Only thing that I lock up is the Dish Network Tailgater. Cable it to what ever is close by. Anything else they can have if it's that important to the thieves. Never have had a problem.

Sorry I don't have a pic but I have a piece of coated 1/8" cable 30' long that I have coiled up in one of my bays. One end is bolted inside the bay. Depending on where we are and for how long, I run the cable out and through all of our stuff like BBQ, chairs, tables etc and then install a padlock at the end. Bay door closed and locked.
I have a loop on the end that I crimped to facilitate the lock.
I suppose it would just take a good bolt cutter to chop it but then locks are only for honest people.

In 20 years of camping the only thing we ever lost was a clean empty cooler that we use to keep fish in and it was a four leg critter (black bear) that took it.

Don't know about you but I think I would rather the bear take the cooler than to have it locked to the RV and the bear trying to do what bears do with coolers! Lol.

dennis45: This sounds like a great idea! We leave bikes out but sometimes have to find a tree/pump/fence to lock them to. Kayaks stay on the TJ. A long cable would make it easier for both things! Thanks! \ken

If a real thief wants your stuff, he will bring what he needs to overcome your efforts to secure it.
I have only lost one thing, a pair of muli-colored suspenders for my tool belt, in many years of camping. I lock my bay doors to keep the honest people honest. If they want what is outside, my God bless them because maybe they need it more than I do.

In over 40 years I've had one thing stolen. my cooler sitting under the RV. It was full of beer, some steaks, hamburger,etc. When the cops found the cooler two teenage boys were sitting beside it drinking the beer. They had thrown the meat over in the bushes.
This CG was a city park beside their rodeo arena. The cooler disappeared while we attended the night event, along with almost everyone else in the CG.

Must be a Walmart there. ;-)
