Re: Security of batteries on rear bumper

Propane tanks are vulnerable too. Apparently popular with drug cookers. And, no, I don't have mine locked up.

Re: Security of batteries on rear bumper

The propane tanks are usually hidden and usually on the frame. Not sure on the 5.0 "cabinet". These can easily be locked with a bicycle cable and padlock. Being in an enclosure hides everything. The cable will easily loop through the handles and one pass around the frame. Being high off the ground it is going to be hard to use a cable cutter. I feel pretty secure with mine.
