Our genset is same Model and spec. Coach is 2003 on 2002 chassis. And it's 31A. Very good floor plan. I can send the window sticker to help figure out what's standard and optional. Also have service and parts manuals for genset.

Locate the fuel line coming from the tank. Take it loose and blow back toward the tank. Listen for bubbling. This should verify that the line is good.
Reconnect line from tank.
Take output line from fuel pump. Energize pump with known good 12 volt DC supply to verify pump is working.
Take bowl loose from carb. Do it carefully. Verify that the float is moving.

Ditto here. We bought a 2002 Minnie that sat unused for quite a while. Same Gen. Same problem.

There is a fuel pump fuel filter assembly on the lower left under and behind the electronic control module. Our pump/filter wasn't delivering enough fuel.

Since I replaced the pump/filter, the operation has been flawless.

I learned how to do it from Youtube videos. Access is very difficult. It took me all day.

The fuel pumps (typically) are solenoid type pumps that are pulsed with 12VDC which retracts the solenoid and an opposing spring provides the fuel pressure. So, when you prime the pump, if it is working properly, you will hear the initial solenoid pulsing noise that will lessen as the spring builds up fuel pressure and there is no more solenoid movement. Clear as mud, right???

MH's that sit alot tend to have carbs on the gennys that are gummed up. Onan will sell you a new carb reasonable, or you can buy a aftermarket overhaul kit, a gallon can of a caustic dip type carb cleaner ($$) and spend a day or so removing it and tearing it down and cleaning it and reassembling and reinstalling it. Either way you are paying the piper, take your choice.

My bets on the carb.

Happy New Year! This forum is great so its the carburetor. Found a place here to order the part and install for 150.00. Glad it was not the genset, we can deal with this starting out. Hope to find more youtube videos to help me learn more.
