Non-Uniform Pressures are Broken in 2014

I'm working on a trailer that hauls gravel in SW 2014. To get a more accurate loading than a distributed mass, I opened up SW2013 while 2014 was solving a run to work on figuring out the pressure loads on a very simplified tub model. I got it nailed down, and applied the same load from my dummy tub in 2013 to the trailer in 2014. However, the same exact load in 2014 results in a couple orders of magnitude higher load. My trailer kept blowing up bright red, and I couldn't figure out the reason.

 

So I brought my tub model from 2013 into 2014, and without changing a thing, I ran the study, and it gave me the same problem. Instead of 400,000lb, I end up with 3,000,000lb. I think the problem may be related to this: Tub Pressure Loads.PNG

 

Notice the .046 next to every coefficient in the tooltip. Can anyone help me with this?
