I have a lock that covers my pin. Keeps the grease off when I whack my head on it .

I have insurance.
I could put locks on my wheel chocks, and might when leaving the camper someplace other than my house or the campground.

As with anything, if someone wants it bad enough, they will take it.

After seeing how easy it was to drive away after forgetting to remove my X-Chocks, don't put too much faith in them stopping a thief. They wrinkle up and fall out.

BO, I am here to tell you that you did not invent that trick for removing the X Chocks. [emoticon]

True. How many owners have issues hooking & dropping?

A following post was going to ask a police neighbor about 5W thefts. 25 years in a tourist area and zero RV thefts, some utility and flat beds, some small boats on trailers, NO RV's.

I use a collar lock that slides around the king pin with a sliding lock mechanism. Also how easy would it be for a truck with a rail or other fifth wheel setup just to pull up to a dangling 5’ver hitch, hook up, and drive away. My question is, what kind of lock to use when using a tripod?
