Locking Gas Cap

I am looking for a locking gas cap for a 2017 Thor Vegas 24.1. Does anyone have a part number or help with this? I have tried Auto zone, Napa Auto, and Oreillys with no help. Thanks

Have you carried your cap into the stores or just calling around?These things are pretty generic.

Im pretty sure I purchased the same locking gas cap that fits the F150 - F350 pickup trucks for my Axis at AutoZone.

You can alway purchase locally, test fit then take back to like Autozone or Walmart. Much easier than returning to Amazon.

Most of these caps and fuel fill hoses come standard already on the chassis temporarily strapped in place...they just build the camper body around them. As stated above, any cap that fits a Ford Light/Medium Duty chassis should fit.

Check with Stant (online...) I got one from them for my Outlaw, and it worked great!

Iíve not checked this out but on another forum there seemed to be some consensus that this works on pretty much all Ford chassisís NAPA # BK 7031723. If you try it let us know if it works!

Gas cap fits perfectly. Good investment! Got at NAPA for $20.13

One question, has anyone tried to siphon gas from one of the RVs (if that is the reason for a locking gas cap)?

I can attest to the fact that, at least for this non-talented thief, there was absolutely no way I could get ANY type of hose, pipe, or other device in the gas tank.

I had some bad gas, and needed to drain the gas tank, and finally had to unhook the gas line from the generator to get the gas to drain..

I had never put much stock into anti-siphon devices, but, the gas line and tank on our VEGAS made a believer of this boy.

Iíve not done the locking cap (mostly just too lazy I think) but Iíd be as much concerned about vandals in our storage place dumping stuff in just for mischief. Small risk I suppose but you never know these days.

For 20 bucks gives me piece of mind.

Many years ago my younger brother came in from NM and spent the summer with us prior to going off to the Army. He started dating a local girl that summer and borrowed my yellow 1969 Opel GT (kind of looked like a mini Corvette). One night we hear the dogs barking like mad so we go out and find two punks pouring something into the gas tank. We yell at them and threaten to "release the dogs" so they run up the road, jump in a POS truck and take off. When we get out to the car we find sugar all around the gas fill site and they stole my non-locking gas cap. Had to flush the system and buy a locking gas cap...nothing but locking gas caps since them.

That's why we put a "locker" on ours...
With 55 gallons of fuel on board: it sure gives some folks of "questionable character"; something to think about!

Iíve heard people say a locking cap isnít really much of a deterrent to a determined creep and suppose thatís true if the creep is specifically targeting ME for some perceived offense. But most of the time my MH is in a storage place surrounded by other machines - some nicer than mine, some not. I suppose your garden variety creep will target the easiest unit for his nefarious deed. So maybe the cap would be effective. Perhaps this thread will give me the incentive I need to push the three or four buttons to order one from amazon. Sometimes my sloth impresses eve me!

You don't have to make your rig "criminal-proof": it only has to be made more secure than the rig parked next to you!

Our locking gas cap had messed up and I had to remove the locking part to get it on securely.
Your part number was spot-on.
Bought one at NAPA, took it home, it fits perfectly!
Thanks Pete'sMH.

Gas Cap

Is the gas cap the same for the F53?

The parts store should be able to figure that out for you.

I had a locking gas cap for my GMC Sierra 2500, tried it on my Thor ACE 29.1 and works just fine: local car-parts jobber, Stant #11511 - Bill K
