I filled the tank with fuel the other day and when we traveled for a distance we stopped and we noticed an odor of diesel fuel when we got out of the coach. It was dripping from under the front of the coach so I put the generator slide out and noticed fuel on the frame near the fuel tank. I crawled inside and discovered that the overflow hose was dry and cracked and was leaking fuel. I went to NAPA and purchased new hose and installed on both sides (we have a mid door so we can fuel on both sides). I would suggest that you check your hose or hoses to see if they might be showing any sign of cracking and if so change them.

Ditto the symptom. We too, noticed it when stopping with a full tank. It starts coming in the air vents. It started just two trips ago. I noticed the fuel on the frame and cap, but couldn't find any leak at the hose, or the underside of the fiberglass bulkhead that holds the filler. However, the fuel seemed to be coming back up around the fuel cap. I'm going to get a new one tomorrow (found spec on earlier thread). If that doesn't work, I'll re-investigate that vent hose. Thanks alpine4us!
