Need HELP!

I just changed my hazard flasher which involved pulling the dash back a few inches to get to it in all the mess of wires behind the gauges. I put it back and checked that all was working on dash, I started it up and it idled for a few minutes then it sounded like it was running out of fuel and died. It turns over good and sounds like it could start but won't. I have a 2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor with a Cat diesel. Is there anything that would cut fuel supply behind dash or is it more of a coincidence and something else?
I just brought it home from Storage and run great!
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like you may of pulled a wire loose or worse. look for a loose wire somewhere. Very carefully check the ignition switch. look at all connections under dash. especially where ever a wire is spliced. A cat needs fuel to run. If you can get to it check your fuel pump. does it have power? Safe travels.... ed

The strange thing is it was running fine and just died out. I talked to freightliner and they said if it's turning over there is nothing I could have done behind dash to cause it.

Well after priming it and charging up the batteries I let sit for a day and it fired up! It's been running prefect for over an hour, have no idea why it died!

Could the batteries have been so low that the ignition(run) solenoid dropped out? Do you have good alternator output?

Glad you got it going.
