Locking water Cap for a 2015 31W Chateau.

Anyone ever modify the Water Fill Cap so that it can't be tampered with? Any ideas?

The fill cap on the Challenger is behind a door that has a cam lock. I have never seen an actual locking cap for the water fills.

If folks would like, I'll take some pics of mine and post them.

Dave,

That would be great. I believe mine also protrudes, I'll have to check this evening.

DW has me a bit timid about drilling holes and/or cutting holes in the fiberglass framework...at least until the warranty expires.

Here are the pics. The locking box protrudes out from the coach about 1/2 inch and is recessed in about an inch.

As a note, since I fill the fresh water tank through the Anderson system I rarely open this access panel.

Looking at the pictures I now notice something interesting. The warning label is at this fresh water fill location but it is not on the Anderson station where I normally fill the tank.
