Our 1987 Bounder has been giving issues with starting( mainly with standing for long periods without running,will be sorting that out soon).
It seems to be as I've read on other RV forums to be centered around the oil pressure switch/sender on the engine. Where it signals oil pressure & starts the fuel pump. Only problem being it doesnt register pressure until the engine is running. Without that pressure signal the pump wont shoot fuel 34 feet to the carb!!
Have started it a few times last week, just put more fuel in, but again appears that its drained back down to the tank. So the engine turns over fine, just no smell of gas from the carb or any ignition. Electrics/ignition are fine as when the fuel is right the engine swings into life with no problems.
It has the pump in the tank plus an electric one mid way to the carb (in passenger side storage bay, as placed conveniently by fleetwood.
Just wondering has anyone done this conversion where a momentary switch is placed in the wires from the pressure switch,allowing the fuel pump to work & send gas up to the carb ready to start,turn on key push switch for 10 seconds to get gas then turn switch off & crank the engine.
any diagrams or good guides to do it? I know its a simple mod but never done it before & want to be extra sure before cutting into the wiring!
Thanks in advance for any help/advice
