As I stated earlier, check the vent and fuel lines going to the genarator when the slides are out and are in. The slides or somthing that moves with them could be crimping the lines when in.

Although I cant remember any fuel lines or lines for venting in the area of the slides it is worth checking. While I am at it I think I will also check the area of the steps.

Just replace the fuel cap. That is your problem are else the genset would not have stayed running.

I would assume the fuel cap is a Freightliner part? Probably need vin no. ? This unit has dual fill, should both caps be replaced?

A word of caution: On our Newmars they use a non-vented cap, replacing them with vented (or locking) caps creates leaks at the cap. Been there and did that!
