Re: i can't get fuel into the gas tank on my 1986 ford e350 jamboree 26ft. rv? by BUBBA THE BUS TECH
Post New Message 1st the fill problem, You didn't say if this is a new problem. If its the first time you are filling it since you bought it. This is a common issue with this vintage unit. I had to resort to a funnell and hose for one I owned back in the day.

If this is a new problem on a unit you have owned for a while replace the two hoses between the filler neck to the tank. One is a vent line and one is a fill hose. The vent lines tend to Kink and deteriorate inside so they block the vent action. The fill hose will do the same but it is less common.

2 nd Vapour lock is more common on old units due to the modern gas being crap, but I don't think thats your problem. If I remember correctly your Carboretor is prone to sunk floats causing flooding, early signs make it hard to keep running on a slope. It may need a tear down and re-build.

Good Luck
