And Boy Howdee, what a morning it’s already been! Up on the lift, Spacley’s fuel leak when he fills up is pretty obvious with the tanks down Of course his fuel hoses were petrified fossils I’m sorry guys and I do empathize with you but if your fuel hoses (56′ of vent hose alone under there) in the past 4 years…. they are not “30R” Ethanol resistant hose… the Ethanol dries out and deteriorates synthetic (Nitrile) rubber. Your hoses will look like these. You say, “Hey, I’ve got no leaks”…. I don’t need no stinkn hoses…… Yes you do you just don’t know it. God will take care of you for a while but sooner or later, fuel fumes, motor konking out, fuel dripping or pouring under the coach…….. one or all of those things will happen. No luck will save you…. it’s bad and you know it. So now that you know it’s going to fail! See, you should have stayed under the mattress today!
Hey and think of the barnacles that could be in your fuel tank and the tank? Don’t worry there Spacely these are not yours….. hey but check out how clean the outlet lines were looking at the top of the sender…. By having the filter sock connected at the middle says these are NOT original senders… these replacement senders have gone this far… and I will tell you the coach WAS still getting fuel somehow out of these tanks! Now, think about your tanks…. have you looked at them in 4 years….. this could be u! I have some work to do, I’ll be back later…… .
Phew! For a second I was like WTH? Then I noticed how clean those outlet lines were and thought I bet (HOPE really) they aren’t mine, then got to the disclaimer….Heart rate returning to normal…..

Jim- re the FiTech system:
We are interested in this fi system and have printed all of your FiTech blog pages as you suggested. We will be showing these printouts to our mechanic (he is a MSD guy). But your narrative convinces us this is the way to go. If he won’t install it we may schedule an appointment with you.
Anyway, for now some clarification:
1. Should we order the system(s)from you including the fi, adapter plate, pumps and hoses?
2. Your May 6 blog mentions the “floor” may need to raised to accommodate the fi system including the adapter plate. I have reread your blogs (and maybe I missed it) and does the dog house door need to be raised?
