Good afternoon. I have a Cat 5500 that won't start. Only a month old, been changing oil regularly and gas is full and we only use it 3 hours a night (in the hurricane hit Virgin Islands). Now the engine just won't catch. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

RP 5500. Where would I find the serial number?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Found it! sN isR300-VC1706004829
