I want to remove the generator from my RV. I am looking for the proper way to pinch off the fuel line running to it.
I have an old generator in our 96 Winnebago Adventurer. The generator has trouble maintaining 60Hz and stable voltage. I want to either replace it(most likely) or try my hand at fixing it more. Fixing it in place is a pain because of poor access and visibility to see what you are doing. The generator has a feed line coming from the RV's gasoline tank. If I want to remove the generator I need some way of pinching off the fuel line. The fuel line emerges from somewhere in the vicinity of where the gas tank is refilled as a solid tube, then runs as a rubber hose to the generator itself for about 12".
My guess is to use some clamp on the rubber line. But my concern is that a clamp might damage the line and cause a leak.
Does anyone know how to do it right? Am I being paranoid? A permanent solution would be nice. But I will settle for a good temporary one.
Thanks in advance.
