I too have the moving fuel guage, up and down the whole Full to Empty range - almost constantly. Coach Care diagnosed as bad sending unit - as others have found out.
For those of you who replaced the sending unit ($34 part the poster said), is this something that is done outside the tank or does the whole float assembly also have to be replaced?
Thanks for the help.
David

David,

I had to replace the sending unit on my '03 and it was a snap to reach behind the left front tire. I think there were 4 screws to remone and the unit pops right out of the tank. You need to be sure your tank is low, or place it on an incline so you don't have a flood of diesel.

I'm looking at the same problem.
Next question: as far as placing it on an incline; in what attitude (front down, rear down, right side down, etc.)?

Look at the hole in relation to the tank. You'll probably want to head a little up hill and tilt to the right - away from the hole.

VBM,

Thanks.
That gives me a place to look if the Dealer doesn't get it right.
