Winnebago Adventurer 35U F53 gas tank leak at full

We purchased a Winnebago Adventurer 35U F53 mid June. When we filled the gas tank it would leak bad so we decided to use it and only fill it 3/4 full untill we could repair it. We continued to smell gas at times so I calculated the last trip to return home empty and then removed the tank. The rubber O ring that was placed under the fuel pump was miss aligned and leaking. I replaced the fuel pump and O ring with original Ford parts # F7UZ9H307DC. It listed for $468.85 and I paid $374.50 after tax. I also replaced all vent hoses and clamps along with a new generator hose. I believe that the original owner had this problem. If I can help anyone with this just let me know. I have pictures of the job if needed.

Note: the generator fuel line suction with the new pump needs the 2" rubber hose installed to allow it to be used at factory level. Mine was at 10 7/8".

Test that the fuel pump is not only running but also pumping before reinstalling the tank. I did not and had to do this job 2 times.
