Thor Four Winds Fuel Pump Issue

We have a 2015 Four Winds that will not start. Battery is new and has plenty of cranking power and thereís fuel in the tank. We had to tow it to a repair shop for $250. It is on a Chevy chassis and the warranty expired in March. Anyone else have this issue? Could it be something other than the fuel pump?

chevy chassis

i have a chevy chassis 6.0 gas, used in other than rv application, they are very reliable, other than a battery i can not remember a no start condition, but it does like to blow fuses at the worst time, so learn where the fuse boxes are and carry plenty of spares and a small needle nose pliers to get them out, the fuse info given by chevy is not very good, so sometimes you have to pull them all to find the bad one.

also change oil to 10-40 min, 20-50 if going out west in hot weather, otherwise you can have oil foaming under heavy load.

i would put a battery disconnect on it, the chevy chassis does have a slight power drain somewhere, it gets worse as time goes on.

Thanks. Just thought of something else

Thanks, Captmetal. I just remembered that the "Tighten Gas Cap" warning was coming on frequently, so I bought a new gas cap from Chevy and installed it, however, I still get the warning occasionally. Could it be a problem with the emission system that is causing the fuel to not get to the engine?
