Ar 15. Back during Ike here in Houston they would role up with a lawnmower running and take the generator during the night

Put a freaking large U bolts and drill out couple holes on the deck and lock it down and when some sucker try to steal it they will never take it out without makeing noise.

I have done that before it took them alot of effort and gave them a birdshot in the arse.



The answer will be based on NEC ( National Electrical code ) or CEC ( Cananda Electrical code ) or ECF ( Electrique Code France )
