Customer Question

I have a 1988 itasco motorhome. I don't know where the fuel pump is located. I was told it had a mechanical pump on the engine but I can't find it. It has a chevy 454 engine.
JA: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?
Customer: NO, I got the rv from a friend. It was running when he parked it 4 years ago. It runs as long as I put fuel in the carb.
JA: What is the model of your '88 RV?
Customer: Suncruiser
JA: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not a mechanic. so pretty much nothing.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: that is it for now.
