Heard more about power cords (worth lots more than the battery).

Welded up a T bar to go over the top of the battery boxes and welded a bolt with a hole in it, put a nut on it and a padlock.

That went on our 08 Flagstaff 831RLSS when we traded it in 2012 along with big slide out drawers on rollers in the storage area and a couple of other mods.
