I never thought of running it through the wheel to keep the trailer from being stolen. When I leave my trailer for the day while I'm boondocking I have an anti theft clamp on the hitch and locking stabilizers between the tires.This is great as I have people camping near me and I'm sure they will hear it.

Yes I understand. We too have a hitch lock but it is "economically challenged" and probably easily defeatable. So I decided to run my cable thru the wheel.

I too am always concerned about the safety of my family and carry for that reason. Fortunately, only reason to even pull it out was for coyotes coming into the campground and began to circle my dogs. They are large dogs so they could hold there own but I had their back!

Several years ago a man and his wife drove on a claim by mistake and a guy walked up and pointed a gun at the wife .The other guys at the claim pulled the driver out of the truck and pushed him around ,threatend him and sent him on his way.Do that to me and you will think the devil came to town. Turns out the scumbags at the claim did not own it, they were claim jumping. They were arrested is all I know of the case.I hope I never have to use a gun but I got them and it gives me piece of mind.

Just a friendly FRF moderator reminder...

Before we get too much further down the path of who carries what and why, please re-familiarize yourself with the rule regarding gun discussions here on FRF.

If you are really worried about someone making off with your Honda 2000 just put it inside your RV. I have one and that is where I put if I am worried about theft. Normally I use a security cable through the handle and around the frame. But when in doubt I put it inside. I use a plastic tray that is sold to put wet winter boots on when it is inside. With the fuel shutoff it has and the valve on the gas cap keep fume out of the RV. Fortunately I haven't been staying in places where I have to worry too much. Mostly I do this in unfamiliar camp sites

Mine still has a slight gas smell and my wife would have a fit. I put a 5' table next to the trailer under the awning with the generator stored there at night. If a storm blows in I retract my awning and if its raining its protected under the table.The cable is looped through the shackle or to the back bumper.I think I will be ok with an alarm and a cable lock. If I ever find the device I'm looking for I'll post a picture.

That got me thinking about a better place to put the cable. I would hate to find a shackle cut while I'm 400 mi from home. Friends have warned me to not drill a hole in the frame as it migh give me a weak spot. One friend that goes to the dunes all the time where thieft is high said he has seen a lockable clamp that goes on the frame and the cable was secured to it. Does anyone know of this or a better Idea to safely secure a cable to the frame. Thank You Mike

This might be something to consider if I decide to carry the generator on my rear bumper.I like the padlock and the way it covers the locking pin. Thanks, Mike
