I had a similar issue. I had to take it to the dealer for other warranty work so I had them fix that too. They said that the hose that was not supported well enough. The support in the middle of the hose was making a double droop and that it was acting like a pee trap. I still haven't been able to confirm that it was fixed but that was what they said.

Others have said that the hose was too long and they removed the bolts to the fill port and shortened the hose and reinstalled.

Best of luck.

Many times this problem is caused by the vent line being too low. It must go up in order to prevent water from filling the vent line.

Exactly.

I have a pipe that I blow into pressed up against the vent outlet. That pushes the water in the vent line back into the tank then you can feel / hear the trapped air rush out.

Opened it up today both the fill Hose and the vent line were laying all the way to the bottom on the under belly then had to go up to get to the tank tied them up to the bottom of the floor now it works as it should

Up until now, since I have the belly cover off, I use a hose to blow air into the vent hole next to the fill neck when filling the tank. It usually clears the water out of vent hose and allows the tank to completely fill.
