Exclamation Rear fuel pump fuse

There is no voltage to the rear fuel pump when the key is on. I'm thinking it may be a fuse. Can someone tell me where to look for this fuse?

I was stuck on the side of the road for a couple of hours due to this problem, then coachnet towed me to a small shop who knows nothing about MHs. He's going to look at it some more tomorrow... I sure would like it to be a fuse.

There may by an oil pressure permit switch on the engine (mine is located at the streetside front of the engine, just above the oil pan, adjacent to the oil pressure sending switch).

The fuel pump was installed by Airstream, so the mechanic will find no reference to it in the Chevy literature.

There (supposedly) has to be oil pressure in order for the pump to run, but on mine (when I first purchased it) it would run when the ignition switch was turned to the "on" position.

Be sure to change all of the fuel filters - one just before the electric pump, one in the area of the steps/battery box, and one internal to the carburetor.

Thanks,

Unfortunately I'm under the weather and not up to crawling around under the MH. I will pass this infomation on to the mechanic. He looked at all of the filters and said they were very clean.
