If you have two sleds, each one of you bring one of those super thick cable type Kryponite locks. Then park the sleds side to side, one facing forward, one facing backwards. Lock the trailing arms or A-arms of each sled to the other sleds skid somehow. At least now they can't drag the sleds away. That is probably your best defense without indoor, locked storage.So now that we are going to Canada, what is the best way to lock your ride, understanding that we have limited room for locks
I thought it was all a bunch of people crying wolf, then in 2003 we went to Quebec and both our sleds were stolen from the hotel we were staying at. I chalked it up to bad luck, and still went back 2 years ago, no big deal, just take some percautions and yet the Durango get's lifted, trailer, sleds and all.What is up with Canada?? I always thought they were all cool people up there....guess not. i have heard nothing but horror stories about stolen sleds and trucks. W T F ?!!

I hate to brand bash, but funny thing you say that... a guy working in one of the hotels said that a lot of people up there buy Arctic Cat covers for thier Ski-Doo, Polaris, Yamahas becasue no one steals them. Honestly, that is what this local said.Buy an Arctic Cat[/b]
This is the only kind of security I would trust. Something that would wake me up and get me out there.We wired some motion detectors in and around trailer and truck and put the box of the alarm in our condo. It may help, may not, but we were able to sleep with ease anyways.[/b]
The place we stayed a few years before was the best. The owner actually admits that a lot of the inn owners are on the take, and even admits that he has been pressured to work with the theives. But this guy has a long driveway that every single night he plows a 25' high pile of snow in front of the driveway. There is no going in or out, but you are safe, that is for sure.Certain places have more issues and others are not bad. Close to Quebec CIty and Montreal you want to take extra precautions. I know people who have had truck/trailer sleds taken from Quebec Inn, the Arnold in St Georges and the universal in RDL.
cover your VIN on the truck, dealership insiders can get your keycode with it and just drive off. don't leave sleds on trailer lock them in the sled corrall if there is one with other sleds.
Lock sleds together through the A-arm and bumper with good quality cable lock and take your key out of the sled
Aprk outside your room if possible, make sure room faces sled parking area if not
leave nothing of value in truck or trailer
pull fuel pump relays but a good thief carries them so it's not a guarantee
If possible I'd leave my truck in the states, if not make sure the hotel has a good pen with cameras and theres actually a full surround, the Arnold for example has at least 2 ways out of the locked area[/b]
Jesus, I had no idea it was like that up there.The place we stayed a few years before was the best. The owner actually admits that a lot of the inn owners are on the take, and even admits that he has been pressured to work with the theives. But this guy has a long driveway that every single night he plows a 25' high pile of snow in front of the driveway. There is no going in or out, but you are safe, that is for sure.[/b]
