fuel line question

I have a 26 foot Terry class a motorhome with a fuel leak. I isolated the leak to one of the fuel lines where they attach to the fuel pump. My question is are the fuel lines one piece from the pump to the engine (fuel injected) or are there splices in the line? The lines are buried in the frame so I can't examine them until I lower the tank.
Thanks, Buddy

Sorry you've got problems.
What Chassis is your M/H built on ?
Are the fuel lines you can see , metal or ridgid plastic ?
Depending on the chassis type and fuel filter location ; if any ; the line may be one piece, tank to engine.

Typically it will be one piece from tank to filter and another from filter to engine, but there is no "rule". Once in awhile there may be a coupling where a piece needs to zig-zag around something else - it's whatever is easiest to build and install at the chassis factory.

Thanks, Buddy

Usually they are hard lines similar to brake ones. You can always have some fabricated in rubber relatively inexpensive.
