    The Trauma was certainly 'stolen to order' the Avtex was just a bonus. I hope the police persue this case and not just write it off with a crime number.

    Just spare a thought for the victims...

    This type of crime is very TRUMAtic....

    The police say they are investigating with all the resources
    they AV. TEX a lot of work to catch this type of criminal, signalled a police spokesman.

    Police also said, they did have a lead on the TRUMA, but it had now gone cold.
    Apparently there was also a lead on the Avtex but sadly it went missing with the TV.

    :Sad:
    After looking at tv's and satellites for the past year, we finally decided to go for an Avtex tv and the portable Avtex satellite to go with it.
    So we were horrified to read this post above, both items will be taken indoors when the mh is parked behind the house. But these things are always a worry when you're away on a site and go out for the day. Obviously valuable items would be hidden away out of sight, but it still makes you worry:Sad:

    Agree with Bigfoot, hope the police find the culprits, but sometimes they tend to let thefts of this type slip away, as it's too much hard work for them. Sadly the tv and the heating unit will be long gone by now:Angry:

    Maybe we should get a Rottweiler:Angry:

    The police could find the suspected theives with a room ful of avtex TVs and motorhome heaters and no prosecution will take place, no proof they are stolen simples:Doh:
    So get busy with your UV pens and or smart water security systems.
    The police wont go looking for your items but when they stumble across them as they very often do, they do check for marked items to secure a conviction:thumb:
    A simple label on the motor home stating all items and equipment are security marked will move the crims on to vans that don't have the stickers:Cool:
