A melted wire is never a good thing, but it may not be the underlying problem. Hope this helps
Yes, the fuel tank was more 3/4 full and yes it gets gas from the RV tanks. Gas line is full and gas is getting to the fuel filter, filter is clean and gas flows freely. Everything was working perfectly before we found the melted wires. Oil level also full.
As I mentioned in the original post, one of the wires that melted "slightly" was to the fuel pump so the pump used to pump and now it doesn't.
No spark at the spark plugs, there was the day before, but not now. The other wire that "slightly" melted was the auto shut off.
I do have a manual and I have been searching for the solution, no luck yet.
It seems to me to be an electrical issue. I know the wires go to the control box on one end, but where does the other end go to? The was a blown fuse at the control box and it was replaced.
I will take your suggestion to disconnect the remote switch and try starting without a load.
How do you know if the control board is now bad? Is there a way to test it?
Thanks for your replies, hope to get more!
