That kind of attitude in parents goes a long way to explain why we have so much trouble, and so little education, in the public schools these days. Sounds like you might have found at least on judge with some sense.

I'd like to put a "water" sticker over the gas cap and a 'Gasoline Only" sticker over the water tank filler. Then laff, laff, laugh when the idiot puts the stollen "fuel" in his tank.

Hikerdogs;

Where did you get the keyed lock? I tried through my local dealer, was sold a hodge-podge of parts but nothing worked out. I'd like both a locking door and a locking fuel cap...

I purchased my lock for the gas door at Lowes. Just be sure your get a lock cylinder long enough to reach a latch position.

A couple of years ago, my neighbor had his house broken into by a Mother/son combo, he was 90 years old but was sharp enough to get their tag number as they drove by (he was at my house talking to my wife at the mailbox) and they were apprehended 30 miles away. They had been watching him for a while, and knew when he went out for breakfast, unfortunatly for them he was running late that morning. Locks keep only the honest person out!

On the subject of stealing gas. It is becoming a real problem in some areas. My son lives in the country and has had two 5 gal cans of gas stolen out of his garage lately. He set one 5 gal can outside filled with water and only a quart of gasoline laying on top of the water. Sure enough they stole it too. While he hasn't found out who the perp is, he is pretty sure they had a ton of trouble off that can. He is going to resort to a mean dog as a deterrent.

Was this after they stole the first can of gas, so it was a set-up to see if they would come back? Too funny, except living in California, those people would probably come back and get even, since they know where you live and you don't know who they are... would be fun to do but for me, there's too much of my money sitting in my driveway and easy for someone to do a lot of damage in just a few seconds...

Reminds me of the story of the garbage strike in New York many years ago; people would put the garbage in boxes in their car and leave the doors unlocked; of course, it didn't take long for someone to steal those 'packages'...

I don't think he needs the dog.

I'd place "Waste Water" stickers on my fuel tank, and "Fuel Only" stickers on my black water tank.

They had actually stole two 5 gallon cans of gas before he set the trap with a can of water. They know when no one is home obviously. They broke the lock on the garage service door to get in. He thinks it is a bunch of kids that run around the country on mopeds. He knows who they are, but cannot prove anything yet. Next is a camera set up.

Hi. Back to the subject of locking fuel caps. Does anyone know where you can purchase a couple for a Fleetwood diesel filler pipes? Also, does anyone remember an insert you could screw down into the filler pipes to keep a siphon hose from going down into the tank? And, last, but not least, I've found if I "air down" every time, you can hardly fit you arm under the coach, never mind the rest of your body, as to drill a hole in the fuel tank (diesel air bag coaches, of course).

Workmates have found that motion activated web cams works out well for them. Gets the theifs in action logging the event and emails them the results at the office right while it is happening. Catches them red faced!

The local police in our city (about 125,000) has recently asked all the gas stations to institute a pay before you pump rule. So now the whole town is prepay. The police are spending too much time on drive off's. I'm all for it but I suppose all those people will be looking elsewhere for gas.

I need to start learning about web cams.

Especially if equipped with a 40 caliber hollow point lens.
