Talking surge protector

I purchased a surge protector for my Class C, some one some where here in the forum stated they mount there protector to the RV.
Or any ideas to keep it from being stolen while hooked up at a site?

two keyed alike locks and 4 feet of chain.
One lock and end of chain between the plug and body the other around the power pole

Those concerned with park pilferage usually buy hardwired Power Management Systems. I use the Progressive Industries which is more than just a surge protector. If you bought a plug in, there is a "jaw" that locks over the female end of the surge guard and the male end of you cord.

When we owned the Jayco Whitehawk TT and all we had was the 30 amp portable surge guard, I disconnected the shore power cord which was connected inside a rear storage compartment with the TT wiring(there was an electrical junction box in there), bought a female and a male 30 amp plug....put the female on the TT wires and the male on the end of the shore power cord where it was disconnected....then simply connect the portable surge protector to those new female and male plugs inside that back compartment which was always locked....then at a campsite, simply plug in to the post....btw, if those outside storage compartments have the #751 locks, you should change those locks so everyone does not have a key.
