Ok, I have a 2006 Thor 277 Vortex toy hauler. My generator recently stopped running and I discovered that it was not getting any gas. I hooked a 3 foot fuel line up to the fuel pump on my onan 4000 generator and put it in a gas can. The generator ran just fine. So this means my fuel line is clogged or something. Next I took the tank off the toy hauler and discovered that the clog seems to be in a 90 degree fitting on the top of the tank where my fuel line hooks up. I need information on this fitting, if I take it off will something drop inside my tank? Is there another fuel filter hooked to the fitting inside my tank or is there just an open line? Can I take part of the fitting off and check the line inside the tank?

I have forgotten how to post images.....little help please?

Disconnect the fuel line at the carb and use compressed air to blow out the line.

I believe that fitting at the top of the tank is a one way check valve to keep the gas from bleeding back to the tank. You should be OK to remove it and there should be a pick up tube attached that goes to the bottom of the tank.

Tried that, no luck, I have the tank off and I hooked the air compressor up to the 90 degree fitting and no air will pass through.

That makes sense, I just don’t want to drop anything in the tank. I

I believe that most Toy Hauler gas tanks (mine included) have the generator fuel pickup rigged so that the generator runs out fuel when the gas level drops to 1/4 full. This makes sense with a motor-home. They don't want the generator to run the tank dry, leaving the motor-home out-of-gas and unable to drive to a gas station. It makes no sense for a travel-trailer, like mine, to have this feature. However, I think ALL toy-hauler rigs use the same fuel tank design. That way, the manufacturers don't have to stock two different types of fuel tanks on the assembly line.
