Fresh Water Fill Inlet ?

Does anyone know if you can buy a lockable Fresh Water Fill Inlet that will fit in the same hole as the one that came on my trailer? here is the one that I have.

Thanks

This one should work:

It was about $28.00 when I bought it earlier this year. It takes a little longer to fill the tank but I think it works well.

I installed a locking fresh water fill inlet a few years ago, but couldn't find one that didn't require enlarging the hole a "little".

Check out the following link, I see that now you have a choice depending on the size of the opening in the TT wall:

You would think that with all the thousands of RVs on the road with this same inlet (3-1/2 inch cutout) that there would be such a thing, but I have not been able to find one. I wonder if this might work.

Actually, I did just find this item that is the right size (lockable gravity water dish. second to last item on page) but you have to add your own padlock, and it looks like the plastic part that holds the lock could be easily cut.

It never occurred to me to want to lock the cap, but thinking about it why not just buy a long locking door hasp and mount it over the top. You might still be able to turn the cap, but with the hasp closed you certainly couldn't take the cap off.

This is the one I installed. Had to ream out the [round] existing hole a little to make it square.Click image for larger version
