water in fuel

Could not get my rig to turn over. The warning icon came on indicating, water in fuel. I have a 2012 Monaco Knight with a 350 Maxxforce 10 engine. Do I just drain the water/fuel separator or ?.

Drain your fuel/ water separator an see if water come out. If water comes out
I would change your filters to be safe and then I would get a small pump and
see how much water there is in the bottom of your tank. If you have water in
the tank you need to clean it out. There are people around that can clean your
fuel and it is call fuel polishing.

The warning icon for "water in fuel" is for the water separator on the fuel filter. Once the lower bowl gets X amount of water in it a switch trips the icon on. Drain the water separator and run the unit to ensure the icon is off, then keep and eye on the filter bowl after each days drive and see if there's water there. When was the last time you drained your water separator filter?

I've never drained it, but rig just went thru hurricane downpours although I doubt that would have an affect. Where is the separator on my 350 maxxforce 10 located? It has only been stored for less than two months and has never done this before. Engine has about 24000 miles on it.

I don't claim to know anything about the Maxxforce engine
but on my Cummins engine the water in fuel light has never
caused it to not turn over .
Does your engine make any attempt to turn over ?
Do you hear anything when trying ?
You say it has been stored , so I suggest you charge the batteries .
Do you have electricity available ? If not then see if you can get the
gen started and then you can plug in a charger and connect it
to your chassis ( engine ) batteries .
Let them charge for at least an hr or longer then try again .

Could be the chassis batteries. When I get back to storage area again I'll try running the genny and hook up my battery charger. Thanks for info.
