Protect Your RV Investments This Winter!

RVDaily OCT

As camping season is coming to a close and you are thinking of going south for the winter or storing your RV, do you have proper security and storage options during the winter? At Torklift, we always believe that it’s better to be prepared than to have to deal with hundreds of dollars in repairs and replacement when spring comes around. Three things to consider when storing your RV are: do I have proper locks for my propane tanks, how protected is my shore power cord and do I have a spare battery that is stored safely throughout the winter?

The Fortress GasLock

Protect Your RV Blog 1We have a great solution to help prevent a worst-case scenario, which includes a thief trying to remove your propane tanks and cutting the lines, costing you upwards of $500 to repair and replace what was taken.

It’s currently the only lock available specifically designed for LP tanks in the industry.

But did you know that your shore power is an integral part of your trailer and is a target of potential thieves?

Not only can a criminal steal the copper in your cord, but could cause hundreds of dollars in damage cutting them out. We have a great solution to help prevent your cord from being cut out and stolen. It’s your shore power cord, one of the main life lines to your trailer and camper!

The PowerArmor
