    Fuel pump operation?

    Ok Im trying to transfer fuel to the generator tank via other tank.. Its getting stormy around here and only gonna get worse so Id like to have the generator as backup if the electric goes out at the campground. I opened up the door and flipped the switch and nothing happened.. I didnt hear anything and obviously no fuel was transfered. Is there a particular sequence to start the fuel pump.? I looked in our manuals and there wasnt anything for the station.

    Did you turn on the timer inside first?

    Do you have a transfer pump or do you need to use the nozzle to transfer from the main tank to the genset tank?

    There is a button on the control panel inside you Cyclone, near the fuel gauge. It activates a timer for the pump for 15 min then shuts off. Once you push the button, a red LED illuminates and you can start the pump.

    I've seen quite a number of 3 axle toy haulers being pulled by 3/4 ton SRW trucks down here in the south. I moved up to a DRW Super Duty to pull my 2 axle 3110 and couldn't be happier, or more relaxed/relieved.
