2003 Fleetwood Excursion Engine Light

I normally start our couch at least a few times a month and we "use" our coach quite a bit. We recently when to a Medieval Festival and filled up at Pilot before we parked her. I didn't get out to start her as usual and when I did about a month later she sounded like crap. I let her warm up and watched as the "check engine" light flashed at me during the entire warm up. I shut her down but has a very difficult time starting her again. The engine turned and turned, but she almost seem to be starving for fuel. My coach has never done this before. I added some diesel additives to remove any moisture that could have accumulated because of the varied temperatures we've experience here in FL this year. That did nothing. I changed the fuel filter and that did nothing. Anyone have any suggestions to what the problem could be? I seem to have a problem with power. If I keep changing my fuel filters pretty often she runs good, but after a few 1000's miles I seem to loose power again. Now she seems like she's starving for fuel every time I try to start her....

I'd think its still a water in fuel problem. If it's a Cummins you might see if 1-800-DIESELS will talk to you. That may be only for warranty or service people but I'd try it.

I don't know how it's set up but I'd look to see if there's a fuel tank drain since that would take out what's in the bottom.

Just some thoughts.
