I use these gun locks for many things. Locking generator in truck or onto a cargo rack. Spare tires to boat trailer and ATV trailers. Gas cans, etc. Not theft proof but may stop an opportunist.

We are all victims when we lose so much faith in the honesty and integrity and respect of and for our fellow man. We all work hard for every thing that we have and love and want to protect all of those near and dear to us. Each and everyone of us can plan and train and prepare for every event imaginable and as you know a split second to the left or right is all that could stand in the way of life or death, happiness or dis pare. I have never been one to stand in the crowd and watch when events unfold. I will refrain from giving you my full resume (I work with and know many police, firemen and EMTs, I know their lives and hardships of the work they do and the stress that they under go, it is very hard for many of them to just 'relax' for they are all 'on call' every minute of the day), but I will let you know too, that if I were looking for a legally armed person, the search would be short, because I am already there. When the SHTF, I have already refused to be a victim, but to survive and thrive. You are one of those also. I respect that. I want to offer my apologies to you, Captain for my tone and words as they came out. Life is to short to not to be lived. We will meet in a campground one day and I know that we can sit down together for a drink and food and conversion and look over the grounds and know that all is well for there are those watching who care, because you and I are sheep dogs watching over the flock.

Thanks for the apology and I guess I owe an apology also. I took your statement as an attack. Guess I was wrong. Stay safe, train hard. We'll share that beverage some day.

Most of the time I camp in sunny, hot climates. To protect my power cord from the sun, I run it through Sch 40 PVC conduit from the power post to the trailer. Not sure if this would work against theft, but the cord/connectors are completely covered. Just throwing it our here.

Secure Surge Protector

Try this, take a good size pad lock, slide the surge cable between the u shaped shank, take a chain and wrap it around the power post then run the lock thru the chain and close the shank. They might get your regular power cord but not the surge protector. Surge protector 350.00 bucks, chain & lock, priceless.
