Fueling issue

I have a 1999 Winnebago Adventurer. When I fill up with gas, for most pumps, the gas splashes back up on the nozzle and cuts the flow of gas off (as if it's full). This is very frustrating, as I have to keep moving to a different pump until I find one that doesn't cut off, and sometimes I have to go to a different gas station. Any suggestions?

Some times on older MHs the gas filler tube that runs from the filler cap to the tank either kinks where the arch is because it isn't supported or just plain age. I've heard but not personally seen that some hoses break down inside and start tp get plugged up. It also could be a vent issue where the vent tube is collapsed, kinked or plugged with gunk or algae. Good luck.

Try holding the nozzle in a different position, even upside down! I had a vehicle that was bad about that and I had to hold it upside down!

I had a Older Motor Home like that. I had to either turn the nozzle upside down or else put it on the slowest fuel setting. It would take a long time to fill the tank 75 gal almost 30 minutes. I found out later it was the way the factory ran the filler tube.

I had a gasser like that back in the '90's . The filler, right where you put the gas nozzle in, had slipped down a little and was causing the pump to trip off.

Try looking under the coach at the filler tube and see it looks like it is still in the original position. Some manufactures back then just used flat strap to hold the hose and filler in place and they move around. While you're looking, check the vent line as well. It shouldn't have any kinks or sharp bends.

We have this problem on certain pumps. Our solution was to put on the nozzle a roll of electrical tape. It works. You may need to look for one that is large enough
