locking water tank cap

Does anyone make a replacement locking cap for the water tank?
Call me paronoid, but it would be relativly easy for someone to contaminate the water in the tank. Id like to be able to prevent someone up to no good from putting something in my water tank. Chances are we would use the water mostly for cleaning or cooking and rarely for drinking...but still would like to make sure its only water in the tank and not anything someone may have added to it.

I've sure been looking forward to a response to this topic. All my truck campers had locked access doors to the freshwater tank and I liked that little bit of security. I'd sure like to figure out a way to protect access to the water supply in my AFrame.

I don't have an A frame so I don't know what the water fill looks like but I've gone the opposite direction and replaced the 751 keyed lock with a 1/4 turn thumb "lock". It's a pain in the rump to always carry my keys with me and if I want to use the outside shower I can't close the door to the water fill anyway.

Holy Crap, it I were that paranoid I'd seek professional help. No I'm not kidding.

Locking water cap

Maybe the reason you haven't seen many responses to this concern is that most of us don't worry about it. I've been camping for over 60 years and have never encountered something like this.

Having a lock on the fresh water cap has never concern me. We stay at places that have water and elec. hook ups, gets way to hot here in Texas not to have the A/C running. Camper parked in back yard so no one can do anything to it anyway.

Hope you find what you are looking for

I sure don't see why someones concern for keeping their water supply uncontaminated is considered to be "paranoid",.......I'm sure there are places in this country where people have never found the need to lock their homes or their autos, well for at least the last 60 years anyway, ......but I'll bet you are so "paranoid" about those two areas of safety that you do!!.........maybe that "professional help" is in order...........

I'm sure there's a way you can fabricate a locking cap. But if you're that worried about it, maybe you shouldn't go camping. That stress might be harder on your health that the possibility of tampered water.

We live in different times. Paranoia of yesterday is the cautious of today, whether it's from something malicious or a prank from a good friend. It's not up to us to decide the OP's reasoning. Instead let's help him out.

I believe you can buy the locking door and recess area from an RV parts supply. If I find a link, I'll post.
