It must be the fuel pump, could possible be the filter, but that usually will allow you to start. Do you hear the pump when you turn the ignition on? Could be a fuse.

b4ucame57, it would help a bit if we knew what year model coach you have. Some pre 1999 fords were notorius for in-tank fuel pump failure. Also be sure and check all your fuses.

The fuel pump maybe your problem. When its hot in summer months you get a vapor lock condition. If you set for a while it may start up again, if you can get to a gas station put in some fresh cool fuel I was able to travel for miles in my Bounder.
On a 460 engine under your air cleaner housing there is a vacume valve if its been laying on hot engine you will have a hole in it and you will need a new one from motor parts store a number is stamped on it.
Welcome to irv2 by the way stay cool just a minor set back, thats what RVing is all about.

You've already gotten answers regarding your fuel problem and I agree with the rest that it's most likely a fuel pump problem (it's located in the fuel tank I believe). Anyway, Welcome to iRV2, b4ucame57.

just to clear things up I put a matel cover over the hole screw down then the rug. There is 8 in. between floor and matel plate over tank, lots of room in there.

Dear Skip:

Hi. When replacing that pump, we're going
to cut a "porthole" in the floor to make future
replacements easier. Does the tank have to be
dropped and drained FIRST or can the cut be made
with the tank in place? Thanks.

Paul

Dear Gary:

Hi. Did you drop and drain the tank FIRST,
to mark the hole location or can you cut it with
the tank still in place? There's a "porthole"
that covers the hole so it still looks ok, I'll
try to post the company who makes it. Thanks.

Paul
