Broke down in WV

Well it happened sooner than I expected. And we are sitting here at a rest stop.
Here is what happened this spring going to Florida we noticed something leaked a little. I never could find the source or tell for sure what it was. A short trip later did not notice any problem. We left yesterday for Morgantown,Wv and when I arrive noticed that again something leaked thus time though I new it was fuel. Did some quick reading about others with similar problems at the lift pump. They drove to next stop and took care of it. So that was my plan. But going up and down the many hills finally started losing power pulled into a restop off I-77 and fuel was pouring out.

So couple questions.
Anyone have recommendations on who to call?

I have a local guy coming out but expect he may not be able to resolve quickly and I will be hunting for someone tomorrow.
We are near Beckley,WV.

Call the nearest garage or service center. Ask for the number and name of their Snap-on dealer. Call him to find a good reliable shop to do the repair. He will know all the local techs. The good and the bad. Good luck.

If you still have the RV listed in your profile , I'm assuming ISC , Cummins with the CAPS fuel system , there are 3 bolts, accessible from the top, that hold the lift pump to the under side of the fuel manifold , that when tightened can slow or stop the leak long enough to get the coach to a service center.
The picture here shows the manifold from the top, I'd try tightening the bolts, cycle the ignition 3 times with a 20 sec, wait between and see if you can get the engine started. Hopefully the injector pump can't draw in too much air and will get you started.

Sorry guys. Still the coach is the same as in my profile.
2002 MADP
Spartan Chassis
400 ISL
Skip looks like I need to access from the cover in bedroom.

I am not positive that is the source though as lots fuel around the CAPS and high pressure pump.

It was coming out fast when I pulled in. I quickly shut it off at that point.

A few pics but hard to see anything.
This area was pretty wet when I stopped.

Well service guy came and helped to locate the leak. $177 for that but I was expecting that.

We have a pin hole in one of the high pressure steel lines. Hopefully a new line is all that we need and we can locate one.

Tomorrow the hunt is on for a line and possibly a tow to a shop.

We have a 2nd home between Beckley and Lewisburg, but have not had to have any repairs while up there. If you are stuck there today, if for just a couple of hours and you have not been to Tamarack, take Mama there....exit 45 right on I-77 north of the I-64 cutoff. Lots of local craft shops and the Greenbriar resort has an informal café there with decently priced lunch. If you are going to be there all day and have not been to the Greenbriar resort, it is first exit (I-64) 5-6 mi east of Lewisburg and worth the drive. The grounds are beautiful, good food and shops, and even have tours of the huge once top secret bunker built underneath the resort during the cold war to act as a fallout shelter for congress. (while the rest of us fried) We were there 2 weeks back with the in laws who had never seen it. Just tell them you are there for lunch when you get to the gate.

Update:
Still stuck at the rest stop. Had another mobile service guy stopped by, forgot I told them to come in the morning. He took a look and found it was leaking at the distribution block and not a line. Could not do anything but also no charge for stopping by. 👍👍👍👍
He said would have to be fixed at a cummins dealer and gave me a couple names. Worldwide equipment was who I called and they are going to work me in on Monday and do all they can to get me back on the road. Gave me some names of wreckers that no how to handle big RVs unfortunately their big wrecker was broken down.😕😕😕😕. So after calling several others finally got a name but he is on a 911 call so will be here a few more hours waiting for his arrival.

Worldwide is about 10 miles down the road. They have a lot that I can stay in the RV overnight in. The wife and 2 daughters will need to head on down to Myrtle Beach as the dance convention starts Sunday for my daughter.
If all goes well I will join them on Monday evening.

Sorry to hear your situation but it happens. Glad your getting things moving in the right direction. I was curious if you had a road side service? I am guessing not since it seems you were handling all your mobile rv and towing service yourself.

No I had put off signing up for a service. Had been browsing the different options. Just signed up for coach net tonight as it would have paid for itself with just the mobile service run.

On a good note. The service area is near a small lake off the beaten path. So it is nice and quite here kind of like camping.....

We will all be in your situation sooner or later. I'm hoping a little later since I have only had my coach a short while but you have to be prepared for anything with machines this complex and expensive to repair. I bought the roadside assistance right away but did not buy an extended warranty. That was a little to rich for my blood and decided to play the odds on that one. Glad your making the best of things and let us know how it turns out.

"Spk64".....It sounds like you're handling this really well......good for you. Maybe you can open up some inside access points if necessary so they can get to it easier on Monday.
