About a year and a half ago, I experienced a complete drop to zero in the fuel gage and the sounding of an alarm. I immediately reported it to Workhorse, and they said "it's just a gliche in the instruments. It will be fixed with a recall soon. The recall came and went, but my alarm annoyance stayed. Last week I took it to Cummins service nearby. They worked three hours and had Workhorse on the phone in an effort to find the problem. They finally called me to report that they couldn't fix it because they couldn't duplicate the problem. I contacted Workhorse, and was told that they couldn't do anything since it couldn't be duplicated. So far, I have had nothing serious happen, but it worries the heck out of me. It is intermittent and appears to right itself, but is just shouldn't happen. I told Workhorse that it appears to me that since my warranty runs out next year, all they have to do is wait me out. Oh well, another "customer loses" situation. In the past, I was Workhorse's biggest fan. Now I'm not so big. Anybody have this problem before. This week I plan to write to Workhorse and anyone else who might be able to help me. I will get this fixed somehow.

I had the same thing happen last week after filling tank, its not the first time maybe three or four times before. I also had my IP flashed last week asked if there flash would fix the fuel gage problem, got a dumb look.
Chassis was built Oct 02 fuel gage problem has been my only problem with IP.
More people have had their IP's changed out more than once to solve problems but this one is still the same even with the new IP's. Still working on it. "007"

I had a problem with my gas gauge going to zero and the alarm sounding. It happened every time I filled the tank. I have a 2005 Winnie Voyage. The service center replaced the sending unit in the gas tank and that took care of the problem. However, when they replaced the sending unit, the service center squeezed the gas line feed to the generator and I had to make another trip to the service center to have that problem fixed!

We had a similar problem with our F350. After many replacements of parts and frustration, turned out to be a bad ground.
