Securing Batteries.
 
Has anyone had a problem with their batteries being stolen.

Never had a problem with that.
We camp mainly in provincial parks.

Heard more about power cords (worth lots more than the battery).

My buddy at work, who happens to live a half mile away, said two of his neighbors had theirs stolen. Mine are locked.

2000 Cherokee 31BH, "flipped axles and raised",LEDs, solar, inverter, etc..aka "boondock ready". '07 Tundra 5.7L DC-LB, modded as well.

That's what happens when people start buying 6V's instead of 8D's!
If they can't lift 'em they can't steal 'em! :D

Welded up a T bar to go over the top of the battery boxes and welded a bolt with a hole in it, put a nut on it and a padlock.

That went on our 08 Flagstaff 831RLSS when we traded it in 2012 along with big slide out drawers on rollers in the storage area and a couple of other mods.
