with the gauge close to empty, we normally put on 22-26.5 gallons. the pump from o'reilys says it fits a 1991- ours was built in 1989... Doesnt the sending unit need to fit the tanks depth? one for a 22 gallon tank wont work on a 75 gallon tank will it?

If you put 26.5 gallons in it with it near empty then you have that 38 gallon tank.
You do have a F53 chassis, do you not?
Or is it a John Deere chassis.

Are you saying that the fuel gauge worked before they worked on it and now it does not. If that is the case I would guess you have a wiring problem.

no, I have a E350 chassis. yes fuel gauge worked before the replaced the pump, and wiring is what i thought. but mechanic (and I use that term loosely) says its the unit....

It seems like they had a 36 or 40 Gal tank but I do not see any listed in the auto part suppliers look ups.

This should be the gauge sender for your RV after looking back at my old notes.

thanks for link. Still confused as to which to buy. Seems like you need to match tank size, and what side of unit the float comes down on....will have to wait til i get the thing back from the shop to fix it.

I have a 1988 E350 class C with a 38 gallon tank. The exact replacement for mine was an Airtex E2060S that I got on Amazon. I called Airtext and they were very helpful. For the gauge to work correctly you need to know the ohms it uses. There are two different ones that read differently. Search my other post and it will give the details. I would post a picture of the unit but every time I select the picture icon my computer exits the Internet.

This was my post about the pump that shows the ohm readings

I have a 1988 with the 460 fuel injected motor and it was doing basically the same thing but it was vapor lock. 20 miles after I bought it the thing died. It cost me $1400 to get it towed home. I found it had a stopped up converter. The motor was getting some much engine bay temperature it would act like it was starved for fuel and die. I could let it cool then it would crank up and run fine till it got hot again. Ultimate fix was to put a copper manifold gasket on it with all new bolts. Removed the converter and installed a two into one pipe in it's place. I also dropped the fuel tank and installed a new sending unit and pump. Runs great now. I got my pump off amazon for about $163. I called Airtex and they gave me the number E2060 and the ohms were the same as my sender (10 & 80). I have a single 38 gallon center mounted tank.
