Afternarket or OEM Locking Caps for gas and Fresh Water Tanks

Has anyone manage to obtain Locking Caps for the water and gas tanks on the Forester LE or is this an Option from Forest River?

Gas cap - check auto parts store for the year and model of your chassis. Fresh water - good luck. I have been looking for a way to secure the fresh water inlet for years. They have them in Europe, but haven't found one here.

Stant 10508 for the gas cap.
FW tank fill requires replacing the port.

Yes, thank you. I'd been checking Amazon for the water tank cap and found the item below just unsure of the dit.
I'm thinking that perhaps it's worth a try.
My c jasis is an E450 so hadn't considered he local shops.
I will try that and see.

In all of my years, I've never heard of anyone messing with fresh water. Short of a Mad Max/Water World situation, I think it's fine to leave unlocked.

I'm genuinely curious and don't intend to argue. But, do you mind me asking what scenario you're concerned about? And, have you heard of it happening or do you just think it could happen?

Im not sure why it is that you feel the need to question my concerns or needs.

I do not care to explain nor describe my why's or why not as to what Im seeking for my own needs. I have no wish to justify what it is that I'm concerned with.

I can appreciate your opinion from your personal experiences and your point of view.

To each their own, this is mine.

Kindest Regards
