Even though I'm cheap enough to do most all of my own work, my vote would be to let the shop handle this as well. Then you're done with it, allowing you to move on. If you try it yourself, this thing could haunt you for quite a while.

Too, if my lady gets to the point she doesn't feel safe in it, it's going to cost me the price of another one....

RV Back at home

Finally have the RV back with us. They shows us the clump of algae that was found in the fuel line that caused the quick clog and shut down of RV that we experienced. It never made it to the filter. Fuel is treated and we have spare filters and now know what to do to get things cleaned out.

Mechanics made sure they showed us how to maintain until the algae is all gone.

Hope we can enjoy a few more times before the winter settles in.

Glad you got it repaired. Keep up with the fuel treatments and filter changes and you should be OK. Best of luck. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

Back in Business

Think we are back in business. Have RV back, told to drive it and change filter if warning light comes or or engine starts cutting out. Drove 231 miles -- pulled over several times and checked reservoir in filter, saw a few small specs, but nothing major. Decided to make the entire round trip and fueled up on return to have a full tank while using the chemicals.

Finally feeling optimistic.
