A lock will stop the opportunistic thief. It won't mean anything to a professional thief, because they will come prepared with bolt cutters.

Unfortunately, with so many new RVers out this year, many of whom completely unprepared and under-funded (purchased an RV without counting all the costs), the opportunistic thefts might seriously increase.

I bought our Progressive Industries EMS 3 years ago along with a locking cable. Haven't used the locking cable in 2 years.
What's a thief gonna do with a surge protector anyway?


They'll do the same thing petty thieves do with iPhones and other electronics - sell it to an upstream buyer for $20 to someone that knows what it is and can resell it.

If it looks expensive and is accessible and they have the opportunity, someone will take it even if they don't know what it is.
