I have plenty of room in my electric bay to mount our Hughes inside, but with the length of the power cord, I can hook it to the post, then set it under the coach (out of sight) and use a bike cable like just for the heck of it. For the most part, unless you're camping in a real dump, theft will not be an issue. Also I only use ours when there is an actual low voltage issue being as I already have a build in surge guard.
