If someone is determined to steal something, they're gonna figure out how to steal it. We can't make it impossible, but maybe can make it 'not worth the trouble'

Securing a SurgeGuard

I got a MasterLock cable lock. Pretty easy to use. Won't stop a determined thief but helps. Click image for larger version

I haven't ever locked mine up. Progressive portable management system still here after 5 years and over 20,000 miles. Actually, I have never had anything stolen while in a campground.

X2, have not locked it. In the past 11 months, over 50 different campgrounds, nothing ever stolen. Well actually the DW had a $2 nylon laundry bag go missing from one campground laundry area but figure someone had the same one and took it by mistake.

we used to lock all the basement storage areas and camper doors at home until they broke in causing $1,500 damage to the door and $750 to both basement doors. There is nothing in there worth the damage.
