Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

Yeah, what am I missing?
The fob would work from a hotel room to the car parked out in the parking lot but had to be left in the car if it was on a trailer because in the tow vehicle was too far away?

Just trying to understand how those work.

Trust me, I HAVE slept in the trailer at times.
I usually have the trailer arranged so that I can have a very narrow palette along one side, with a pillow at the front of the trailer. The .44 is under the pillow.


Oh yes, and another thing. I DO NOT advocate shooting out the thief's tires---------------put 2-3 rounds into the radiator and follow the trail of coolant until the engine overheats and seizes up.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

Multiple layers of security, clubs, pedal locks, chain the hood, alarms (multiples if you can) with very visible blinking LED indicators, alarm and GPS tracking with their own power supply, pretty easy to crawl under the front end and cut a battery cable), park in the best spot you can find, and most important, good insurance. If you have a truck/trailer, remove relays from under the hood, multiple locks on the trailer to truck, chains through the trailer wheels into the frame, and again, good insurance. Make things as difficult as possible, perhaps they will go elsewhere. Just make it a pain in the azz for them.

If the alarm is activated or turned on then,

If the key fob is in the car and the car moves the alarm system is happy and quiet.

If the key fob is not in the car and the car moves then the alarm is not happy and notifies the owner that the car is on an unauthorized journey.

Gotcha

What about the difference in the distance from the hotel room to the car in the parking lot vs the distance of the car to the tow vehicle?

BTW, I'd like to check into one, who sells them and what are they called?

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

I am concerned an amateur thief might get upset, they can do a lot of damage in a short period of time. IF your on a cruise with a group the only thing to do is take turns as watch outs. Otherwise a locked and alarmed trailer with a bed inside.

At our shows, we always have members that watch the show field all night.

I'm sure the other shows do the same.

How about a snoring recording and a duffle bag in the back seat.

I could be wrong, but I think what he's getting at is 'movement' in the parking lot the car isn't moving... while in the trailer going down the road it is moving.

Unless, of course, you're fast asleep on the back seat of the car.

Re: Overnighting at hotel or motel with your classic

Do these type of stickers on the window have much deterrent effect?

I don't think I would want the thieves to know there's a tracker installed. They could find it and ditch it.

I agree, I wouldn't want them to know about it.
