New Winnebago Tribute won't start

My wife and I bought a 2015 Winnebago Tribute a month ago. We are brand new to RVing, and this is our 3rd trip out. We set up camp at Tyler State Park on Christmas day and decided to move sites the next day. We broke down camp and started the coach. It cranked and ran for about 5 seconds before dying. It hasn't started since. It will turn over, but won't start. Sounds like it's not getting fuel, but we aren't sure. We looked for an inertia switch, but we've read there isn't one in the ford chassis anymore. We've looked at fuses (that we can find), and all seem well. Any ideas out there? As of now, it looks like our rig will have to be towed on Friday, and we will have to rent a car to get home to Houston. Any ideas would be much appreciated! The tribute has the 2014 ford chassis (gas).

I have a diesel so can't really help but I suggest that you post on the Winnebago owners forum on here. That might get you quicker help from a Winnie owner who might have some experience.

We thought of that... Maybe not enough gas even with a quarter of a tank. So my brother in law took me to get 5 gallons of gas. Put it in this morning. Still nothing
