I will be buying a honda gen (2000) and I think that I want to secure it to my PU bed 2003 F250 Shortbed... How would I do this and where would I place it....I will be buying from wisesalesw.com they have aux tank also.
I will get the covers ...
Is this a good idea??? Should I bolt it down?? or just chain it...If I bolt it dawn can I take it out after the season (I caddy on the LPGA Golf tour)
I have gotten good advice here and I appreciate it all/...
IF you don't fasten it down securely somehow, it may 'go for a walk'. Chain and lock is better than nothing, although I have heard of a 2000 which was stolen even then. Bolting it down might be the best method; then just unbolt it at the end of the season.

I keep mine chained in back of my aux tank and in front of my 5th hitch with the covers on them. I have never had a problem but there is always that chance. With that said a chain through the handle and around the hitch makes a lot of noise when chaining and un-chaining.
I bought a large plastic storage box that I drilled a hole through each side. I ran a cable lock through the hole and around the generator handle. There was room in the box for spare gas etc. When using the generator I place it on the ground and lock it to the truck or trailer.
