I used RDS gravity feed fitting on last truck, it worked perfectly. I switched to Airtex pump on this one, just wanted to feed faster. And, besides I just wanted to hook this one up differently. The Wix 33123 has a petcock in the bottom for draining, real handy to check for contamination.

I assume you had from the tank

shutoff valve
thru bed
filter in
filter out
the RDS inline kit.

where did you mount the filter base?

I used heavy aluminum to make brackets for all the components and mounted all to the outside of the left frame rail, drivers side. The fuel comes out the top of the aux tank, thru the bed, in to the 12 volt valve, then the Airtex pump and finally thru the Wix filter/separator and into the aft tank. The electrics are hooked to upfitter swithch #3. The Autometer fuel gauge sits in left corner of dash.

Sorry about that, that was really simple. Fuel out the bottom of tank all the way back to the gravity feed valve at the stock tank. That was all there was to it.

Wondering if anyone has set up an aux tank that doesn't have a fill spot inside the bed of truck? I've been pondering the idea of an aux pump that could pump fuel from the main to the aux tank. When I add a topper on the truck, I won't have access to the fill spout.

I think your best option is a Titan replacement tank, 50 gal or more if you have a long bed, tank replaces the stock tank under the truck. It's spendy and installing the fill hose is critical for keeping water out, but solves your issue.

Search "Titan tank" in the SD forum and read up.

Check out "The Fuel Box" @ Auxiliary - Transfer Tanks + Toolbox Combos The Fuelbox

These are great Aux fuel tanks with a toolbox to boot. They have many different configurations. I installed a 60gal Aux tank with transfer pump in my 2015 F-250 for 1900 installed. The toolbox is only 6" deep, good enough for hand tools. I will post pics if anyone wants.

Going to bring this back from the dead a little.

Has anyone mounted a truck tank under an excursion? I have a few ideas on how I want to do it, but I don't think that drilling into the structure is something I'd want to do.

So instead I am thinking that I will use the existing in-tank pump to just transfer to my main tank. Then worst comes to it I can run that as the main with a little work. But how to fill it? I'd rather not cut a hole in the body to add a second filler. Can I sneak a second filler neck in the same fill-er-up hole as I use now? Is there a way to just split the one fill hose and let gravity equalize them both?
