There's a hoop in the sewer tube for a padlock. I wouldn't buy a big heavy one, the tube is plastic and the hoop isn't heavy-duty. I have a tiny brass lock for the tow bar for my Scamp, that would work and slow someone down. It wouldn't be hard to bust open the tube door however.

Yes, I was following my son one time and his got loose with about two feet hanging out before I could pass him and get him to pull over.

And I thought those new ones were going to be such an improvement! Maybe we have to make a Velcro attachment for it.

A cotter pin would work well for just keeping it closed. AND, it could be added to your leaving checklist to make certain you don't run into the some problem as Karen's son.

The sewer hose tube cover is pretty cheesy, and easily broken. Several forum members have either replaced the tube or retrofitted it with a screw on cap with a retaining chain. I haven't bothered, but the latch on mine is still good.

Most Escapes have screw-on caps and I would have thought they changed to this because it is better.

Good idea, Pat. We can use an S-clip.

Mines only a year old, no screw on cap. When did they change to screw on?

It is the older ones that are screw-on.
