I was told that it could be the fuel pump, not sure how to check it except to listen for it?
Of course there is no manual. They have not used it in almost 4 years and it's been sitting. Really not sure what to do and in what order to do it. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Your on the right track for a preliminary check, this great ethanol gas does not mix very well with long periods of storage.

There is a schrader valve (looks like a tire valve) in the fuel rail on top of the engine you can check for fuel pressure, push the valve stem in after turning the key on then off if it works you'll get a big shot of gas coming out of it so only push it in then release it as fast as you can. Might help to have a rag or paper towel around it to keep the spray contained.

Welcome to the Forum and sorry to hear about your troubles. Can I assume that you have checked the normal things first - enough gas, batteries are nor dead, starter, and fuel filter?
If so, my only suggestion is to contact a mobile RV service or have it towed to an authorized dealer for service/repair.

If it is the fuel pump, hopefully someone can help with replacing.

Best of luck.

Your going to get a lot of people welcoming you to site on this thread with some help. Try posting your question over on motorhome sit for more answers on specific questions.

Oh yea'a Welcome!

DW ask if you checked the oil, but she ask that regardless of the mechanical issue! lol

Thank you, this is something we have not tried yet. Is there a filter beyong that point to check? If we get gas then the pump is ok? What do we check after we either get gas or do not get gas? As far as the gas that is in the tank, do we empty that and replace it along with the fuel filters? We would like to try and get it running and home without a huge towing and repair bill. :/ What other tune up things should we do that may help?

If you don't get gas or very little, I would check the fuel filter. If you are getting gas, then I would suspect a fault in the ignition system like the distributor for a starting point.

Try a can of this, it worked well for me on a pressure washer engine that hadn't been run for five years and was stored with gas in it!
