We were loading the the MH and decided to go get fuel. Cranked over and started engine when it stopped after a few seconds. Since I read every thread on this forum - I remembered that it must be a fuel problem.
Checked my site on the filter and the fuel was there a looked good. tried to run the key switch about 10 time to prime the pump but still nothing... Tour the bed apart to get to the engine. Now I was friggin frantic. opened the final filter and there was fuel ok. now with the filter out I could see if the lift pump would deliver fuel. Had the DW sit at the helm and asked her to turn the key on while I look in the filter bowl to see fuel pump into the filter input.
there I was perched on the engine and asked her to turn the key on. SHE did - all the way and crank the engine. I nearly ran a brown streak. Next I asked her to only turn the key to ignition position. she knows were that is and it was my fault for not being exact.
Well anyway - fuel did flow into the bowl and we ran that key a few more times to fill the bowl. I replaced the filter and put the cover back on loosely and ran the key one more time to fill the filter so fuel would squirt out a little and then final tightening of cover.
went up to and blessed myself before starting engine. She started normally so I put the cover back on the engine, pull down the bed, replaced the mattress and got fuel. We are on our way to Florida in the AM.
So I guess my story is just to say thanks to all the other members who have written comments or solution to this problem. All your intelligence sunk into my brain which made my day a lot better by allowing me to fix my problem.
still not sure why the filter lost prime. last time we ran the MH was September 1st.
