I don't know of a company that makes an alarm like that but you can use a stanard alarm to sense the trailer being unhooked. most alarms have multiple sensor inputs. Forrest

When trailering, it is important to realize that if they steal your tow rig they get the boat free. I can send you an alarm and all the color codes to your car for an easy install. I can also add a closed loop sensor to the trailer plug to sound if unplugged. A basic system would cost around $70. Let me know if I can help you out.

Speed2Lead,

Andy is correct about the closed loop sensor and pricing for an alarm.

Keep this in mind though......Alarms keep honest people honest. Nothing more. I have been installing these things in my shop by the hundreds for almost 7 years now. I could get around one in 5-10 seconds and I'm no thief. Imagine what someone that knows what they're doing could do?

How many times has an alarm gone off in the Wal Mart parking lot and you paid any attention to it?

Don't waste your money IMO. Buy a large man eating dog, makes more sense.

Forget the alarm.Lock the boat to the trailer,lock the trailer to the hitch,lock the hitch to the truck and install a hidden keyed cut out switch on the power supply from the fuse board to the ignition or fuel system.Use top quality hardened locks and chain and fuggetaboutit.ITS SAFE!

Airpacker is probably the most correct one here. Lock it and disable it!

In the real world a starter kill keypad or stand alone engine kill does not work. Picture this; a thief wants your truck. First, he breaks in causing damage to enter such as a damaged door. Second, he breaks out ignition or column. If you have a starter interupt that is well thought out the system still has not stopped your loss as you still spend hundreds on door and ignition repair. Third, the disgruntled thief, now a sore loser with tools bashes your cluster, stabs your seats, and urinates in your car. He can spend all the time in the world in your car and if he really wants it, he can do a starter kill bypass as there is no pressure for him to leave as he is still undetected in his eyes.

With a siren based system, properly installed, the thief is psychologically in a hurry to leave hence minimizing damages. I realize that alarms sound all the time at WalMart and that no one pays attention. I have installed alarms for over twenty years and have installed over 43,000 alarms in the Tampa Bay area and have found that if the thief cannot find the siren, its wires, alarm or any related parts then the thief cannot stop the noise and will leave. We also set up an engine disable so that the thief cannot drive off.

The key is all installation related. If the thief cannot find anything he will leave. I also sell satellite tracking systems that call you ten seconds after your door opens and report your vehicle location. Great in case of a car-jacking.

Feel free to visit my website at www.buzz-off.com for more info and if you need help feel free to call.

Hey Guyz,Yes if he wants it he will get it,but I`m not going to make it easy nor am I gonna go to a total lock down of everything. All I want to know is that I did everything within reason,so the Insurance Co. won`t ***** till hell freezes over. As for the alarms in parking lots,I think we all look over to the sound cause curiosity always kicks in, Its human nature. andy what kinda of $$$$$$$$$$$$$ am I looking at for a F-250 Crew Cab,no satellite,just a better set up then those run of the mill vipers. And not alot of bells and whistles,just a secured veh. when armed.
