During Katrina (yes, that mega storm) trailers were being stolen that had locks on the coupler but the tow ball location was not covered. It's really simple. The crook would take a 2' tow ball and saw off a third of the hemisphere. This would then be slipped into the socket WITH the hitch lock on and the new flat face facing the hitch catch then rotated 90 degrees. Then the receiver bar would be slid into the TV and they would drive away - BTW the stabilizer bars and front jack were often not retracted - they would sheer right off. Most were not after the camper for resale, just the contents and other valuables like copper and aluminum.
