As stated by others, the fuel pump should look clean, painted finish. The salt water from the raw water impeller will drip/pour over the fuel pump if preventative steps are not taken. If you do not see an active leak or evidence thereof, this would most likely explain the issue. We had the same issue when we purchased ours due to previous “mechanic’s” work. I have carefully cleaned it as best as possible and applied corrosionX to try to control the rust. (A coat of rust preventer, primer and paint may not be a bad idea).
I have also purchased a spare fuel pump, just in case.

We have noticed our ONAN generator fuel pump is looking quite rusty.
Is it meant to deteriorate this way over time?
if not, do you know what might be the cause?
Thanks for your advice,
