Attempted Break In

I store my DX3 in a gated almost secure storage lot that is part of a 55+ year old Master Planned Community in St George, UT. Was at the RV yesterday afternoon and then went back today a little before noon to find some would be thief had tried to break into it. The pictures show the damage to the RV entrance (don't know why they got rotated). Good news is that they didn't get in just damaged the black trim around the door. Both locks work...from the inside. The door frame has a couple of scratches and the dead bolt may be slightly bent. They also tried the cab doors but didn't do much damage.


It looks like the outer frame of the door can be replaced?


Only other rig that was messed with was a Jayco Super C; had his entrance lock screwed up but not the door. Guess the thief new Class when he saw it and only wanted to get into a Dynamax

Thats too bad. Looks like an amateur too. Hard to believe in a gated community locked up.

Sorry to hear about the attempted break in.

I have no idea how difficult that door would be to fix. The lock looks like a complicated repair with that keyless entry system.

Unfortunately a gated community doesn't guarantee that someone can't jump a fence or find another way into your storage. Around here it's Spring Break Week and bored children find all sorts of ways to relieve their boredom.

Hope you get it fixed soon and that it doesn't cause you to delay a trip.

I don't know if the door edge extrusion is available by itself or whether you will end up replacing the whole door.

I would contact Dynamax and see what they have to say.

To the best of my knowledge, the doors are built in a jig and replacing an extrusion that holds it together may not be feasible.

We were concerned about break ins.

While traveling if they are crazy enough to face a pissed off Airedale terrier so be it. They like to bite too much.

We have insurance. But, frankly, there is not a lot to steal in our rv. Who wants a Jensen 50” tv. Or a cast iron skillet.

My whiskey I would miss.

Built in appliances are too hard to steal.

My Honda 2200 maybe if he has a good bolt cutter.

The wife does not take sparklies with us.

My wallet is in my pocket. The terrier is with me at night.
