I had a Carryout stolen that was locked with aircraft cable at a park a tear ago. The park ranger knew who had it but was unable to find it. I watched the houses close to the camp but never saw it during our stay. The new one has a large chain.
As far as Indiana I was concerned with cooker theft and golf cart borrowing.

The items most likely to get stolen, l.p. tanks and battery are a PIA to put in a safe each time I leave. Don't agree with OC all the time but he is spot on. Insurance for anything big.

Passports (if in the USA) go in my purse. Phones in pocket or purse with cash and credit cards. Doors locked for insurance purposes and to keep anyone from stealing the dog. Never had anything taken in over 35 years of camping.

If your going to install a lock box for a extra key why not install a keyless entry on your RV. I just bought one from Lippert at Goshen. It has a key fob, a keyless touch pad, and a totally different key for the door. A different approach to security thing.

We bought the same one..... Then had to return it when it didn't fit our door. Turns out they weren't compatible with the FIC handles (per Lippert rep).

If the sky will permit it (I have a clear signal), I climb up and put mine on the roof of my rig..... If not, then I just place it out front.... I figure that if they're gonna steal it, they've already scoped it out and know what they have to have in order to do it - lock cutters, etc.... Smartest thing to do I guess, is to take it in at bed time or when you leave the rig for extended periods..... Mine is an automatic unit, so it locks on quickly.....

Like I said on another post,
I'll install a safe when I have something worth more than the safe to put in it (LOL)


Started Out With Nothing,
Still Have Most Of It Left!

We are the same way as CCW holders and sometimes we have to "put the kids to bed" depending on state and local rules. We did purchase and excellent product by console vault that turns your armrest console into a really sturdy safe. Not to say that anything is "foolproof" but I doubt most "people of opportunity" would be carrying around the tools needed to get in this.
