Yeah that does make since, I'm wondering if I have one hidden on mine ! I have a new FASS system I bought to put on a Dodge PU ... I'm really thinking about installing it on my RV... I think it's the 150gpm one...

I would look for the chassis fuse panel. There has to be one for the rolling chassis before they build the coach on top of it.

The inline filter in the frame rail has to be a chassis manufacturer install. I would at the very least take it out and put on a canister filter housing with a spin on filter for ease. You could also bypass it and rely on the engine fuel filter. They look like standard fittings either way.

When the wait to start lights goes out I turn the key to start engine. Have to do that sometimes 5 times before engine starts. What I hear is just a click when the key is turned to start position. When key is first turned waiting for lights on dash to go out there is a relay sound clicking. Any ideas?

My opinion is that everyone with a diesel should carry a spare fuel filter. Even if recently changed it is possible to get some bad fuel. Its not expensive or difficult to change, so why not and at least eliminate that as the problem. If your not running bio diesel then algae additives are a waste of money. JMO.

Our coach did that once after sitting few months. Cummins 350. Camped overnight, never did it again.
Hope that happens for you also.

You are doing more harm than good by doing this. You can't run the Cummins under load and at full operating temperature by idling it at the storage lot. Read up on this at the Cummins site.

If you run the generator, load it to at least half of its rated capacity and let it run for an hour under that load.

I have a 2001 330 Cummins that did same thing twice. Almost feels if the transmission has a hick up, very intermittent. First time last spring for about 40 miles. After stopping for lunch it was fine. When we got home I dropped the tank and cut it open, cleaned, sealed and reinstalled. (huge messy pain in the a## job-- 6 days work) I changed fuel filters and all was good for the rest of the summer. Started out on a trip in October when it happened again. We drove for a while then pulled into a rest area and shut it down for a few minutes. Started it up and all was good the rest of the trip. Strange that both times it went away after shutting down and restarting.
