2005 W-24 rear fill Dolphins

This may cover more than this model yrs and models. Ok I discovered this a bit ago while being underneath the motorhome and was surprised I hadnít seen it before. This is the main fill rubber hose and the vent hose that runs thru the frame a short distance and into the tank. It needs to be chaff protected so not to wear thru. I plan on attaching a pc of small rubber tubing over the frame to protect the hoses. Iím not sure if the metal tube pulled out or was adjusted after the undercoating but plan on checking that further. Click image for larger version

It does look like the metal tube has moved from its original position. The Dolphins had problems from the factory with the hoses being install incorrectly and caused very slow filling of the gas tank. The problem was gas would pool in the small (vent) hose and cause the gas station fill nozzle to constantly shut off because the tank couldn't vent.
You mentioned concern with chaffing of the hose, not sure there is much movement of the frame or the hose to cause any chaffing. Adding a cut rubber hose, top & bottom, may cause more chaffing than just leaving it alone. Once you get under there and really get a good look you will be able to determine if you have any chaffing now. The good news is; you don't have to remove a million parts to get to the hoses.

Have fun!

Steve

Oh yeah figured that one out and reworked that vent hose some yrs ago! I laid under there one day looking up at that fill hose thinking what the hell is going on here and noticed the issue.
