Just like turning key off. If you don’t try to start it for s day it will run about 5 minutes. If you don’t start it for s week it will run about half hour.
RV Mechanic: Wayne, RV Mechanic replied 8 months ago

Ok. But first you should no that someone told they had the same problem and it was the cam sensor. What do you think?
RV Mechanic: Wayne, RV Mechanic replied 8 months ago

Hi Louie

Yes, I just wanted to make sure it is not a fuel issue

if that was OK, the cam sensor is next to replace
