reflection diesel leak

Just bought a 01 Reflection 35 foot on Spartan chasis. Of course I filled it up on the maiden voyage. First stop 80 miles later I parked on a downhill slope. Diesel was pouring out from behind front wheel. Either by the filler spout or top of tank. Any ideas?

yeppers sure was.. I am not that much of a newbie. It appeared it was coming from filler supply line or a vent. My reason for asking is there a vent on top of tank for overflow?? thanks for any ideas

How much fuel was in the tank when you stopped? I found in my 2001, then if I filled up too much, the tank overflow vent which was in the drivers side front would sometimes splash fuel if I was at too much of a forward angle on a very full tank. But most of the time no issues.
