Just don't buy the door at Menards. That place is a crap-hole, and their customer service is some of the worst I've ever dealt with. I'll be warrantying the door this week. Some of the glass clips were broken off when I received it and I just fixed it myself, no big deal, just a couple bucks for new clips. This past weekend we got rain that turned into ice and two of the vertical posts on the door grille filled with water and then froze and ripped open. It would appear they didn't finish the welds and water was able to get in. No more Menards for this guy... ever.

The hole

The hole is to access the fuel sending unit in the tank.

And...you do NOT want to permanently cover that access port. As sure as you do, something will go wonky with the sender and dropping the tank will be your only option.

Mine did not originally have access but I installed a hatch that is now accessible from the storage area under sofa/sleeper. Since I replaced both the fuel tank and the fill neck, adding access to the sender just made sense.


It is the rectangular area just inside where the fill neck is located.

I see Tango knows how to get his filler neck "in gear" Sorry, can't help the puns sometimes. However, it also shows how resourceful we can be. LOVE the shifter boot idea. I may actually steal that one in my builds......

You ID'd it correctly M --- It is indeed a shifter boot. I borrowed a couple of hole punches from a buddy to get the right, tight fit around both the filler neck and the vent hose. Hope it will do the job.

My next sealing challenge will be the steering shaft where it will penetrate the new firewall. Still not quite sure how to address that issue but it will likely be something similar. i.e., re-purposed scrap.

Just bought a 42 gallon h2o tank on pplmotorhomes.com. Got it for 80 bucks on sale. If anybody reads this today and needs a smokin' deal on a tank they're running a sale that ends this evening at 7pm...
