Curious if any of you CC owners know if CC used B20 compatible fuel hose/s in the later model years?
Genesis for my question: On the last leg of our recent 106 day trip, I had the genset mysteriously shut down while boondocking (during the night). I was able to restart it easily and it ran fine for many hours. Since we had been buying a lot of fuel over many states, I changed the fuel filter. It did it again about two weeks later. On the very last night of our trip in a Walmart, I heard the genset surge, sort of sputter, then quit. Again, I was able to restart it and it ran fine for another 8 hours. And no, I did not think to look at the blinking switch to decipher fault codes
. When I remembered that I could do that, it was too late.
We bought a lot of fuel from Pilot and Flying J's and I have read that the J uses biodiesel up to 20% in some areas. I've read that B20 can degrade rubber and clean crud out of your fuel system and clog your filters.
In looking again at the Onan manual for my 10KW genset, it says B5 is OK but above that, make sure the coach builder used B20 compatible fuel lines and also that a water separator should be installed just before the generator.
So, curious if others have had similar issues, what fuel hoses do you have, etc.
