Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

To access the fuel pump on this unit, there is a cover on the right end base of the genset that needs to be removed.

Depending on how the genset is mounted in your coach, this may well cause you to exhaust your entire supply of 4-letter words, as well as the entire stock of both yours and yoru neighbors Bud Light.

Worst case scenario, it may also mean having to remove the genset from the coach,.

What is the best way to test this pump?
Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.

The best way to test it is like this:

Remove the fuel return line from the genset.

Attach a length of fuel hose to the nipple on the genset, and place the end of the hose in an empty container of at least 1 quart capacity.

Press and hold the "STOP/PRIME" button for exactly 1 minute.

In 1 minute, it should pump a minimum of 1/2 pint of fuel.
