09 Outlaw Fuel Station no worky

Is there a second switch that needs turned on besides the little flip handle
once you pull the hose out? Or where do I look for a fuse that might be blown.?
First time using the fuel station. Everything else is working great.

If there is power coming to the pump and the ground is good, then the problem is in the pump interior parts. There is a rubber star that spins inside the pump that can expand and cause the pump to seize.

If there is no power at the pump, then the fuse is blown on the panel inside the coach.

Best luck

I am no electrical genius, but have some people here at the track who can diagnose. Will check it out. Thanks for the lookout.

Newer Outlaws have secret button to make pump work

Our 2015 outlaw pump station requires three steps. 1) ground the pump to frame - you will see clip and place to hook. 2) turn pump switch on near pump. 3) in the OTHER larger bay two bays down there is a long 'button/switch' near top of bay you must push in and hold in. In other words,it take two people to pump. Text me if you can't find. 2522928292

Not sure if it was mentioned, but ensure you 50amp compartment door is closed. Thee is a limit switch bottom left corner on mine by the weather stripping.

Good info gang. Can anyone confirm that the 09 has the same setup?
I will take a look this weekend when I get back home.

Sounds like "Nanny Engineering" at it's best...I think these 2 posts might be the same deal. They want the electric service bin door closed while using the fueling station.

This is not how it was in the older units...you should be able to just turn it on a and pump.

This problem is that the pump is fed by a tiny fuel line. The pressure will seem high at first, then the flow will decrease. These pumps were designed to pull fuel from a barrel. But, the pump is not sitting on the tank, so the "bottle neck" is the rubber line shared with the generator feed.
And the flow will stop at about 1/4 tank to prevent accidental stranding of the RV.

Best luck
