I have had issues with CA pumps and motorcycles. I pull the rubber thing back and hold it while filling.
For the MH I know you must push it straight in firmly and then tip it down to lock it into the filler opening. Not all areas of CA have this abomination. There's a accessory you can buy to help. A U shaped thing that holds the accordian cover back so you can fill easier. Even in AZ I have fill at less than max to be successful.
