Pic #1 is a shot from the curb side -- the "safe" is visible just at the very top of the picture.

Pic #2 shows the filter & pump in place. The pump is a Carter "Green".

Pic #3 is just one more view.

The Pump and Filter assembly are to the rear of the Grey Water Tank and just in front of the Fuel Tank.

This is just an FYI post related to the fuel pump thread.

Yesterday, I took my 1989 370 LE to get gas. About 3 minutes after I had parked and turned off the ignition after arriving back home, I decided to turn the engine back on. It wouldn't start. It turned over but sounded gas starved. I went to the rear of the MH to see if I could hear the fuel pump operating and did not. I crawled underneath and while my wife turned the key to start I measured the voltage to the pump. Zero, zip, nada. Since I don't have a schematic of my fuse panel denoting which fuse protects which circuit, I pulled them all out one by one to try and find a blown one. As usual, the last one did the trick. There was a 30 amp circuit breaker protecting the fuel pump circuit that had gone bad. I proved the fault by installing a 30 amp fuse and the MH fired right up. I then re-installed the circuit breaker and no dice.

Today, I bought a new 30 amp circuit breaker from NAPA and installed it. Just to be sure, I re-installed the old circuit breaker to be sure it hadn't cooled and became servicable again. No luck.

Just in case anybody's interested, I have a Ford 460 on a Gillig chassis. The 30 amp circuit breaker for the fuel pump is in fuse slot designated F2 on the Gillig fuse block on my MH.

Does anyone know where I could get my hands on a schematic or diagram denoting which fuses protect which circuits relative to their fuse block position?

The Oil Pressure Switch can go Bad
I had an engine failure in Newfoundland on a Caravan. If the electric pump is not working the engine starts but has no power and will stall when you apply gas. It turned out that the oil pressure switch had failed open. We simply by-passed the switch and continued on to the ferry. By the way after about 10 years of operation all of the gas filters where clean.
