    2014 SVHO: Gas Tank Pressure Release? (fueling problem)

    Over the weekend my 12hr svho felt like it ran out of gas so I opened the gas cap.
    A tremendous amount of pressure was built up in the gas tank and it ran fine after that.
    How do these tanks relieve pressure as fuel is used? I'm wondering if I have a defective gas cap or breather or something.

    Thank you!
