Customer Question

I have a 5500 marquis gold installed in my 2007 fleet wood. Has always started right up, but now cranks, has fuel, but will not run. Thoughts on what I could check? Drained the fuel bowl and when cranking, it refilled again, so seems to be getting fuel.

How long has it been sitting since you ran it last? Any fuel treatment in the fuel?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I live near Calgary, Alberta, so it's not used in the winter. I started it once through the winter, and it is stored inside a heated garage. No, I haven't added any fuel treatment, but did just fill the motor home and it took about 200 + litres.

Today's gas goes bad very quickly. You may have to clean the carb in order to get this to run correctly. Or at least take the float bowl off and inspect it.
