1994 Coachmen Santara gas tank

Hi everyone, newbie to the forum. I have a Generator hose issue. to Make it short, I have a fuel line issue and I want to change the Generator hose from my tank to the Generator. My preference is NOT to drop the tank but cut an access panel above the engine fuel pump intake (may not be the correct word selection). By the pictures I have seen the generator fuel line goes to the same place. MY Question finally is.........where on the tank is this located? In the Middle? It was mentioned in an earlier post something to do with rusting. I live in Arizona and this is a new concept here. Help me if you can.

Yes, chassis/engine make is important. My Santara is a Ford chassis. Not sure if Chevy was used but I know Coachman made a diesel Santara as well.

On my Ford chassis the pump and fuel lines enter the tank pretty much right in center.

scoutmstr & Nick-b, Thanks for the quick response. scoutmstr, I will visit the steps you took. Nick-b, the chassis is a ford. E350 with a 460 cu/in engine. I hoping it is the center. Any place to see Pics? Do you guys see any reason I shouldn't continue as planned?

Depending on the Chassis owned I would say it is just a 2.5' long fuel hose and is accessible for you to change. My have to be a contortionist to get to the tank side but it can be done. I am have generator problems due to the fuel line being so old and sucking air. If you buy some 1/4 inch hose and connect it to the Fuel filter with a funnel you can pour gas into the funnel to see if it is operating properly. Always keep in mind that you are working with gas and can be dangerous. There could be several reasons why the Generator is not working. I am sure their are lots of members who can tell you of their experiences.

Oooops! An E350 chassis means it is a Class C Santara. As you can see from my avatar pic, I have the larger Class A chassis. All bets are off as to where the gas tank access hole is located. Hopefully someone with a similar coach who has dealt with this before will come along.
