Check that the drain on the bottom of the fuel water separator is tight. If it is loose it will suck air and cause the motor to die.

Change the fuel filter/s........sounds like it is running out of fuel.
(When were they changed last?)

I have been in your shoes, We through a rod and trashed the engine. Search for my thread it has some good information if you need an engine swap out. Hope that doesn't happen to anyone.

My daughter was on her way to school one day (Wayne State University) when suddenly all the warning lights flashed and the car died.. now I know this is a car, not a motor home,but a gas engine, more or less, is a gas engine.

She called me, I called AAA and the local GM store. Responded and strung triangles,,got a complement from the Tow driver on that (Hey, I read the book... What Every Commercial Driver Must Know, The chapter on Triangles and Flares)

Tow driver took car to dealer.. I took Darling Daughter to College.

They replaced the wiring harness She had bad grounds... (Thankfully I had insurance on that kind of thing).

Oh, side note: Carry triangles (I have 'em in my towed) and the book I mentioned above.. IT was free from DMV.

Could be alternator problem. Start you generator. This will supply voltage to your batteries and may run your ignition system.

I assume that you have a diesel not gas, so the only reason diesels will not run is lack of fuel. If it cranks over and will not start it is a fuel problem not anything to do with the alternator, if your mechanic is indicating alternator, better get another mechanic! Most times it is the engine fuel system sucking air,once air gets into the injection system it is hard to purge it out. Check one fuel filter at a time, and then cycle the ignition key from off to on 10-20 times (do not start) check fuel supply at the injection pump, then try and start.

Wife,
This is not to chastise you. It's only meant to be informative. Whenever you ask for assistance on here, or, any other RV forum that you may decide to belong to, it's good to post a well-rounded description of your coach, either along with your question or, as a signature below your question that will appear each and every time you post a question, without your doing it manually. As has been stated, if folks know what kind of coach, type and size of engine, transmission etc., they'll be better equipped to try and accurately help you. Many may have the same kind of coach may have experienced your same possible issue and, could quite possibly have the correct remedy for your given situation. But, if they don't see or read the specs on your coach, they don't know how to accurately answer and, all they can do is guess.

Now, as far as your coach is concerned, as has been asked, are you sure it's a gas unit? I'm not an expert on Monacos but, all I've ever seen or heard of in that Brand and model is a diesel unit. But, you should know so, if you say it's gas, then it must be gas.

If so, can say if any attempts to isolate whether it's fuel or ignition problems? That is, has anyone (your husband or, a roadside mechanic) done a spark check to see if it's ignition related? Or, if it's a fuel injected gas unit, has anyone attempted to spray any starter fluid in the intake side to just see if it will light-off using that method. If it does, then you've got a fuel problem. So, again, just trying to be helpful here with at least some info.
Scott

Gasoline in a diesel fuel tank would most likely put you on the shoulder of the road...depending on the concentration...sooner or later. At least it's not as bad as an airport re-fueling service putting jet fuel in a twin engine piston aircraft. That never ends well. Hopefully the OP will let us know what happened to their DP.
