2003 Natioal Tradewinds LLC

I posted a couple weeks ago...but for some reason I can't find the wonderful information people helped me with.
First of all. I don't have an owners Manuel. Someone posted me a place to print one off..or gave me an address of theirs, but my printer ran out of ink on page 50 something...so please get back to me with that info.
2. My coach has a Country Coach Chasis. Does anyone know if that has an Electri fuel pump on it?
3. Is there a way to access the engine from the bedroom on the 2003 National Tradewinds LLC? That would seem like something easy to find..but we can't figure out how to open it. And with no manuels..please help.
4. This 2003 National Tradewinds LLC just turned over 60,000 miles.
We can not get it to idle..well now even start. We've got a 1/2 of a quarter tank of fuel left..my bf is installing another electric fuel pump to try to get this problem fixed? Any other ideas?

Do you mean a National Tradewinds LTC? Usually LLC means a 'limited liability company.' Lift the mattress off the bed and look for latches or access to an engine hatch. Since you refer to engine under the bed, I assume it's a diesel. If you interrupt the fuel flow, as installing an electric fuel pump, you can introduce air into the lines which must be purged before the engine will fire. Please give more information as to engine type, then perhaps people can suggest how to bleed the air out or prime the high pressure fuel pump.

The DynoMax chassis does not have a electric fuel pump. If what you are saying about having" 1/2 of a quarter tank" of fuel, I would suggest you add 20 or 30 gallons of fuel as you could be empty.

When you get some fuel in the tank, turn the ignition on for 10 seconds and then off. Do this sequence 5 or 6 times and then try to start the motor. The Cummins is a self priming motor and doind the ignition dance will prime the motor.
