Travco 270 Water Tank Cap

Hello.
Does anyone have a spare cap for their water tank that they would sell? I have one missing.
The motor home I bought for a spare does not have this set up.
Thanks.

Scary SETUP... That would be one of the first items I would change... After sanitizing my system I would hate to have
some one gaining easy access to my "fresh" water tank. I changed my "fresh" water access opening immediately!
Got a "lockable" unit, not with a door-key type but one I can seal with various colored ties to control access.
One would have to destroy the tie by cutting it to gain access. Not a stopper but any visible sign of tampering would
alert me to "something amiss" and I would immediately examine and be suspect of my water supply...
Just my $.02 and BTW my system is "protected",,, security wise to my satisfaction....I wanna' know...
My "city" water access is behind a key locked door...
How safe is your water system.?..
FWIW/HTH
BBB
PS; Uploaded 3 pics from a different system. No tie has been applied for security
to the "fresh" water system..Pics taken as soon as finished.
ALL pieces are available from a RV retail store
as in OTC..There is nothing special about these items.

In the interest of Forum members and finishing this post on drinking water security.. "from my point of view"..
I went to my camper/Travco this morning in da' pouring rain and took a few more pictures to complete my post.
Here is the "fresh" water fill with the "security" tie... If in any way damaged or removed, I will "know"..
As I am able to swap out tie colors at any time, I can keep a potential "prankster' and I'll leave it at that...off his game.
Here is a pic of my tie stash... In no way do I want my water compromised... for any reason...

Will take your advice! The cap is a bargman brand and was used on a lot of vintage campers. These were apparently added some time along with some other rather crude work that was performed with the water tanks. Pulled the tanks yesterday to access the floor as there is a bit rot....!!! Less than one sheet of plywood so it could be worse. Again, thanks for the advice and I will install lockable access.

continuing on the "fresh" water saga...
thumbnail_drink_040.jpg

This was on my '76 Mahal.. It is a totally locking FRESH water protection system. I also have a newer cap that has a much wider wider brim and sits a little lower covering the mounting screws. It is similar to a Ford Maverick gas fill that was located behind the license plate..
This gives the best feature that I know of and is a do-able project... If anyone wants the number of the extra wide cap that comes obviously with keys and is planning on protecting their "FRESH" water system this way., I will hunt it down and post it...FWIW/HTH

Sorry for the erratic posting. I have stuff scattered thru the HDD
and sometimes cant find what I want. Here is the "inside" of
my "secured" fresh water inlet. BTW this was photo'd 16 years ago...
