    Same here, full replacement insurance through Erie is around 50 bucks a year. Very worth it in my opinion.

    Shitchea. Different companies have different rules, I suppose. I deal with Farm Bureau, but as long as my stuff is covered, I'm happy!

    I'll definitely be adding my trailer when I get it.

    The red one is a beast, solid, would be hell to get it off fast. I had one. Most places started selling the stamped POS for the same price.

    Not a lock but one could have the last laugh with a shotgun duck taped up in a tree and some fishing line.
    Might get the trailer but they'd probably need a change of pants when it was over.

    Doesn't take much to defeat any store bought lock I've seen.

    A sledge hammer would remove that too.

    I've been looking for something. I currently just keep it boxed in with a beater cherokee... but maybe I need to invest in a big chain or something.

    I do insurance for a living... and I didn't think of using inland marine. Doh. Ill be quoting myself tomorrow lol

    Edit: Turns out the reason I never thought of Inland Marine was because it is only for Commercial, which I rarely write lol

    This is what we did at home to slow a thief down.

    It's not unbeatable but, even the safety chains are locked up.

    Something like that but with the top of the lock recessed inside so cutters couldn't get to it would be nice.

    it might have been said a couple times already but IMO, a huge kryptonite or similar brand hardened chain lock or super thick cable lock around the wheels is better than a tongue lock. Couple that with one of the $30 red tongue locks and you're getting somewhere.
