Ford E-450 Class-C Fuel tank issues
On our first long trip in our Granite Ridge, we got stranded in DFW.
Root cause: Fuel pump failure. I know more than I ever wanted to know about the E-450 electrical systems as pertains to the fuel pump.
The electrical system was fine, but the fuel pump was dead.
The motorhome has 23k miles on it and a fresh fuel filter.
The cost to replace the fuel pump, minus tow and other fees is about $1000, assuming you can find a place that is large enough to take an RV. We found that 1 in 6 Ford dealers in the DFW area would even look at it.
When they pulled our tank, apparently nuts / studs holding on the fuel pump assembly snapped. That necessitated a new fuel tank. Ford quoted me $3500 for the new fuel tank (part only).
This later decreased to $2000 for the fuel tank.
Out the door, more than 2 weeks later - $3600 for a new tank and pump.
Plus another $750 for a rental SUV to get me out of the area. Add hotel costs... Probably closer to $5000 all in.
