Fuel pump in, however...

Got the new in-line fuel pump and filter in, but checking over the fuel lines, we found a problem. The fuel line is split open.

So, tomorrow, we go buy a bunch of fuel line and replace it. And anyone know what it's called that the fuel line is attached to? Also, I'm having a problem replacing the windshield wipers. I can't find any to fit. Any suggestions? Maybe replace the whole wiper arm?

Not sure what you are asking, but, on the fuel pump you should have a suction (inlet from the tank), a return line (back to the tank) and output to the motor. Does this help?

We replaced an in-line fuel pump, it didn't have all that. This is something right off the gas tank. I was wondering what the fuel line was hooked up to.

Ok I missed the part on the in-line pump. I agree with the soleniod for switching tanks.

Looks to me like the in tank fuel pickup and float assembly. Maybe also the fuel pickup for the generator? If your that far along, you might want to pull out that fuel pickup and replace it. Sometimes they have a filter sock on the end of the pickup that gets plugged from dirt in the fuel tank.

Wow. Yeah, we are planning to replace all fuel lines. Just trying to get it started, then take it over to my house to finish the work as laying on gravel isn't fun.

If it still doesn't run, that will be the next thing we tackle. Even if we do get it running,I think it will be a good thing to replace based on the way it was acting when I parked it, cutting out, backfiring and hesitating.

That is a fuel tank selector switch

BWD FSV1 - Fuel Tank Selector Valve | O'Reilly Auto Parts

Installation Instructions: http://cdn.wildhorses4x4.com/downloa...%2011-8-07.pdf

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