These are all great solutions. I myself was kind of hoping to figure out some way to simply lock the tank cover latch. To me it stops folks from messing around with the tank valves. In retrospect though, in my case mine is stored indoors, and the odds are low that someone may even mess with the tanks in the first place, but hey, if but nothin' else, I may just get those dual locks that I saw here...quick, cheap and easy.

Thanks "2dabeach"....

I just finished up installing my tank lock based on your idea and it works great !!!!

Photo attached as I know people always like to see...

Also, the white thing is my remote temp/humidity sensor that is mounted with velcro inside the propane tank cover. It has been riding there for over 15,000 miles and hasn't fallen off yet so I guess it is stuck on good. I never remove it when driving.

Couple other pics are the inside unit for the temp/humidity meter which is also just put on with velcro onto the wood cabinet above the stereo.

Nice and warm here today in Maryland -- 61 . 5 degrees and 45% humidity - so I am taking care of a few maintenance items before hitting the road next week for Florida.

anyway, thanks again for the lock idea.

regards, Dave

I don't know if someone would want your propane tanks this bad or not, but it looks like some of the lock setups could be defeated by just unscrewing the rod instead with a pair of pliers. If and when my lock setup finally arrives, I'm planning to bend the bottom end of the new stainless allthread rod in a "U" at the bottom, so it can't easily be unscrewed "out from under" the locking nut.

I'll also be putting a fairly loose piece of stainless tubing over the allthread, to further discourage cutting, at least in the middle of the rod.

If someone needs a tank of propane bad enough to lay in the dirt under the trailer and unbend the rod - well, I guess they can have it.

I just purchased a Fortress GasLock from Colonial AS in NJ (called in order) I researched it and it looks like a solid piece of equipment that locks the tanks - not the cover. Colonial sells the Fortress that is made for AS. Most thieves are looking for easy scores, so this offers a real challenge. Hopefully they will move on to an easier target. It is in the $60 range. When my tanks were stolen, it cost way more to replace the tanks, pay for purging and paying for 2, 30 gallon fills.

At least this is just a little hop........only 2000 miles to SW FL.

Where in FL? Are you going to Alumaflamingo? Our WBCCI Suncoast Unit will be there as a group. Looking forward to it. We live a short distance and always enjoyed Sarasota.
