The electric steps don't work (needs a new motor). The generator will run if you put the fuel line into a gas can, but will not pull fuel from the main motorhome fuel tank? Does anybody have any experience with either of these two problems on a 1993 Damon Challenger (Chevy Chassis)?

Wish I could help... Sounds like you may need to start a new thread.

I have a 82 30ft PA 454 / 4 barrel Dual exhaust if I keep my foot out of it I will get around 8 miles per gallon and that is with my toad in tow.
Not sure what type genie you have but I have a Onan 6.5 Gen-Set I had to replace the fuel pump $35.00 and I did it in about 15 minutes. I also added a filter being the MH is of age.
I am not positive but the stairs motor is a electric car window motor but someone else will know for sure.
We like pictures did you get any? Plus there are a lot of us that like older Motorhomes. Now a days they all look the same to me.
Good luck and tell us what you get.
Tim

Regarding the generator problem; the one we used to have could not pull full from main tank if fuel level was 1/4 or lower. The fuel pick for the generator was mounted high in tank to prevent the gen from running the coach out of fuel and leaving you stranded.

often the rubber gas line from the generator fuel pump to the tank either gets crimped or deteriorates to the point where the pump is sucking air thru holes in the gas line

Also the old pumps just go to crap...

The old rubber parts get dried out then new gas turns them into goo
