Locking Gas Cap

I own a 2013 Allegro Open Road 34TGA on a Ford F53 V10 Chassis. I am looking to buy a locking gas cap. I have checked Pep Boys, Autozone, but not having any luck. I figured my next search will be the Ford Dealer.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Stant makes several models that should fit. (I have one)

Best of luck.

I picked up two at Walmart, which fit my diesel. They were less than 15 each. The Stant number was published in the last Tiffin magazine, and to my surprise was just a standard number that Walmart carried on their shelves.

I bought a STANT 10510 for my Ford. Hint, have to remove the key before putting it on the filler to get it to lock. $12 on Amazon

I figure if someone wants my fuel they can either siphon it, or they can stick an ice pick or screwdriver in the tank. I figure the first method is much painless.

And I suppose you leave your driver's door unlocked and the key in the ignition. Wouldn't want someone to break a window and mess up the wiring to hot wire it, now would we.

That would make no sense, as I would then not have a vehicle to drive. If however someone steals my fuel, I can get more and go about my business. Under your plan you first need to find a new fuel tank, get it installed and then refilled. I just think my way is easier, cheaper and way less hassle.

If you forget about the theft of fuel, just keeping some kid from putting something into it is worth the $30 bucks.

Just make it a little more difficult, so they move on to the next. It's so cheap it's a no brainer, IMHO.

Totally agree. Situational awareness, park in safe looking places with people around. The ice pick will do major damage and the fuel tank is easily accessible on most vehicles.
Happy Trails, and hope regardless of your decision this is a non-issue.

Exactly, someone putting something in is far worse than taking it out.

Interesting, both of my much less expensive gas motorhomes came with locking doors over the filler caps. The 2012 Phaeton not so much. Haven't worried about it much either.

OTOH someone stole the gas cap off my Jeep, parked next to the coach in an Elks lot in Stanford FL (no fuel, just eh cap). The Jeep now has a locking gas cap, it was a real annoyance to replace it at the time. Don't want to drive around without one as the environmental control system with start throwing codes.
