Lines are rubber coming out of the tank. About 18-24 inches long. There should be three, one fuel, one fuel return and one for the genset.

I for one will not wait until something breaks and leaves me on the side of the road with my family in the middle of nowhere.
Far better to keep up with maint. and since I do so, I have never been stranded.

How about for a water pump and clutch fan with less than 60k on them and no issues?

The generator one I did just about 6mos ago. Used Gates Barricade hose. I'll need to check the other. May need to wait for the tank level to drop it's full now.

With hoses I believe in preventitave maintenance

With water pumps I'm a firm believer in replacing that which is broke, but if it's not broke don't fix it.


Home is where I park it.

Your engine fuel hoses are designed for E10. If ya can't find the problem, blame E10. I've been using Oreilly thermal fan clutches on my customers and my MH for years with out a problem. There is a Oreilly fan clutch on my 528 stroker MH engine, and it cools properly. Aftermarket fan clutches got a bad rap when DIYs purchased non-thermal clutches to replace their OEM thermal fan clutch.

I'd be more worried about the brakes than the cooling.

Brake work complete already (08-2016).

Replaced front rotors (Raybestos), pads (Centric ceramic), master cylinder (Raybestos). Removed the drums on the rears and clean everything up real well. Linings were still ~95%. Re-packed front & rear bearings as well. System filled flushed and filled with new fluid as well.

Assuming you have hydraulic brakes all your rubber flex lines are well past their service life and should be replaced and system bled completely. Do you have the auto brake system? That is another can of worms all on its own! Dave
