If you have a long crank time before you try to start cycle the key on for ten seconds then off. Then back on for ten seconds do this eight to ten times then try and start if it starts tight up fuel pump is weak or filter is dirty I change fuel filter every 10000 miles on gas a good tech can put fuel pump on square wave scope and tell if it going out

Our old fleet of Dodge vans had many fuel pump issues as well. Caused by running on low fuel levels which allowed pumps to run hot and burn out

That is SO TRUE....

One thing about Fords.. I do not know if they still do it this way and I do not know if it applies to "Big Rigs" but on ford cars there is a reset button somewhere (Location varies) and if something trips the trip.. For example a seriously big pot hole,,, IT shuts off the fuel pump... NOTHING is wrong.. Working as designed.. Just push button and drive off.

Had it happen to me when I hit a Pot Hole with a car.. Being a retired police dispatcher I knew what to do.

For the miles you will probably actually put on the motorhome I would just replace the pump. Not too many people ever put even close the 30,000 miles on one. At my shop whenever we change out an in tank pump we always drain the tank, just makes the job easier to do. At 6 pounds a gallon those tanks get heavy quick, and yes they almost always fail when the tank is full

On our 1999 Pace Arrow Vision on a F53 chassis, we had well over 100,000 miles and still had the original fuel pump. I never let it get below a 1/4 tank... the fuel acts as a heat sink for the motor in the pump. In the last week or so, Cartalk had a reader question and they also recommended keeping the fuel level up
