I am new to this RV thingy thing, Even though I have been lurking around here for over a year. I feel that I must post this question, looked all over for an answer but cannot find one. I am 67 years young so please bear with me.
My rig is a 87 Winnebago Custom 25 Ft On Dodge chassis
The winne has an excellent engine trans runs good brakes all checked out
B4 I got this Winn this is what had been done to it.
New carb plus all new electrical to the engine
New Fuel Pump plus filter
New starter looks like new headers also
I have ripped out all the interior lighting @ installed led lighting, what a power saver.
So now to one of my major problems I am trying to overcome is this fuel
tank nightmare (don't forget I am 67 years young)
First off it started with intermittent fuel to the engine over a period of time.2 weeks ago all fuel quit working
I decided to investigate the fuel lines @ tank.
I air compressed the fuel lines into the tank,air was going there.Decided to go for it & drop the main fuel tank, WHAT A JOKE that was .
This is what I had to do, Get under the home undo the 2 main brackets
that is bolted to the main frame using a socket & wrench to hold the bolts 8 in all from slipping around Angry Bolts have now been spot
welded to the two main tank frames that hold the tank in place.
THIS IS AN update this just in case anyone has to take the tank off the
78 Dodge chassis. First undo the two main straps holding the tank in
place, push them on top of tank. Take off the filler hose & breather
pipe OH don't forget to put jack under tank first.You can then pull the
tank towards the outside about 3 inches to give you room to get your
hand behind the tank to get to the bolts.pull the 2 main brackets out
Disconnect the fuel lines & wires.Then lower the tank.
Anyway I looked inside my tank & it was clean, tested the float thing & it only goes to 3/4 full replaced the fuel lines pump is now pumping fuel. I have no idea why I was getting no fuel in the first place. Only thing I am trying to fix is the fuel gauge fault ?? Any idea's would help.
Also My reserve tank is all messed up Question ?? . The tank has been
disconnected & routed to the generator I will be doing away the genny &
going solar using 3 or 4 deep cycle batteries with a inverter. (Is this
a good idea ?) My question is ? how do I connect the reserve tank back,
is there some sort of diagram out there that I can see .
Sorry for the long drawn question but any help would be appreciated
