Ray and Tom probably have the easiest solution. I had twin B series Cummins on my boat, they were both manual engines - no ECM and it would have been easy to install a hidden fuel solenoid shutoff switch. With later model engines it might be different though.
I really wouldn't worry though, not likely the coach will get stolen if you take normal precautions. If you're really worried install a steering wheel lock.

Thanks but looking for an easier and more secure method.
I have Two kill switches side by side.
They come as standard equipment or you can update.
Both and all sets of batteries are Disabled.

The booster switch is rendered useless..

What Percentages of rvs get stolen ?

You must go places that I have never been .

But

Goid luck.

Find the wire to the Allison transmission computer and put a switch on that.

No power no start.

That will prevent releasing the spring brakes, but does nothing to prevent a thief from foor-boarding the throttle and either burning up the tranny or spring brakes-or damaging the engine.
It will prevent a neutral runaway, so perhaps both would be best.

Just my two cents. A thief will spend time and tools to enter the vehicle, more time and tools starting the vehicle, they may loose interest if they need to find or enter a third lock. I know for a fact my coach wouldn’t make it up the driveway with the spring brakes on. Just a cheap deterrent plus other safety advantages. A lock out switch should be on every vehicle but we all know finding the time to install such a network of parts will never come.
There are good quality alarm systems that can be added that will provide a start lockout and can track the vehicle if towed, but typically over $1,300 installed.

Find the wire going to the starter solenoid trigger wire and put a toggle switch in between, mount the switch in a convenient secret spot. I did this on a few of the classic cars I owned, very easy to do.
