In particular the filling hose, and the vent hose could easily be of this simplier kind.

Otherwise I would agree that the return hose are suspect #1.

BTW: how did it go with the water tank?
(another disadvantage with one thread for all issues ...)

I'll keep updating the thread here as I work through each issue. Easier than working multiple threads. So no worries.

I have a guy looking at the water tank issue today. I'll troubleshoot the diesel thing next weekend when we're down there.
