In May of this year I posted a request on how common a fuel leak would be on the top of the fuel tank of my motorhome. It was the return line from the Genset. I had many responses with the end result being my writting a letter to Motorhome Magazine asking for help.

I just recieved a letter from National RV saying a check was in the mail for half the cost of the 680 dollar repair. Better than nothing.

I doubt the magazine will print my letter, but I do appreciate their help. Something for everyone to keep in mind for things not covered by, or past warrenty.

Hello Tom,

I think it's great that you obtained a partial refund of the repairs made to your motorhome, it's amazing how much clout Motorhome Magazine has with the RV industry. Since I'm a trailer person, I regularly read a similar piece, the "RV Action Line", in TRAILER LIFE magazine with much interest. Often, readers will obtain well deserved relief from recalcitrant RV industry businesses after the "Action Line's" intervention.

A few years back, the Administrators at iRV2.com discussed providing such an "Action Line" service to our members but unfortunately had to abandon our desire because we didn't have a qualified volunteer member to handle such an endeavor. I'm always delighted to learn of an RV'r getting what's due them from a business who has either given shoddy service, cheated a member, or sold a bad product and won't step up to the plate to do what's right.

Thanks for sharing this with us and I hope you don't have any additional problems with your motorhome.
