Gas Cap Gone

Help! I left the gas cap in Arizona. We reside and are in Texas so cannot go back after it. I cannot find the correct cap to put onto my 1999 Rexhall Aerbus. It is not a screw on type cap. It has two bayonets. Twist and click. Can anyone help? If you have an Aerbus maybe you could take a peak at your cap to see if it has any identifying numbers or names. It is futile to locate Rexhall in Lancaster, Calif.. Camping Worled has a litany of sequences to get through to their parts department and after two calls am still waiting for their return call.

Thank you,

John in Dickinson

Is this an F-53 chassis? If so, I had the same issue with my National. I resolved it by looking at caps for 1999 Fords. I think I ended up with something that fit an F-350 but it had the same push and twist hooks. One was longer than the other. I found it at a generic autoparts store.

Same here ... left my cap on the pump. The guy at Advance Auto was able to match it after trying a few. They are usally a truck of a few years earlier than your RV.

Whew !!!!! Thank you. I had a feeling it was a Ford because we have a V-10 Triton.
This saves me all kinds of grief. I am going to put a chain on that sucker so it is never left behind again.

I put a stainless fishing leader with clip on mine.

John,
If you bought your fuel on a card you might be able to look on the receipt and call the station and offer to pay to have it shipped to you. That might not cost as much as buying a new one -- Or you might go to a local station often they have a box full of abandon caps and may let you have one. Just a thought

Loren

AquaBlur, I'd try a local parts house and ask for a Ford gas cap. When I bought my used 98 Pace Arrow last fall I wanted a locking gas cap. I had the Ford F53 chassis and that's what it was a Ford gas cap. Sure worth a try.

Heck, while buying a new one, consider getting one that locks. That will at least slow down anyone trying to syphon your fuel in the future and will make you think twice as you will have to unlock it every time you fuel up.

I agree. Mine unlocks with the key in it so you can't leave it behind! MH is on an Ford F53 chassis. Should be available everywhere.

Try this, assuming you have either a digital camera or smart phone.

Take a ruler and laying it under the filler,, Take a picture (or 3)

now go visit your local Auto-Zone or one of their competitors (Discount Auto, Pep Boys, NAPA, Joe's Auto parts).

Perhaps one of them can take a look at the photo and say "Yup, that's a _____" and sure enough it will be.

I lost mine once. Went to a large Kragen auto parts with the Motorhome. They let me take several out to the coach to try for fit. Found the one I needed.

I think what has been learned is: I have a large cork, it is a Ford F-350 and I like the fishing leader line to attach to the cap and lastly, a locking cap with the key on the ignition key ring should prevent accidentally leaving it any where else.
Thank you friends,
John
