Just wrap a rag around the nozzle to plug up clearance between nozzle and BB fill pipe. When it shuts off, the rag stops the fuel from burping out. Throw the rag away.

Ditto. I use those Scott brand Blue Shop towels that come on a roll.

"Gas Off" from Briggs and Stratton does really work to get rid of fuel smells. I keep a little spray bottle next to the driver seat if I need it. Also I use the truck lane but open both caps and fill from one. If it does burp it seems to go on the other side for me. Your milage may vary.
Gas Off

I've built a couple of joey beds (slide out shelves) for the coach. The first ones were wood, now I've graduated to aluminium. They aren't hard to make, just some L metal and the 100%-150% heavy duty drawer slides. The slides you can get at Lowes, then just remember to leave some space under the slide for screw heads and such. I still need to rebuild my toolbox slide as I cut the tolerances to close and it drags on the floor some.

Bruce. How about some pictures of the home made slide beds. I might try that.

Bruce,start a new threadon the joey beds,and post some pics too!

And,if you open the opposite fuel door and take the cap off while fillng with fuel,make sure you close the fuel door.
I left one open once on a very windy day and when the fuel came spewing out the wind blew it all over a trucker next to me,he came around the bus looking for an old man and there i was,50 yo and 250lbs.
He changed his mind about the asskicking the "old" man was going to get.

Carl and Donna , I'm new member lurking and learning about the buses and full time trials and tribulations. Noticed you made reference to 2 GSD in your signature. We also have 2 GSD and I'm concerned about campgrounds and people's reactions to the power and dominance they project. They are used to being on a farm with lots of space to run and beef cattle to look after. They will I'm sure adapt to whatever situation but I do have concern about the patrons of these campgrounds being fearful of them.
Do you travel with yours? How have they adjusted to bus life? Any suggestions or insight is appreciated.
Craig
