Water Intake Cover

I'm working on my 1982 Burro. The cover on my water intake is broken and I'm looking for a replacement. I've looked on line and can't find one with the search words I'm using. Can you help? I also need to know - if I remove the old one, how complex will it be to install a replacement? Duct tape has been my go-to solution this summer.....

Is that a not-pressure water fill?

Disregard: I blew up the picture and saw that it was non-pressure.


This is what came on my Little Joe. I Replaced it with this, as I wanted a lockable fill point. You do have to cut out a rectangular hole,but it's not difficult if you measure carefully.

By the way, I tried to find your manufacturer, D & G Associates, Inc., online, but nada.

The lockable door is readily available online or any RV parts outlet locally; about $15-$18.

Thank you all! They all seem to be possible solutions. I'll check out the round one for measurements then chose the best option and get busy :-)

I switched to the one shown below and it works very well with the tapered nozzle on the common plastic Jerry can sold at Walmart.

We had the type with the door. Having to use a key every time we filled the tank got old fast. Made a gravity fill fit with a home made plate. You could do the same to make a different brand work. Raz
