Catch a rattle snake and keep it in the battery compartment. That should take care of your problem. And yes I am serious.

They must have changed the locks about 1977-78. Our 75 Argosy had a lock on it too but our 79 dosen't. I am sure they did that for fire and emerg. sitituations.

You might be able to drill 2 holes in such a way that you can loop a padlock through the holes, and don't even need a latch.

The third option would be to modify the current lid catch to accept a locking device, as is used on compartment doors.
When i picked up (finally) my new AS from the dealer i just had him drill two holes in the battery box large lip on box(sides) and cover and am just using two padlocks to secure it, as mentioned above (not using a latch).
One other lock on propane tanks (they drilled padlock hole through twist down lever)and last one through trailer hitch ball lever, all keyed the same.
Last theft prevention - removing fuse from electric jack wiring to prevent jack operation. Thats it
