Yup you are correct I was just to lazy to go into detail what needs to be solved is the why it runs unhooked which I think is a pluming problem for which the electric pump is compensating....

What Clifford's said. You might be able to turn the  contacted washer over inside the solenoid once they arc they do. Not make good contact and will weld themselves together they can be salvaged if you're short of hundred dollar bills maybe only need one for new

correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the fuel flow through the primary filter then the engine fuel pump then the secondary filter and into the injectors and back into the fuel tank

Back in the 60's and 70's when I was trucking you could quite often find a receptical on top of phone booths (remember them?).  When really cold, just park next to a phone booth.  Most of the time I never got enough sleep for the engine to cool down though.

Mini-splits are increasingly common here for retro-fit units in the old homes we have a lot of.  When the upgrade is from a wood stove in the parlor to a mini-split you know you don't have ducts to distribute heat and cool...  When I see them I marvel at how quiet an unobtrusive they are.  Why can't a roof-top unit be as quiet?  Is that what inverter type roof ac might be?

A little off topic however I bought a "thermal plug" at HD. It looks like one of those two outlet plug you might use for Christmas lights but it only makes contact at 40*f. I put a 90W halogen bulb with a reflector in my plumbing bay.It only goes on when needed and seems to be reliable.

I added a 1500W block heater and control it with a switch located in the galley. My rig is housed in a bus barn however the structure has no heat other than a torpedo (100,000 BTU) and here at 6000 ft elevation in the Utah mountains warming up is really important during the Winter months.

Harleyman, where going to miss you in Quartzsite this year.

Suction leaks.  You can sometimes see the fluffy cream kind of cratering as it gets sucked into the leak.  Never tried it (don't use shaving cream) but heard of it.  You used to be able to use WD40 to find intake leaks on gas engines, made the engine speed up, but they changed the formulation to be less flammable.

Or you could use a timer and set it to come on 4 hours before your start time. Not so hard on your electric meter that way.

low battery voltage and amps will do it to the older Delco Starters every time

I think it was Clifford--about a year ago I had the name ;think it started with A  :: Anyway I lost it.  Was exactly what I wanted but could not find USA seller. Was hoping things have changed.       For  ones in dark about what I am referring to it would give the same benefits of the mini-split without the challenges of two separate units. I have bus system set. But looking into quiet plus heating Hvac unit for Andy's Toterhome. It is on borrowed time and noisy like roof tops.   I think it was Monaco using them on their high end Motor-home. Bob
