Unburned gasoline fumes around Axis

We are trying to leave on a trip and are concerned that there is a raw gasoline smell when the Ford engine is on.

It is definitely not coming from the generator. Don't see anything dripping!!

Have any other Axis or Vegas owners experienced this when the engine is running or has just been running? This appears to be a new problem for us! Any ideas?

Hate to cancel our trip but want to stay safe!!!

Update: Trip cancelled unless we can get some service quicker than I expect. We have a leak in the fuel line just forward of the back axle on the inside left chassis rail.

Any idea whether that might be covered by Ford, or are we into our extended warranty on our 21 month old coach?

Only way to know for sure is to contact Ford and ask.

Wow, that is scary! If you can't find the source, you need to get a friend or a RV tech to check it out for you. If it's not the fuel line to the generator, that leaves the fuel line to the engine. Follow your nose!

A friend with another brand Class C had loose screws in the frame around the gas filler cap. His fill tube was loose and the check engine light came on. He's replacing the screws with bolts. Be sure to check your filler tube.

It is one of the feed lines from the fuel tank to the engine! No bigger diameter than a finger! Steady drip!! Am thinking our independent mechanic could fix a lot quicker than Ford. Of course that would be on our nickel. Just really don't want to get into leaving the coach with Ford for weeks, only to discover they don't think it's their problem!!
