Recently had the fuel hose on the drivers side lowered a little to help with fueling. Before it was almost impossible to fuel on the drivers side as there was not enough drop in the fuel line and the foaming would keep cutting off the pump. Fueling much better now but the generator won't start. I can hear it making a clicking sound but doesn't turn over. I don't think it's getting fuel. Could it have lost it's prime? Never a problem before. Taking it back into the shop tomorrow but thought someone might have a suggestion for what to look for.

Thanks for all your help. Here is what I know. I had not tried to start the generator since I picked up the MH Saturday and the generator probably hadn't been started in a couple of weeks. However, I did check both the house and chassis batteries and all were fully charged. Normally I park the MH in back of our home but for the last couple of days it's been parked in our drive which slopes nose down. The front of the MH would be lower than the rear. I have since moved the MH to a level spot, pressed the aux start, held it down and then pressed the gen start. It started in a few seconds. I checked and the battery charger was off. Don't know why it was off but turned it back on. I let the gen run with both ACs on for about an hour. Turned everything off and shut down the generator. Waited a couple of minutes and the generator started with no problem. I'll let it set overnight and check it again in the morning. At this point it is not plugged into shore power but will be soon.
Could it be that when re-positioning the fuel line that the generator lost fuel and then by trying to start it with the MH not level caused the problem? I would think first that it was the batteries but they were charged. Guess tomorrow will tell.
