Lock it up.

A big concern would be leaving you trailer in a parking lot while you're driving to appointments. If you do I'd lock it with the best wheel locks and hitch lock.

Why just 40 watts of solar? Adding 100-200 watts would charge your one batter faster and you'd have a fully charged batter every night. Boondocking is the best when it quiet.

If you choose wrong you're going to have a vehicle that isn't safe to tow the trailer. Get a tow vehicle that can tow the weight, not because it's small.
