Security and weathering

I'm just starting my business and moving from WSM 22" to a Lang, somewhere from 60-84" model deluxe with chargrill.

My concerns are how can I secure my trailer with the smoker while on site (chock blocks on the wheels)? How can I protect the unit from theft while parked at home? I have never done much trailer based driving, are these units going to be an issue when driving to events for me (eg backing in, turning etc..)

Since I live in OH and a garage at my home won't be much of an option, is this unit something I could store in a typical u-store-it facility? Or is leaving it outdoors an option and letting nature take it's course?

How are folks who travel to sites getting the water to clean with, are you taking a portable water source and small pressure washer to provide just enough to clean with or crating a new fire once back home just to clean up?

I keep mine in a garage, I use a hitch lock when it is not there and I have never heard anything good about the grill on the front of one I would skip getting the chargriller on it, I do love the warmer though and get the direct heat optopn

I know a guy with a restaurant near me.  He uses a 108 to cook for the restaurant and has an 84D w/ grill for catering and competitions.  He keeps it outside, in a public parking lot.  They make strong locks to prevent theft.  I'd suggest insuring it if you're really worried about theft.  If someone wants it that bad, they'll take it.

He likes the grill.  He can it really hot for grilling oysters on it.  While it may not work as well for other grilling purposes, it certainly looks good for presentation, which it what you want when doing on-site catering.

I would cover it  with a tarp if you're going to leave outside, for not only rust issues but to obscure it some.
I take my 36 to a camp which has a gravity fed water supply (no real pressure.) It does have power so I put a 1/3 hp sump pump in a 5gal bucket with a short hose/nozzle, it will provide enough psi to do a decent field clean untill the next time I use it at home.
