Is a locked gas cap really needed?

Two schools of thought on this one. One is, "If they want it, they'll get it regardless of what you do, so why expose your coach to more damage?" The second is, "Thieves are lazy, so if mine is locked and yours isn't, they'll skip me and go to you instead."

Both have merit, so choose yours. I go with the second and lock my tanks. I wouldn't try to talk anyone into either approach. Your rig, your choice.

I got my locking caps at NAPA too, keyed alike.

This key thing is the larger part of it for me.
I'm beginning to feel like a jail warden when I go to the basket.

Nearly 30 years ago I started re-keying the S&B houses to one key. Sure made life simpler.

Similarly, I'd love to have matching lock types with the same key for related RV'ing accessories like this filler cap, and basement/cap cargo doors (which I know are available) but also just regular padlocks which aren't available (from Tri-Mark).

Any sources or ideas?
