So do I put this on the trailer or not? There's a good argument against and for.

Probably more effective on a trailer that doesnít have it.

If they get past your hitch lock and your puck locks, a sticker will tell them what to look for.

Claymore mine and a trail camera?

I have security cameras on the trailer as well.

If they get pass the puck locks more than likely the vibration will set off the siren.

I was just gonna say send it to me haha. I can't even use dewalt GPS in Canada. No Verizon. Found some others but pretty bummed they don't work in Canada.
I would not put the sticker on the trailer. Just tells them to find it after stealing it.

Re: Need Advice For Small Trailers In Big City's


My thought is they will be looking for GPS if you got a sticker on the door. If no sticker they are clueless to what's coming..

Looks like the ds500 might work in Canada,,, its no ds600 but should do the job.

True but they'd need to get by the motion alarm, security cameras, locks, it's not an easy thing to do without making noise.

Its a start. Waiting for some lights and plugs, back up camera, wiring a lot of stuff. Holding off on mounting my dewalt rack to the wall since I'll be pulling them open for wiring.

Re: Need Advice For Small Trailers In Big City's


So I sent the DeWalt DS600 and the DS610 back. The website worked to sporadically for my acceptance.

Yesterday it didn't work at all! So my confidence level is shot. I'm thinking about going this route.

Greetings from GPS and Track...

Our newest real-time tracker is a fleet waterproof unit. This unit will track in real-time and has a 2-month backup battery. This is perfect for those trying to track and monitor equipment and trailers in real-time.

See our system LIVE! This is a fleet unit I have on my car. Please login and play with it.

www.FLEETandGPS.com
Use login: mike
Use password: 12345

$299 and includes 1-year of unlimited service. We offer an incredible unit for fleet tracking that needs to be waterproof. The fleet waterproof tracking device is ideal for those who need to track trailers and equipment all day. This unit has the unique capability to be wired to the tail lights or any limited power source. This device has a 2 month backup battery. This allows the unit to keep tracking when the trailer or equipment is removed from the power source. For example, when the trailer is being pulled, the GPS tracker will recharge.
track in real time
detailed history
routes
speeds
mileage reports
What is the difference between the trailer tracker with 5-year battery and a fleet waterproof tracking device?

Excellent question! Your limitation isnít service, it is battery life. Think of your cell phone, probably last 1 or 2 days on a single charge. The TTU-720 trailer tracker has a 5-year battery life and updates once per day. In the event of a theft or recovery, it can be placed into aggressive tracking mode. The waterproof fleet tracker will run off the power of trailer tail lights or limited power source.

The waterproof fleet tracking unit has a 7-10 day backup battery. So when itís disconnected from the hauler, it still has power.

If you are concerned about theft and missing equipment, the TTU-720 is a great unit. The waterproof fleet tracker are for those who need to track all day long. It shows every stop/start, routes, speeds, mileage reports, and much more. It has all the functionality of our fleet tracker but this one has long backup battery and will handle weather conditions.

Have an AMAZING day!
Michael & the team.

Yeah been a ruff time getting security on the trailer. Dewalt no worky in Canada. Ordered the fort knox lock and got an email saying he needs 40 bucks more for shipping and will be big fees at the border. So going to cancel that.,, rather get GPS.

I was also looking at the same site for GPS trackers. I thought it was 3 years of service on the gps tracker.
