Check to make sure your vent is not blocked. If you are fueling at a truck stop, you may find that the nozzle is almost as large as the fill tube so it can't vent. You may have better luck at a regular gas station that has deisel. Their nozzles are a smaller diameter.

It would help to know what kind of coach you have. Generally speaking, one thing you can check is the fill tube which goes into the tank. In a lot of coaches, the fill tube sags below the tank entry causing backup of fuel when filling which then spits back at you with foam and fuel. You can stop this for the most part by raising the fuel fill line and supporting it.

Susan,
Try filling the tank from the start slowly, diesel foams a lot when you run the
fuel at full output.

X2. It pays to be careful these days!

As others have said, try putting the fuel in slower and see what happens.

If you have filler tubes on both sides of the RV, slightly open the not used filler cap, that will let some air in to help with fueling.

Just be sure your RV is level when you do this, otherwise the fuel will run out the other side! Don't ask me how I know this!
