My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
If this unit has been sitting for over a year, it is most likely that the carb has gone bad again.
These engines can not sit - they need to be exercised regularly.

So, the cure then is to take the carberator off and clean it out . Can this be done while still mounted in the motor home?
Expert:  Hank F. replied 2 years ago.
That depends on how the genset is mounted in your coach. Sometimes you can, sometimes you can't.
