Onan 5500 won't start.

It ran fine earlier today and now it won't start.
I have removed the cover, primed and tried to start, to no avail. What am I missing here? Can someone help? Thanks.

Jerry,
Check your fuel line and see if it has collapsed? Also which unit do you have?

Boost Pump

Check to see what code is being thrown. Several of us with long toy haulers have had problems with gas being sucked from the back to the front. I added a boost pump that seems to have solved my problem. Here is the thread. See last post for pics.
