I have discovered that many of your feeds don't follow the RETS Standard on the Date field.

RETS Standard: Date: The latest change date of any contained metadata. This MUST be in the format described in chapter 2 for RETSDATETIME. FORMAT: yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss Example: 2015-07-07T14:58:14

Example of issue: Date: Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:12:23 GMT

Can you change these dates to follow the RETS Standard?

I'm using 1.5 for this feed. I'll see if I'm using 1.7.2 on other feeds with this date format

It does seem that all of our feeds that have this date format are rets version 1.5. The format changes when updating to use 1.7.2.

The specification for the earlier RETS versions were less consistent in their date formats.

I would suggest use either RETS 1.7.2 or 1.8.
