HELP! We are stuck!
« on: August 24, 2017, 09:47:22 PM »
So we drove our RV off the lot only to find that it is leaking what looks like gas and oil and the shop is now closed. We found that it is this piece that is the source, but we have no idea what it is or how to fix it. It is on the right side of the tank. Does anyone know what we should do to fix it? It is a 1989 spirit itasca. I added some photos for reference.
Thank you xx

That's a fuel pressure regulator. If it is indeed the source of the leak, and it's not just being leaked onto by something else, that's a fuel leak. It looks new. Maybe just needs the fittings tightened? Or maybe this new replacement regulator didn't fix the leak it was replaced to fix?

Holley 12-803 regulator picture attached....

Where are you at? Maybe someone close by that could help in some way.

Welcome! I hope you realize you have most likely bought yourselves a 'project' with a 28 year-old RV. Nothing else to add to what enored said.

Make sure to place a pan/bucket under that with some kitty litter or sand so that it doesn't get into the ground.

We found a way to temporarily mend it with a poxy so we could get it to a mechanic. It was an eventful night haha. Thanks again for all the help.
