Fleetwood Southwind 32v fuel pump advice

I am doing preventive maintenance to my 1998 southwind 65,000 miles7.5 liter chevy engine. hoses, belt inspection ect. Since being stranded with park brake issues i have become more inclined to be prepared for emergency.I am wondering about the fuel pump knowing it can be problematic. My question is does the fuel pump generally show signs of failure giving warning? Should I have the pump replaced as preventive maintenance? comments welcome...thanks in advance

Electric fuel pumps usually don't give a warning. Your engine is common enough in all parts of the U.S. I'd be very surprised if you couldn't find one in most any auto parts store. Changing out a perfectly good pump doesn't make a lot of sense. You could go ahead and replace every part that might fail, I think it's called buying a brand new RV.
