C.T.Johnson (RHC34) Hitch Coupler Lock Set

This one works well. I like the fact that it locks and the peace of mind that its more secure than just the trailer latch alone.I found it on Amazon. I think you have to buy the set though.
Hope this helps.

Re: Dang those Castaic Lake Lifeguards and Sheriff boat Deputy's are on the top of there game!

We would all agree that pavement between the check in and the parking lot needs some serious attention. People fly through there and their trailer suspension takes quite a beating.
I just take it slow but even then it's pretty rough.

I use mono so the night before I go out I put my hook on a nail on my garage and walk across the street and rip on the line a few times and reel it back a little loose. Also I let the line unwind a little before each cast.
