Negative.

I actually ordered my stuff online yesterday and are en route.

I believe you might have to use some sort of cable lock and wrap it around something immobile, but I'm not sure.

Hopefully, someone who has this particular surge/voltage protector can chime in and help both of us out.

So far we've replaced the stereo, replaced the very small hinges on the bed (to access the underbed storage) with some much bigger ones that shouldn't rip off this time, a small tabletop grill, a rug for outside, a couple outside chairs, and we built a set of wooden steps to get in the rig.

We have a small freezer chest and storage shed on order, and will be putting a small fridge in it. We're full-time rv'ing while we work on the road for our full-time job, and need a bit more space, and now I'll be able to cook some meals in bulk and freeze them.

Also on our list is a screen that attaches to the owning to enclose that space under the awning, and a generator.

Hi Peacekepper6 &Bucksmom I made a lock for my surge protector, I got a piece of 1/8" cable and wrapped it around one of the wires coming out of the S/P and crimped it with a sleeve (get them at the Depot where they have the cable,you cinch them closed with a hammer, they are figure 8 shaped) make sense so far? Take the other end and make a loop, long enough to wrap around you power line and to slip a padlock thru so you can lock it. I'll take a picture when I get back to RV

Two MaxxAir II, a Fan/Mate, and a Vortex replacement fan (3 forward speeds/2 reverse speeds). All work great!
We had heavy rains here today, and not a single drop of water cam in through the vents.
The Vortex fan woke well also. Not as high air flow as the Fantastic Fan in the head, but still a good air flow. Sound wise, about the same as the Fantastic Fan, but at a higher pitch. The fan was installed in the bedroom, where there wasn't a fan before. Luckily, the 12vdc wires for the lights ran behind the garnish, all I had to do is tap into those lines. It took about 15minutes to install the fan.
It was so nice and cool afterwards, and with the sound of the rain on the slide toppers, I took a little nap after I finished!

A Morningstar 300 watt pure sine wave inverter to power things that do not like the modified sine wave I now have. Now I have to get it installed.
