Shot in the dark. My 2014 FR3 30DS broke down on my first trip. I had a full water tank and a bumpy road due to construction. I pinched the fuel pump wire between some canister and the frame. Now mine just died due to blowing fuse to fuel pump. But what if yours is only intermittently shorting and not blowing fuse, only not pumping fuel for a moment. Not sure if this is a posibility, but can't hurt to check fuel pump wire.

Not FR issue!

When it began, the RV had less than 10K miles. It's quite disappointing to say the least.
I understand you say that you know it is not a FR issue BUT you here at a FR forum, I like a few others said it is a ford issue, they had the chassis and they are the ones who have the tools to fix it.
Yes it is VERY frustrating to have to deal with a problem over and over, but with all the systems in cars and trucks today it sometimes takes a lot of time to fix it.
My cousin has a 2008 American Revolution and for the first 2 yrs he owned it it left him walking a number of times, but guess what the issue had nothing to do with Fleetwood, it was the chassis company (Spartan) who had to find a fix the issue, and yes Spartan paid for all the tows and time, but still 2 yrs!
SO yes I like you get very mad but you need to go to a different dealer (and make sure they are a truck dealer, not cars) and let them work in it, it could be a big or simple issue but you need ford.

So good luck and Happy Camping

Thank you for the response. The RV has been in service at a place Ford, per our warranty, told us to take it...Rush Trucking. They did finally detect something from the GEO monitor they installed but said it was insufficient to fully identify the problem. They have ordered what they refer to as a "black box" to be installed, hopefully this week. Then we'll take it back out on the road and hope the codes or whatever show up adequately to find a permanent fix.

Top person to contact

Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, AKA federal lemon law. Although, as mentioned, each state does have its own lemon law act also.

Thsnks for the post. Yes, I have researched Ohio's Lemon Law for RVs. I am still hoping the issue can be resolved and fixed. We really like the motorhome other than this chassis problem or whatever it is. Rush Trucking, the repair shop, called today to say the data recorder came in and we're taking the rv in tomorrow for installation. Apparently it is much the same as a flight data recorder...a "black box." Sure hope this can diagnose the problem.
