Gas Fill Shut Off

I recently purchased a 2007 RoadTrek 170. I am having an issue with filling the gas tank. When filling it shuts off every 5 seconds. Even when I fill slowly. It seems worse on a hot day. Think it might be a kinked or cloged vent tube but I cant locate one. Any Ideas what or how to fix. Very frustrating takiing 20 minutes to fill gas tank.

Not unusual, since Roadtrek had to reposition some gas tanks, forward or back, back then to allow clearance for other appliances, most notably, the Onan generators. My 190P had something similar, and it's because the fill pipe is often bent and/or tilted diagonally left or right. If you can rotate the pump handle left or right, you might get better results when filling. Finding your best angle of attack that works will be trial and error.

Your theory may also be possible, but you have to go in through the outside storage compartment (at least in my 2002 190P) to access the fill pipe. There's a removable panel near the rear end of the driver's side external storage compartment (again, in my 2002 190P).

My Grand Cherokee sometimes doesn't like a particular nozzle, and I have to rotate the nozzle 180 degrees when that happens. Looks a little goofy, but it works, and still shuts off when full. Just sayin'.

Oh, and that never happened with my diesel Grand Cherokee, with a similar 'capless' fill tube, but the nozzles are larger, so right away that's a different situation.
