My 2001 39' Bounder is leaking fuel from the Gen I to date have been unable to find that rascal.

Where do you think it is most likely to be found?

Did you check the fuel hoses and connections? The rubber hoses can rot or wear from rubbing against something.

There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Does your generator have a single fuel filter or 2 filters? Our 2001 Adventurer originally came with 1 fuel filter at the pump, and a second screwed into the carb. Onan later eliminated the one at the carb because after it was replaced a few times the threads would often start to leak.

They came out with a fitting that would replace the filter and remain in place permanently. Later models came only with a single filter at the pump.

After checking all the hose connections I would start at the carburetor. First by checking the gasket around the fuel bowl and the gasket on the drain. next check the float to see if it has an open seam and getting fuel in it, preventing it from closing off the fuel supply.
