Question Winnebago Elandan 87 Fuel Pump Selection

Trying to get a recently purchased Elandan on the road. Specifics: 1987 chevy 454 /carb 37ft .Purchased two different fuel pumps, neither had pumping power to put gas to carb. How do I make certain I have correct fuel pump, do I need to give VIN. Have many more question but will start with this, it seems you guy are like mythological gods and truely know all. Appreciate any comments.

washotto, welcome aboard!

What type of fuel pumps are you purchasing, and where is it mounted if it is an electric pump? I had an 87 Chev Estblishment motorhome and it had both the engine mounted mechanical pump, and an electric pump that was mounted near the fuel tank. I am familiar with both types.

If this rig has not been running for some time you might need to check everything from the carb to the fuel tank. There can be plugged up filters and fuel lines everywhere from the carb to the gas tank. I have seen tank selector switches plugged or not working. So if you disconnect the fuel line at the carb and crank the engine do you get fuel there? If not, disconnect the fuel line to the pump from the tank and put the line in a gas can to see if it sucks gas from the can. Let us know what you find. Les

Hi, I owned a '86 Windcruiser (Itasca version of Elandon). As I recall there was a transfer valve between the Main Fuel Tank and #2 Tank. If you have that set up that might be where the problem is.
Just a guess but that valve was replaced twice by Winnebago in Forest City on my Coach.
