Hi crazyreamy and Welcome to the forum!

It would help tremendously if you included more info. What chassis do you have under your Southwind - Ford or Chevy? Is it fuel injected or carbureted? Your 1990 coach could be on a 1989 chassis (common) and those years were transition times in fuel delivery for both Ford and Chevy.

Let us know and someone will have the answer for you.

Best of luck and enjoy your motorhome.

Well if it is like my 1990 GB with a GM chassis it is tucked into the frame rail on the passengers side across from the transmission

x2 on my 82 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Chev 454. Ours is covered with a piece of tin, 2 screws. Follow the line into this area and I'm sure you will find them

You also didn't say what your problem is? If you have the GM chassis with the throttle body injection engine, you will have a fuel pump inside the fuel tank. The fuel pump inside the tank has a fine mesh sock on the end of the fuel pump pickup tube. This filter sock will ( over a period of time ) get plugged with crud from the dirt inside your tank and block the flow of fuel to the engine.


The only way to fix this problem is to drop the tank and get it cleaned out, then install a new in tank pump. Make sure to label which fuel line goes to the inlet, outlet and generator.


My first class A motorhome was a 1990 Pace Arrow on the GM chassis and I had this problem from day one.

The sock filter would apply whether you have a carburetor or TBI.

From 1985 1/2 and later, all P30 chassis had an in tank fuel pump.

Carburetor versions:
A. Fuel regulator on passenger side frame rail behind rear wheels
B. Fuel filter (GF509) on passenger side frame rail outboard transmission
C. Fuel filter in carburetor fuel inlet port.

TBI versions
A. Fuel regulator built into TBI unit on intake manifold
B. Fuel filter (GF481) on passenger side frame rail outboard transmission
