Issues, issues, issues......

Just started it from sitting all winter. Ran for about an hr b4 moving it. It appears I have a fuel leak. As best I can tell it's this contraption straight above the starter. It's cylinder like and wet.... Thoughts?

I zoomed way in....

More to come...

Thanks.....

Not sure what rig you have but if that is the lift pump, there are 3 bolts on top that tend to come loose.
On mine, 04 Vectra, access is through steps in bedroom floor. Mine would leak at startup. Tightened bolts and all is well. They say to be careful and not over tightened.

Probably is your fuel lift pump then.
When you turn on the key, the lift pump starts running. Mine would leak then and stop leaking after about 1 minute.

Mine seems to have a constant very slow drip, at least when runnning. Never would have noticed it in summer....

Turns out it's a fuel transfer pump. Is that the same thing as a lift pump?

I don't think so but you'll need someone with more knowledge than me.

I was just curious. I have it in the shop. I didn't feel like working on it in a snow bank and we're heading south in a week. The part is $450 or so... Plus labor etc...

Lift pump, fuel transfer pump......same thing. It supplies fuel from the tank to your injector pump.


Easy fix.

Just got the MH home back, $1700 dollars later. $1k in labor. I would have done it myself, but we're in the dead of winter and I don't have a shop. Also, they said they could fix the louvered door for the engine. It's held on the hinges by fiberglass. 'Glass snapped from the hinges. Well, they only deal with chassis's. It's a semi trucks fix 'em place.

Picked it up the first time a few days ago. Found out the hard way the main power cord was plugged in. When backing up it ripped out of the basement. No door damage, just the mount for the coach plugin and wires had to be reattached. plug on the cord to the coach was screwed up too. They fixed/replaced everything at no charge. Wished someone told me it was plugged in b4 we left. It was sitting behind a chain link fence. Never crossed my mind. Did a walk around yesterday when I picked it up...... Learned the hard way....

The lesson to be learned is ALWAYS do a circle check including checking under the coach before you use the coach even if you have just stopped to add fuel. You might not find anything but sooner or later you will find an issue and you will be thankful for the couple of minutes you took to check. Good luck with your coach,

I always did a walk around at gas stations or rest areas when we had our 5er. I guess I assumed everything would be in order coming from a shop. Learned that lesson, it's not.

Heading south Sunday. Have the jeep on the dolly... Did a test run towing behind my truck.

Don’t feel badly, I did the same thing in my own driveway, got distracted, started to back away with the shoreline power still connected. Rookie mistake on my part. No damage done, as it unplugged itself, as if to scream at me, “You idiot, I’ll save you this one time”. 🥴

Glad everything seems back in order for you.

Sorry you got a $1,700 bill just to change your lift pump.

And I'm sorry I did not catch this post sooner. Why? Because I would have directed you to bypass your lift pump and install a FASS-TS or AirDog-II-4G pump for a little more money.

For more information you should ready about the other benefits of change your fuel delivery to a positive flow:

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f123/cum...mp-458337.html

This aftermarket pumps are in the $700 range for a kit and with extra parts you have about $800 total. Labor is 6-8 hours to install.

And the primary reason to do this upgrade is to ensure your CAPS or HPFR injection system has a positive fuel supply to prevent premature injection pump and ECM failures that could cost you over $6000 - $9000.

I wonder how common this is? When I picked up my trailer new it was still connected to power. They had everything else ready to go.

Sounds like it's more common the expected. Did u figure out it needed to be unplugged, or the dealer,? When I picked it up the 2nd time the cord was coiled nicely in the storage compartment.
