    Move to Texas. Many people here still leave their house and car doors unlocked. Why? Because every other person here is packing. ;) Not to start a political subject, but they can legalize gay marriage, but they can't take guns from Texas. Heck, a stolen gun in possession will net you 14-30 days in the County Jail here.

    Some [censored] stole my lunchbox today. Left it on the front seat of my Sandman ute. Had vegemite sangers and a lamington in it. All made with love by my mum. From now on I'm chaining my new lunchbox around the neck of my Rottweiler. He hates humans.

    Every time we have something stolen we get it back in under 40 minutes


    Enclosed trailers are lazy
    Thieves are lazy
    That's why they are attracted to enclosed trailers
    They know you haven't taken anything out
    Everything should be loaded and unloaded everyday
    Serviced, accounted for and confirmed in working order.

    Thieves will not load everything on you're trailer and then steal it
    1) they're too lazy
    2) it increases theyre chance 1000 percent that they get caught

    If they're caught hooking up to your trailer they just say
    "Huh? This is the wrong trailer?
    I was told to come here in hook up to this white trailer? This the wrong one?"
    Mdirrigation and TrainingWheels like this.

    What about handhelds? Do you just put the tracker under the shroud? Any problems with heat?
