It's no better than any other as far as hitch locks go, IMO. A thief will still simply use your own safety chains to haul it away to where he can take the time to remove the lock.

If you don't lock the wheels from turning.... the trailer can be towed away.

A cable thru the wheels secured by a good lock or some sort of difficult boot is as good as it gets.

This combined with a Spot Trace GPS tracker

Give me the peace of mind I was looking for. YMMV.
Sorry to be dense but it wasn't clear to me if the Spot Trace required the annual fee. If it was just something that I could locate it whenever I wanted that would be sufficient, but I'm not big on paying for an annual fee just to get alerts. Is the annual fee required? Thanks!

Hitch lock?

Yes it is.

It alerts you any time your AS moves and uses satellite instead of cellular. I donít have good cell service in my RV park but I get my status messages consistently.

These things cost money to maintain.

For what ever that means.

I think this is about as good as you can get for the average snatch and grab.

If it's a professional looking for a large item like a camper trailer there's nothing you can do that will stop them.

.45cal if you are on site.

I have this tracker on Boat, Airstream, and my Drones:
Trackimo TRKM002 GPS Tracker and Locator

Replacement insurance always.

We like the CA Immobilizer. We also run a huge padlock through the safety chains, put a lock through the hitch release, and buy insurance. No guns. If you want my trailer that bad, take it and Iíll have insurance buy me another one. Itís only stuff.

Can we all stop bragging about guns and fire arms (I hate when my arms catch fire) long enough to talk instead about Airstreams and how, in this thread, to lock them up the best we can? Jeepers!

Hitch lock?

That Trimax is easily defeat with a sledge, crow/bar, and even heavy duty bolt cutters. There is a video on another thread showing how easy it is to defeat it.

Check it out here

If I wanted your trailer....I'd take your trailer.

I'd bring my own chains and drag it away and not give a damn about your locks. Your wheel lock would be defeated with a portable, battery-powered die-grinder with a cutting wheel.

The locks do discourage the amateur and buy a little time for the thief to be discovered in-action, but that is all.

And the announcements that you are armed makes you vulnerable and gives away surprise. The dumbest thing an NRA member can do is put that sticker on the back window of the pickup truck. Anyone will approach you with a hand on the pistol and an attitude about you.

Even If I were a supporter...The last thing I'd ever want is my real name/address to be on any controversial group's membership list.

IMO

I just purchased the AS coupler lock from Proven Industries.
Yes, it was expensive, and if I'd had seen the California immobilizer I might have tried that one (for $99). The Proven Coupler lock is designed for the AS coupler (and only the AS) and has a couple holes for a padlock to secure your safety chains. Smaller chains can go inside the lock case, but not mine.

The best security would be this lock with a section of chain from Pewag tied to a tree. But at $15 a foot, it's too much for me. We can make the trailer so locked up we never use it because of all the locks.
