Anyone know where to get a locking Gas cap for a 2011 Bounder?

This looks like it fits lots of Fords, maybe it'll fit your Bounder (assuming it's on the Ford chassis, which you diodn't specify.)

Probably NAPA auto parts.

Do NOT buy a locking gas cap!!! Let 'em try to siphon gas out of your tank... unless they brought a really loooooong hose it's not going to happen. Thieves want to do things fast for fear of being caught so if they try to siphon and can't they will probably leave. If they do succeed they will usually only take five gallons but if you have a lock there is a good chance they will simply puncture the tank... get what they can and leave the rest draining on the ground (not good under a motorhome).

ps I much rather lose five gallons of gas than try to repair a hole in the tank!

Hmmm. Interesting point. I just put a locking gas cap on mine but now I'm having second thoughts.

As far as which cap to get... I just went to Orielly Autoparts, told them what rig I have and they gave me a cap for it. I don't have a bounder though.

Best thing is to buy a small solar powered motion activated light and mount it on the roof above the gas receptacle.Just point it down and you are good to go.Not very costly and mounts with either velcro or 2 way tape so as not to damage the roof.When it comes on they will scatter.

They will tear up your tank to show you if locked, let them try to get it if they can.

I put a locking cap in my truck. If they make that much noise, I have something that will make a louder noise.

Look under your rig at the gas tank filler line. My Workhorse the line is rubber. If they find a locking cap, all they have to do is look underneath and just cut the filler line. Easier to buy more gas than replace the filler line.

Perhaps a dummy pipe to the black tank?
