Locking gas cap

We are taking our 2020 Alante 26x out for a week for shake down next week. We have had two Lance trailers prior to this, so are looking forward to the difference. The dealer suggested a locking gas cap to help protect the 80gal of gas, especially while in storage. Can't find a locking gas cap!
Does anyone have a part number for a cap that works?

Most newer vehicles have anti-siphon devices that allow gas to flow into the tank, but won't allow a siphon hose to be inserted to the tank. Follow the filler hose from the gas cap to the tank, it's probably pretty long which also would/deter someone from trying to siphon your gas. Get some rubber hose from the parts store and try and insert the hose to see if you have a anti-siphon device.

Saw a news clip about vehicles having the gas removed from the tank while owners were at church. Method was to drill a hole in the gas tank and catch what they can, then move on to the next.
