Do you feel it? That slight chill in the air that is the signal for sweater weather, hot cocoa, reading by the fire and snow? While this time of year is wonderful for many reasons, it’s also the end of camping season and time to store your 5th wheel trailer (unless you’re a snowbird flying south for the winter).

In preparation for this – Torklift Central has many storage and security products on sale to give you peace of mind when you store your trailer, and to make it as easy and simple as possible. What are these four products you ask? None other than the Fortress GasLock propane lock, Fortress PowerLock for your shore power cord, HiddenPower under-vehicle battery mount and PowerArmor battery box!


Fortress GasLock: LP Tank Lock

The Fortress GasLock installed with two propane tanks

Even though you’d like to have your trailer be safe at all times while in storage, it unfortunately isn’t always the case. Not only can a thief steal your tanks and the gas inside that you paid for, but could cause hundreds of dollars in damage trying to remove the tanks and cutting the lines. The Fortress GasLock is designed to securely lock your propane tanks that are mounted to a trailer, towable or RV. It's currently the only lock available specifically designed for LP tanks in the industry.


Features of the Fortress GasLock include:

  • Avoid typical propane tank theft repairs exceeding $500
  • Allows tanks to be quickly locked when mounted to trailers, towables and RVs
  • Does not interfere with LP tank valves and can be filled while locked
  • No tools, no modifications, installs in seconds
  • Affordable investment
  • Designed for dual tanks
  • High impact powder coated military grade aluminum
  • Fits available for all applications
  • Only lock available for propane tanks in the industry


Fortress PowerLock
Your shore power cord is one of the main life lines to your trailer! The Fortress PowerLock is designed to cover your shore power cord access door to protect your RV power cords from being cut and stolen. It’s currently the only lock available specifically designed for shore power cords in the industry. Not only can a thief steal the copper in your cord, but could also cause hundreds of dollars in damage trying to pull and cut the cord out.


Features of the Fortress PowerLock include:

The Fortress PowerLock installed

  • Lock covers shore power cord access door to protect RV power cords from being cut and stolen
  • Prevents theft associated with opening access door and removing power cords
  • Easy installation
  • Lock and keys included
  • Available in black or white high impact powder coat aircraft grade aluminum


HiddenPower: Under Vehicle Battery Mount

Another part of storage to consider is your extra RV batteries. Where do you store them? Certainly, not in the garage for the entire winter – potentially damaging your flooring and increasing the chances your battery will suffer from the effects of sulfation. That’s where the HiddenPower comes in. It allows you to have extra battery power for your RV from your truck, and installs underneath your vehicle, bolting directly to the truck frame!


Features of the HiddenPower include:

The HiddenPower is a bolt-on installation and easy to accomplish

  • Add additional batteries under your truck bed that are always charged up
  • Avoid wasting fuel and leaving your truck engine running while using electrical accessories such as lights, stereos, computer, etc.
  • Power your accessories without turning your truck engine on by having them directly wired into the extra battery
  • No-drill frame mounted with quick disconnect feature for battery service
  • Kept constantly charged and RVing-ready by your RV and truck’s charging system
  • Hidden when in use with no loss of ground clearance
  • Works with group 24 to 31 batteries
  • Designed for all types of batteries: lead acid, AGM, sealed, gel cell, etc.


PowerArmor: Locking Battery Box

With the PowerArmor and PowerArmor Solar, leave your batteries safely on your trailer. With three convenient sizes available to fit around your 5th wheel king pin box and other items you bring with you, the locking battery box stores multiple batteries and other valuable items. With it installed, your batteries can last up to four times longer when they are maintained with the PowerArmor Solar. This translates to avoiding the time and money of re-purchasing expensive batteries. The solar panel trickle charges your battery even without direct sunlight, and keeps charged batteries at the optimal level to maintain healthy RV batteries. This locking storage box also comes with a corrosion proof mat to prevent damage from potential battery leaks.


Features of the PowerArmor include:

The PowerArmor is perfect for storing your RV batteries

  • Prevent common and expensive storage/battery theft (lock included)
  • Maintains charge increasing the longevity of the batteries up to 400% to avoid premature battery replacement (solar only)
