Gas Tank Inlet Poor Design

Anyone notice the poor design to the tank inlets that causes gas to sit in the inlet right at the cap? Anyone change those out with a better angled one that doesn't make it spill onto the side of the RV ?

Yep had the same problem with my boat had to change the angle of the pipe into the tank to get the gas to flow better. Might help if you state the make and model and type of RV you are having a problem with.

Yeah it's an XLR thunderbolt 300x12hp. Don't know if I can change the angle on it or not

MC808, was it because how far forward you had to get the rig... Or are you ready to talk about it yet...

I have a 2015 24FQSL LXR Nitro and I tried to put about 5 gallons back in my fuel station so I could run my fuel pump once in a while and I too had gas pouring all out and down the side of my RV. The inlet hose like you said is too low going to the tank. Only good thing is that I will probley not use my fuel station until such time I'm able to add a generator.

I had trouble filling my 15 29hfs the first time. Tried rotating the nozzle until tank took the gas. Ended up being upside down was the answer. I use my fueling station all the time. I buy Ethanol free down the street and use it for lawnmower and other things around the house

X2. I started pumping with the dispenser upside down as well. Works way better most of the time. Also keeping the spout about halfway down the inlet.
