guess there's always a 1st time, but anyone ever heard of them getting swiped?

When we towed the tt, I made brackets to stow and lock the bars on the tongue. worked fine.

With hitch components, it's more than the physical cost of the item. You will left unable to move your trailer until you acquired replacements.

Front storage at home. On the ground or the tongue at the C.G.

I simply place them under my camper A frame while camping. I doubt someone would want to life them. While at home I keep them in the garage.

I like the idea of the cushioned shotgun case. That would work perfect.

Can you attach a pic of your toolbox and where it is installed?

I lay them across the frame, back of battery box. I have a long chain that will go thru a link on the bar chains, wraps around frame channel and lock it. I also run it thru a hole in the hitch ball when storing, works well!
