I have a 1996 Beaver Monterey the fill hose enters the tank about six inches from the bottom.
There is about 18 inches of marine hose entering the tank this hose cracked and leaked.
As it is low on the tank there is always diesel in this hose
Anyone with a 10 year old Beaver or like model should check this hose
It makes for a bad day to replace hose with about 60 gal diesel in tank and in campground

Hi Montie -

Welcome to irv2 We're really glad to have you here as a new member and are looking forward to reading your posts about your RVing experiences and adventures. You'll find a great bunch of folks on this site who are very knowledgeable of RVing, the rigs we use, and the places we go in them. Enjoy the forums and post often, and when you want to be a official member of the forum, just let me know.

Very good point about the fuel-hose. I found a similar example several years ago. The Ford Mustang I had developed an intermittent fuel-pump problem so I bought a new fuel-pump for it, only to find the pump is INSIDE the tank. No problem thought I, I'll just get under there and drop the tank and swap pumps. All went well except forgetting the tank was still more than 3/4 full when I dropped it... which meant about 14 gallons of fuel plus the tank itself suddenly landed on my head, chest and stomach. Ouch!

Glad to have you with us.

Ron
