Angry Who would have thought they would steal my....

.....trailer hitch in Boise, Idaho. When going about town to shop someone stole my trailer hitch. Bodily's in Meridian, ID helped me out considerably in replacing it. So I recommend a lock for all hitches to anyone who travels. Prob should have thought of it but who woulda thunk..

They are stolen all the time, including one of my draw bars in Albuquerque. I was lucky it was an old El Cheapo. Take em off or lock em.

Last weekend I saw something really dumb. For some unknown reason, maybe they thought it was easier, someone near Santa Fe left a whole weight distributing hitch attached to their Sovereign in a very public campground. The $500+ weight distributing hitch was still coupled to the coach. The owner just pulled the draw bar pin and drove off for 2 1/2 days.

This person (I hope you are listening) also left her dog with no food and a shelter that blew away. This was in the Sangre de Christo Mountains at 8500'. There was heavy frost both nights.I fed the short haired dog several times, set up the shelter and I was the guy who called animal control.

Some people lock their hitches to their TV, some lock them to their trailer. Not locking a hitch is asking for trouble.

Marshall - Thank you for the care you showed the dog and I am glad you made that call. I would have done the same thing in a heart beat.

One of the reasons we are Airstreamers is because we have a dog. It's people like this that will ruin it for all of us pet owners in the future at RV Parks. They have enough rules now and its for those pet owners that don't respect others.

In the future maybe along with animal control removing the animal maybe a tow truck could remove the trailer too.

Thank you for stepping in with help!! Our furkids are way too important part of the family for any of them to be mistreated! Did those people have an emergency or did they have someone who failed to take care of the pet?? Sounds fishy! *)* We've seen some sights on the road that make you wonder why these people have animals!!!

Thanks again for helping the little guy out!

You wonder how some of these people actually survive themselves.

I refer to them as people from the shallow end of the gene pool.

I always put a pad lock in the pin. Not that they can't take, but I'm determined to make it as difficault as possible.

Yep, and the pool is empty.

Thanks so much for helping the pup. I'd have done exactly the same.

We use a pin lock instead of the traditional hitch pin .It uses a round
style key and a rubber cover that keeps it dirt an moisture free .Hope I
never lose the key though ,no ones gonna get the hitch thats for sure .
I keep the WD bars in the Travelall so they are with the vehical all the time .
