Winnebago may have used a relay rather than a direct switch for selection.

Thanks Dave. I will see if I need to replace that, too, once we get the new hose installed.

UPDATE: The holey hose runs to the generator. I guess that's why, when I bought it, the dealer said the generator didn't work. So, for right now, we will leave that. But the starter motor, which was dying a slow death, finally completely gave out. It will crank for a little bit, then just whine. So, back to the store and ordered a new one. At least that is an easy fix.

Oh, loads. I'm just having loads of fun.

I really don't like working on cars that much. But, by the time I'm done, everything will be new...on the chassis at least. lol

The generator would not be connected to the fuel system by a fuel selector valve so, does the valve also have a wire attached to it? Just trying to determine it it is in fact a fuel select valve. If it is a fuel select valve, like the picture I posted, then the engine could be trying to suck gas out of the generator rather than the fuel tank. Normal generator fuel hose connection is to a 2nd nipple (pickup tube) at the fuel tank not attached to the chassis engine fuel line.

Ok, after talking again with my son, who is the one actually under the motor home doing the work as I don't get up and down off the ground very well anymore, he says it goes to the aux gas tank, not the generator. (My son is adopted and a little slow and English is not his first language, so he sometimes gets things mixed up). He says it will be hard to get to the other end of the fuel hose where it connects to the tank. But, again, I'll get to that later, just want to get it running right now.

Thats good. Given that the pdf link for the installation procedure I provided indicates that the one on the end is for the AUX tank and your holely hose is on the same nipple, it is most likely a good bet that the lower is the main on yours. Just make sure dash switch is set to main not aux.

I made sure today that it was on main tank. I flipped it back and forth twice to be really sure.
