I was thinking bolt through the face of the cap.

I drilled a 3/16" hole thru one of the ears on the cap, inserted a 12" piece of 1/8" nylon line with a knot in the end and tied the other end around the pipe....been working for well over two years and haven't lost a cap yet or forgotten to put it back on.

In Tennessee the Highway Patrol will write you a reminder if they catch you traveling on the roads with them off.

Tie a red ribbon on your cap. When you dump, move the ribbon to your steering wheel. When you get into your truck to leave you will see the ribbon on your steering wheel and you can go back and replace your caps and tie the ribbon back to your cap so it will remind you next time.

I don't have a cap problem but this is what I did after I tore the television antenna off a previous camper because I forgot to lower it.

I'm pretty sure it would be a violation of an environmental law of some kind.

It is a DoT regulation (not EPA) prohibiting discharge of hazardous waste on a roadway (even accidentally). The pipe end must be capped to be in compliance.

The open pipe is enough proof for a State Trooper to pull you over.
The fine can be enormous depending on his mood.
