True Story.. Friend of mine has a lovely 25+ year old Blue Bird RV.
A few years back he had issues first with his generator than with the main engine.. Called a service guy who found nothing.

Finally I pointed out the Pre-Filter (This unit has two fuel filters) and upon inspection it was covered with "Black Chunks" (Algae) and after a bottle of Algecide. VAROOM he was good to go.

Sounds like the same issue to me.. That said I'm not the diesel expert. in fact that is just about the limit of my knowledge. My brother on the other hand is an expert [emoticon]

Hopefully the algae treatment will fix you up but you may need to replace the filters a few more times. i'd carry spare(s) for now.


Home is where I park it.

Millions of miles driving my own trucks; Always carried couple sets of fuel filters, wrench, and oil jug full of clean fuel.
