    2015 Sweetwater Model 2286 gas opening doesn't allow gas nozzle to go in?

    We just purchased a 2015 Sweetwater Model 2286. Filled it at a gas station on the way to the lake (discovering the problem) and then again at another location on the lake... confirming it was the boat, not the stations issue since the 2nd locations nozzle wouldn't fit either.

    It only goes in a little way  -- not far enough and you still have to actually HOLD it there and cannot just put it in, set it and let it fill. 

    This forces the filler to squat (when on the lake/dock filling) and hold the gas filler and handle the entire time. And since you can't fill it quickly, it's a ridiculous amount of time to try to hold it.

    Is this normal? The dealer is telling us they changed it in 2014 (per "government" requirements) so they cannot do anything about it.... BUT, our new car doesn't do this. Also, someone with a 2014 Aqua Patio doesn't have this issue either.

    Anyone else out there with this problem - or Godfrey.... can it be fixed? I can guarantee we won't be buying another if it remains like this and other than this, so far we really like the boat. 

    Thanks!

      Is that a Triple tube or have Boomer or did they increase tank size. That's one neg on my unit having only 21 gal tank, but I do like the 27" tubes. I have a 2015 240DF and the marine nozzle went in without a problem and filled it with auto shut off - then top it.
