Restricted evaporator system for RV can allow pressure to build up in tank and force gasoline out any opening it can find. Possibly have 2 problems?? Remove gas cap from rv tank and see what happens.

Gravity feed or not doesn't matter. When parked on a angle. If the carb float is sunk or needle and seat are stuck open the fuel can syphon right out of the tank. Open up the generator remove the carb and re build it. Or take it to someone who can.

I recently had my Onan 4000w generator rebuilt by an Onan generator EXPERT (...he rebuilds them and has done dozens or maybe hundreds...). Regarding the fuel pump, I was told to be careful regarding the fuel pump replacement. He said some non-OEM makers of these fuel pump replacements do NOT have an internal shutoff valve mechanism and can result in situations where fuel can leak (...leak until your tank is at 1/4 full, so it could be a lot).

Any idea if your fuel pump is an Onan fuel pump or an aftermarket fuel pump which might have this problem?
