I have not locked mine and have had no problem so far. But then there's always a first time.

We locked ours to the cord, attached a new 25'cord to it and keep it in the electrical locker.

We use one all the time, without a lock--so far so good!

I have a Progressive IndustriesSurge Guard in my class C, 30 amp. I cut the cord about 2' and have the portable guard inside the locked compartment out of sight and weather. The only thing showing is the cord plugged into the pedestal. Too easy for someone to turn off the electricity, cut the cord and take the surge guard. Probably not going to happen but once would be too often.

I have a lock on mine. Got it at Camping World. I also lock the pedestal cover. Most of them have a place for a padlock.

I have had mine for a little over 4 years. It is locked to the power cord.

I just recently posted that I bought a KIT that will allow my portable Progressive Industries 50 amp EMS unit to become a connectable unit that now stays in my electrical compartment. This kit will now allow that, as it utilizes your current power cord and allows installation of the included female and male recepticles.

The portable unit stays out of sight!

HERE is my recent post about the above conversion

We have about 250 nights on ours with no problems. The lock was about $30 and I used a good combination lock. It is certainly worth the expense. We have on ocassion stayed at a few rough spots and I never gave it another though. I guess a their could saw through the metal, but it would probably wake me up first.

This electrical stuff is a little over my head. But, isn't that sort of similar to having a hard wired unit?

No, as I can plug it inline, or unplug it and not use it at all.

Absolutely. Lock it up, we RVers are a bunch of thieves. We stole everything we have and don't trust anybody.

What a disturbing thread!!!

Umm, Chas, I thiiink that's:

"Paranoia strikes deep, into your life it will creep."

Being from a larger urban area, it is a matter personal responsibility to be aware of possible "complications" to daily living. It's not paranoia if professional social predators are out to exploit what is percieved as easy prey.

This is a very naive statement.It would be great to have one of those "never locked my front door" lives,but it aint happening,not around here anyway's. Copper pipe is being stolen from new houses then sold for scrap,hows that for paranoia?

I camped next to a couple 2 weeks ago who had a nice locking setup for thiers.

thieves are cutting and stealing 30 and 50 amp cables for the copper in them now. i guess locks wouldn't help. they are drilling holes in gas tanks to steal your gas. i wonder what they do when they run out of 5 gal cans? i read that someone had both of their catcons stolen recently. it looks to me like you cannot always protect yourself from theft. i hope if someone cuts my cable, if fries their butt.
