Maybe common sence isn''t so common for some in some parts of the country anymore.....if you un- lock the doors when hitch'n up and don' t lock 'em up till your back to where you started from, what's the problem?

If I was a thief and I wanted your tanks a slam latch would NOT stop me.
A simple crow bar or nail bar or even the old tire tool and I've got the door
open and now you need tanks AND a new door and frame.

Probably hasn't happened.......to the cars.......Yet ......... so not regulated...... but several propane fires have happened in tunnels. One RV fire shut one of the tunnels on I77 in Virginia for 3-4 months several years ago while repairs were made.

more valuable things to steal around home than propane bottles. Not worth the time.. aaaaaand why just stop at the bottles...... here they would leave the bottles & steal the trailer..........

Learned something new at our U-Haul.

There are two prices for propane.

They rang up the 30 pound bottles at $4.09 per gallon, but when I squawked I mentioned that it was for my RV they reduced it to $3.09

Nothing was written anywhere about there being 2 price structures.

We are very fortunate, we have a fenced in storage place that requires key code access and there are tons of cameras around. In storing there for 7+ years, the only thing we have lost there is our dogs when they take off chasing rabbits.

I have a tiny 900 watt generator that I store under the camper and use to charge the batteries at least once a month but usually weekly during Camper Sunday afternoon movies. I don't even bother cable locking it. I guess we are fortunate.
Yes, fortunate. Our storage facility is gated ands needs code access. Still have had theft. Not big items. Wheel chocks, tire covers, power cord, and brake away cable (?) And a few attempts at the propane tanks.

I know they offer 2 different prices, portable propane tanks per gallon and alternate fuel vehicle price which is about 70 cents cheaper around here. Check the website.
