I'm still around but don't have much time to devote since I'm busy getting the dome and convention center ready for the Final Four tournament.

Yes I did talk about this topic some time ago. There had been reports from some folks who stopped at resturants who had receiver hitch pins pulled while they were inside eating.

We always stay with the trailer when traveling and don't go to eat inside at resturants when towing. Our biggest reason is due to the fact that we travel with 2 dogs.

In many cases though we will overnight and will not unhitch. I always recheck everything prior to departure just in case something happens overnight while we sleep.

Folks who do this type of sabotage are pretty sick. If you are one who stops at resturants during travel time, you might consider carrying an extra hitch pin with you as a backup. Even if you catch a theft prior to departing the parking lot, it still would require you coming up with a temporary pin while you attempt to get a replacement.
Better to keep a backup. They aren't expensive.

I bought a Master Lock hitch pin. I love it. It not only locks the hitch in, but also any hitch plugs (Airstream has a real fancy $50 one that dubs as a step). At any rate, it can't be removed or modified without a key or a cutting torch.

I like Tom's plan but it would break my heart to dump her. Don't travel with propane on, ever. I put cold food in a fridge prechilled the night before. A few frozen items keeps the whoel thing cold for a day of travel. I wonder if they make that snake alarm for trailers. Or better yet get a real good looking rubber rattlesnake and wrap it around the hitch.
