Locks are like computer (in)security... they keep semi-honest men honest.

I will be doing the install on the new trailer this week and will try to post some pictures as I do the work. Last time it just took about an hour.

Ok, bear with me. For security reasons if I buy the portable power management, I was thinking of plugging the RV power-cord into the pedestal, then plugging the PM into the end of the rv power-cord. The PM will be secured inside a compartment. From there, running a shorter power-cord from the PM to the camper. Thoughts?

That seems overly complicated IMHO. If you going to go with the portable one, just run a chain or a cable through the metal ring.

I'm not even sure it would plug into the female end of your cord if it's the twist lock.

I believe that locks give semi-dishonest people incentive. The surest way to tell other people who might not normally know that something's valuable is to put a lock on it.

This is the logic I use as an excuse for my laziness in not locking up my portable unit. I figure if I lock it, people will know it's valuable and try to take it. But if I don't, then they don't give it a second glance.

At least that's the story I'm sticking with.

I'm going seasonal this year and the pedestal is situated in a way where my PM would be hanging over another campers 30A outlet. Yup, mine is right above his. It's complicated all right. I'll figure something out.

Well, in that case I have used mine in between my 30A extension and the trailer cord (which has the same twist locks like yours at the trailer end). You could just get the shortest cord you can find to run pedestal to PI, then run PI to trailer.
