Fuel station

Hello,

I recently purchased a 2004 30 foot triple axle weekend warrior. On our first trip, I discovered that the fuel station did not work. The previous owner mentioned that he had replaced the pump.

I am asking if anyone can give me ideas on how to test the pump and switch. Is this a DC application?

We have 2018 Road Warrior on our unit there are 2 switches for the fuel pump. One is inside the unit with the other light switches and the second switch is on the pump unit where the hose is located.
The inside switch is a timer. It remains on for 15 minutes then shuts off. This is to prevent theft of fuel. You must start the inside switch first then turn on the switch on the outside at the pump.

Also this things have been known to fail because the inside of the pump handle gears swell and they need to be rebuilt or replaced. Easier to replace then rebuild.

Don't know if you have 2 switches or not, but check to see if there are two.

Thanks for your reply. The model has a timer switch at the pump. I have looked all through the trailer for some other switch with no avail. I will get a tester light and check it out later today.

Alright good luck let me know how it goes on figuring it out. Bad thing you may need to repair the pump handle if the gears are swollen.

I just replaced the pump gears on our Desert Fox TH fuel pump. The rebuild kit was under $50 bucks and I only used the gears and a gasket. They were swelling due to ethanol or so they say.

I only had to remove 4 bolts and put the gears in and insert the gasket.

Easy-Peasy. 20 minutes if you have the parts. Get the pump model and google for rebuild kits.

Also added a 10 micron fuel filter while I was at it. The fuel filter only is filtering the gas nozzel, the line to the generator remains unfiltered. The generator has its own inline filter.

Seriously, it was like a 15-minute job to change the gears in the pump. Took longer to get the make and model, then google for a rebuild kit. It's very nice to have the pump working again! Four bolts!

your right, it is fairly straight forward and quick enough to change. i did replace them, sold the 1st one before i used it and when i rebuilt the pump on the 2nd toyhauler, it swelled up and seized again maybe the 2nd or 3rd time i used it. so i have never put fuel in my 2011 wolf pack 295 fuel station. also not a fan of no drain valve on the tanks. my last toyhauler was a 2008 wolf pack 30wp and the one before was a keystone.

Im not familiar with the pumps on the toy haulers but we have transfer pumps on our work pickups. Im pretty sure mines from tractor supply. We just have them hooked straight up to the battery, this could work for testing if the pump will run on 12v power.
