Scott:
In your post you say "First I did not remove the other cap so air had no where to go." I don't believe you should need to remove the 2nd fuel cap. I beleve there should be a "vent tube" which allows air to escape when it is displaced with fuel. If this vent tube is clogged for some reason or was bent during installation, this would cause a buildup of air inside the tank while refueling.

Thanks for that information. I wasn't aware. I will have Newmar look at it when I'm there.

Actually I had to pull my sewer hose from the snow and ice before departing on this last trip. Did not realize that a small hole had resulted in between ribs so it was undetectable.

Undetectable that is, until I dumped a full black tank and had a little tiny fountain of sewage sprouting up a few inches from the this hole. This didn't show when the gray was draining as it never filled the pipe and the hole happened to be on top.

I was at a very nice place called The Great Outdoors in Titusville when I discovered this. Fortunately no one saw my special fountain and I was able to clean up w/o embarrassment. I am happy to say that is the only sewer incident for me in 4 years of RVing.

Now I could really tell you some stories about what I've seen at my campground.

Welcome to the club, brother.

In my case it was a pin hole leak, with stream so fine I didn't see it.

However, I found it real quick when I felt my leg getting wet.

Used to work in a refinery lab. Use a good laundry detergent like Tide and very warm water, double rinse, wash again. Let sit outside in the warm sun for further odor reduction. You can also soak them in a a can of tomato juice for a few hours then wash. Or wear them and pretend you work in the oilfields.

I think I have the best idea yet. Get some Tide, Simple Green, Surf and a little WD 40 (to change the oder) and throw that combination, along with Dirk's hat, in a nice large washer.
Hit the start button and leave the area.
With any luck we can completely blow up the dirty cloths, so they need never to be washed again. BUT, we have also had a major improvement to the enviroment and everyone's moral and destroyed Dirk's d-m HAT
OH WHAT A GREAT DAY IT WILL BE!

Update, washed the coat 5 times w/all the aforementioned suggestions in use. Still an odor but, it is slowly going away.

I can't hang it outside as I am in friggin' Buffalo. So today I'll wear it and roll around in the snow, make some diesel snow angels and then let it dry in front of the fire.

I hope I can get the strong smell out. I just got this jacket broke in nicely. Yes I know those of you in the South don't understand why a well broken in Carhartt w/arctic lining is important but, it is.

Almost as important as AGM batteries for your electric socks.

Dear Lord, now he's gonna blow his house up.... dryin' a diesel fueled coat by hanging it in front of..... FIRE?

Dirk and I didn't need any such Carhart coat yesterday although it was a windy enough we had to hold on to those little umbrellas in our drinks.

Don't feel bad Scott, last year I ruined a pair of jeans as I did the "diesel splash back dance" myself... I quickly got in the rig,got them off and left them in the Flying J dumpster.... Haven't smelled them since!

...............and I had to wash my Bermuda shorts as I spilled my drink on them trying to save the little umbrella from flying away in the breeze.

However, I'm well aware of insulated coats, insulated pants, insulated boots, Gore-Tex apparel, etc., as I have spent enough time in snow country.
