On most units, code 17 is Fuel Pump fault.

What is the full model number of your unit?

Your luck is just like mine - you are just a couple months out of warranty. (Unless you bought the coach new after August of 2013 - then you would still be in warranty).

On this unit, code 17 is Fuel Pump fault. The controller senses an open circuit in the fuel pump circuit.

Unplug the tan wire from the fuel pump, and test it for 12V while pressing the start button.

There should be 12V there.

Jump 12V directly to the pump, making sure to provide for a good ground. If the pump does not come on, it is bad.

If the pump does come on, but you do not get 12V to the tan wire, there is a control problem or a broken wire.
