Well maybe you folks could take the jaunt up 101 sometime and we could meet at Brookings or Cresent City. After the Moab trip crashed I got to thinking there is some great BLM sites between KFalls and Lakeview. We are going to definately check them out.

I love Brookings and Crecent City but it's been awhile since we've been there.

A trip up there sounds good......let us know.

From the first time I looked at our LE that bare water supply running across the bottom of the tank unprotected has pestered the h*** out of me. Yesterday I got an 8' lenth of 1/2" foam pipe insulation and covered it and secured it to the braces so it would'nt flop around. Granted the foam does'nt add much protection other than chaffing,but it gives a better appearance and some insulation for these cooler autum nights. At some point I am going to reroute the pipe between the tanks to provide some protection.
I had posted earlier that I had found all tank sensing connectors loose. They are all now tight and dabbed with liquid electric tape to protect fron corrosion and loosening. Feed wires are now protected in plastic wire loom.

connor2002 That is Correct. With a flip of the switch you can pump from the 20 Gal or 40 Gal tank. Here is a website to buy the 3way switch and barb fitting from if you need it. You will need 4 barb fittings. The 4th goes in the extra fuel outlet on the 20 Gal tank.

Fuel Valve Web site

WW has different fuel tank options. Most people order the 40 Gal pump tank and the 20 Gal Gen tank. Problem is the only way to empty the 20 is to burn it through the Gen. So we all add the 3way valve and add the Barb to the 20 Gal tanks second fuel outlet and now we can pump gas from the 40 or the 20 out the fuel pump station. Sounds like the provious owner of yours did not order the second 20 gal tank HB.

it looks like i am against the grain on another issue. (That is not my intention) ... but I had them DELETE my 20 gallon fuel tank from my trailer when it was being built.

Sure it saved me $125 (no big deal), sure it save a few pounds of weight (no big deal), ... but over the years that i have owned my 3 different WW's, i hvae rarely empied all my tanks in an outing. I guess i have been inconvenienced more by emptying gas out of the tanks once i get back home more then i have been inconvenienced by not having enough gas when i'm out there camping. I have my gen AND fuel station feeding from a single 40 gallon tank. If this ever bums me out, i install a 2nd tank myself.
I figured i might want a tank for diesel or a tank for race fuel in the future, but i'll buy a tank and weld a strap holding it on myself.

Oh,.... and i don't like gel-coat either.
(but i'll tell you what ... that darn slide i got this time around, has made me very happy)

Mike

could I then switch the feed lines, I drink more than I ride. Iwant the ability to run the genny all weekend if need be. I think 20 gal for the bikes is enough.
