Hauler fuel tank help

Short story quick. I need help. New used toy hauler. Single gas tank that feeds the genset fine and dandy. Gas pump for toys would not work. Sanded the pump gears and it would turn at least, but no gas coming out. Dropped the gas tank and took off the feed nozzle to the pump. Found that there was a check ball and spring in the aluminum nozzle that was stuck in the closed position. I think it was an emissions thing and I think it was keeping the gas from coming to the pump. Pushed out the check ball and put everything back together. Still no gas. Filed the gears down again to get them to turn. Sounds like it's pumping fine, but nothing is still coming out. Weird thing is that when the pump is going, and the gas cap is on the tank, then the pump is taking the air out of the tank. You can hear it pop and compress as a vacuum is created in the tank. Still nothing coming out of the pump. Any advice? My thoughts are that the pickup tube for the gas pump might have came off and maybe the vent tube is clogged? I"m kinda lost till I have time to drop the tank again. Anyone had this issue too? Mav

RE: Toy Hauler Ramp Door defective

Friend has a '12 Raptor and he has the same issue with the crease down the middle. He only loads a RZR though. Dealer said not to worry about it. Mav

RE: Water heater issue..Suburban SW10DE DSI

Update. Ohmed out the element and it was good at 10.6 ohms. Took everything appart and cleaned what I could. Double checked the resets and all the connections. I can hear the power when the switch is on, so we are ongoing testing for the electric heat today. I discovered that water heater is on a set of switches that it shouldn't be. The not only is there the CB on the water heater, and in the CB panel, the electic is once again on a big 120v lighted swtich. This is usually reserved for the gas function of the water heater from my experiance. I also found that the gas funtion of the water heater is on a tiny lighted switch labled for the tank heaters. Man this thing is wired backwards. I at least got the hot water going off the gas yesterday and all seems to work fine there. I am having them shut off the gas portion today and see if the electic can maintain the heat after everything was cleaned and reset. Thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully we got this knocked out. Mav

Thanks. I checked the resets yesterday and they did not appear tripped. Will check again today. Mav

RE: Water heater issue..Suburban SW10DE DSI

I think I have the electric part figured out. I bet it is the element. The FIL plugged it in for a few hours to charge the batteries before they brought it down from Wyoming. It was winterized and the switch was on when it got down here. Now I just have to swap it out and fix the propane part. Mav

Water heater issue..Suburban SW10DE DSI

On my SIL's 2012 Elkridge the water heater will not work. Heater is a Suburban SW10DE DSI unit. On propane....you turn the inside switch on and it lights, but the ignitor will not attempt to spark. Propane works elseware. On electric....it gets very little(over 6 hours) or no heat. Both switches are on(outside on unit and CB in the panel). No other control that I can tell. Also all fuses seem to be good and normal. I'm going ohm out the element tonight. I'm wondering if these two issues are related or just one big coencidence? Any tips on troubleshooting? I read through all the post on here and youtube videos and not much covers the newer DSI units. Same principles apply for the gas stuff though I'm sure. Thank you, Maverick
