No. I have been on there for 8 years and have answered over 20,000 questions. How old is the fuel in the tank?

It will start up for 3 seconds then shut off
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

It may be the fuel pump is going out. I would have the rail pressure checked and see. Is this a Ford V-10 power plant?

No it is a V8. 454 cu in chevy on work horse chassis
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
2016 filter change
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

I think checking the fuel pressure at the rail would be the next step and rule out a fuel supply issue.

Question if the units generator supplies fuel to the gym I mean it runs off of the same tank do they use the same fuel pump number two I took out the fuel relay switch and then the engine just turned over but when I put it back in its started for three seconds then stopped again like clockwork
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Could this be a TPS issue
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 11 months ago

N​o real way to know without some testing. Guessing isn't a good idea. Start with the fuel pressure first and rule that out.
