Propane equipped Entegras - check filler connection

I went to get the propane filled today for the third time since I bought my Aspire for the LP Aqua Hot. The kind old gent filling the tank said he couldn't get the hose connector to thread on. I went out and looked and he's right. The filler port is having interference issues with the RV body. I guess the previous time filled the guy had a smaller hose. The tank is welded to hangers then bolted on. It appears unless I drop the tank and add spacers to lower the tank the only way is to trim the metal above the hose to allow the connector to properly line up. I would take it for repair but I am on a trip and don't want to detour to an Entegra dealer and wait around. Pretty soon the propane will run out.

Here's a pic....check the clearance on your propane filler if you have one.

Had the same issue the first time we attempted to fill the propane in March. Best solution was to have a dealer use a hole saw to cut a semi-circular notch in the bottom of the panel that is blocking the access. Cost us $42 and several hours of frustration. Sent pictures to Joyce and asked her to have the assembly line check it out (I think they probably install full tanks and never fill them themselves, so they don't know there's a problem).

Maybe, but I'm pretty sure the tanks are filled after installation and in final prep for delivery....don't want a bunch of loaded propane tanks sitting around inside the building while the coach is being constructed.
