Tongue/Hitch Lock

Looking for some suggestions. I am trying to find a good and solid coupler hitch lock for my Jayco. I have no problem spending good money for one. But after doing some research, and reading reviews, I am totally at a loss. We store
our trailer at RV storage lot. Any and all suggestions is most appreciated.

This site carries both hitch and receiver locks. Sounds like you need a receiver lock.

I just cut the shaft off a 2 5/16 ball and placed the Ball into the hitch and put a good grade lock on the lever release! You are only going to "Delay" a thief not Stop them! Youroo!! I see that your TT is a "Jayco" that would have to be a "Desperate Thief" to steal one of those! LOL!

I have been using the DT25013 for 7 years. Works great for me.

The only thing that I think works is something like this Anti Theft Wheel Lock Clamp Boot Tire Claw Parking Car Truck RV Boat Trailer | eBay

I use a 3 foot piece of heavy chain through the wheels and a heavy lock. Yes you could take the tires off and put on others, but trailer will not move far with the wheels chained.

Nothing is 100% Chains can be easily cut esp. cheap mild steel ones like purchased at a home improvement store, locks can also be cut or picked. Nothing is 100% but it will slow them down or they will move to an easier target. A boot type on the wheel might be best if they can't get the wheel off.

Cable wheel Lock idea

I purchased a 3/4" thick cable for my 2nd motorcycle 2 generations ago that has a ball lock. I have kept it all these years and just now have a very good use for it. Wrap it thru the wheel and axle. Can't get but a few revs before wheel stops turning. Can't take the wheel off without removing the axle.
Wrap the 2 wheels together and see what they say.
