Question I can't lock the 'Water Tank Fill door'

Ok so my trailer was my grandparents and I cant ever remember the Water tank fill door/funnel staying closed. Was there a different key for this door than the ones for the storage compartments? Is there a different way to keep this door closed other than the Grey tape system that I can remember from my childhood? ( I still use this system today)

The trailer is a 1972 31 foot Sov. international Thanks , Mike

I cleaned out the house and did not come across any key that looked like that. There is still a "junk" drawer in the 71 but I dont recall seeing any key that looked like that. I will keep looking.

Has any one had to change that lock? Was it difficult?

Thanks for the reply, I dont want to Rally looking like a "hillbilly"

My airstream dealer had a drawer full of them and just gave me one. I would also think any lock shop should be able to make you one.

The lock on my fresh water fill was ruined by a dealership (long story, for compensation they practically gave me a new refridgerator for free). Is there a way to replace these?
