1990 BOUNDER FUEL LEAK CRAIG FULMER 6-27-12  
I HAVE A 1990 FLEETWOOD BOUNDER, THERE IS AN EXTERNAL FUEL RELATED VALVE JUST NEXT TO THE FUEL TANK THAT IS NOW LEAKING, DOES ANYONE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IT IS ?
IF SO WHERE CAN I GET THE PART TO REPLACE IT ?
MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS THAT IT WAS A FUEL PUMP BUT THERE IS NO POWER TO IT.
MY SECOND THOUGHT IS THAT IT IS SOME KIND OF FUEL REGULATOR.
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

The first thing I'd like to ask is "Does your rig have 2 fuel tanks?"

If it does, then this is probably the bypass valve that connects the 2 tanks to 1 fuel line. for a 1990 model, you may be able to find a replacement part at your FLAPS, but this may be a dealer-only part. You'll need to know the make and model of the chassis your rig is using to find out.

Hope that helps!

Phil,
I own a 1988 Rockwood/Driftwood with a 454 chevy.
I have the same issue!
Mine appears to protrude from the right front side of my 60gal fuel tank: It also protrudes thru a factory hole in the frame. At that end is a threaded thing a ma jig (I agree that it is some sort of fuel regulator or possibly a pressure valve.) It looks to be 2 piece maybe a diaphragm in the middle.
The fuel leaks out of that threaded hole but only when the engine is running. It pulses the leak out the hole at the same tempo as the engine fires.
I found a single wire(cut) just above it and it appeared as though someone just snipped a single orange wire. Looks like whatever was there got hot.
Anyway, I theorize that whatever was connected to that orange wire had an end that connects to the thing a ma jig!
I know this answers no questions for you but you are the 1st I've seen in my frustration that has a very similar problem. Hope the ramblin' does you some good. Let me know!

Ugh!!!! I have a 90' bounder 34ft with the same problem, the part I have found out is a fuel pressure regulator but is a bit of a pain in the butt to replace due to the way it is mounted underneath the back right side wheel frame. You have to make sure the tank is almost empty to remove the piece and take it to a near by auto supply that can match the part as I hear that it is a pretty expensive peice if you try going straight through MF. Hope this helps!
