    I think I understand.... On my trailer (kayak trailer), when hooked up, I have the above pictured receiver lock and a lock on the trailer tongue. When parked and separate from the truck, I use a tongue lock, an additional padlock on the tongue release, a wheel lock and 11mm chain from frame to a buried ground anchor. Is it defeatable? Sure but I wanted to make it a major PITA for thieves and that could prove to be a deterrent....

    Okay - I meant lube the hell out of them or whatever you may think is necessary. It was simply more of a blanket statement to warn you not to leave them in there exposed to the elements.

    Ditto, going into the 4th winter with a basic Masterlock hitch & trailer lock set, they always look crummy but it's just surface rust and they work fine. I make sure the rubber caps are turned down and closed and so far the locking mechanisms work fine thanks to the dry lube keeping the ice at bay.
