Anything would require a mod and this looks like it would be a clean installation.


It had never occurred to me to lock the water cap, but we each have our own concerns and level of comfort. But my friends tell me I am too nonchalant about things. So go for it if you feel it is needed.

I actually had someone pour about a quart of oil based paint into my fresh water tank. This happened at a storage facility. I don't know who, when or why. I don't typically use my fresh water tank. The underside of the trailer was open so I noticed it through the translucent water tank while I was inspecting "stuff" under my trailer. Fortunately I had water in the tank so the paint coagulated in the water. I dropped the tank and managed to get it all out through the fill neck. I move to another storage site with better security and used the trailer for a few years more. My new trailer has all hook-ups behind a locked door. Just to say, it can happen. I really don't think about it much.

Locking fresh water inlet

I am one of those that feels a locking cover on the fresh water fill on a camper is a good thing. We are rather surprised that our new A frame does not have one. Not surprising is of course that the manufacturer saves money on this. I had just watched several you tube videos on how to sanitize your fresh water tank, and not one of the campers in any of the demos, did not have a locking cap on the fresh water tank fill. I too am looking for an easy way to put that on our new A frame. I have heard too many stories of people having stuff put in the gas tank of their cars, prior to locking lids. What is wrong with a ounce of prevention. Color me crazy too if you like.
