Default Gen Help needed at WOG

FREE Steak Dinners for whoever is willing to TEACH me how to diagnose why my generator does not run! It ran fine from Jacksonville, FL to Dallas, TX, but then decided to not run. Unfortunately I still have to work for a living and didn't have the time to try the various steps mentioned on WOG. Also, since I program computers, I don't feel comfortable testing/jumping some of the connectors mentioned. Nor do I know where to find them.
You know the old saying, give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and he will always have something to eat.
I really want to learn how to care for my Bird.
My wife, the cook in the family, may be late for WOG, so we will need to go to a restaurant to eat. I am NOT a cook either.
I will be coming up to WOG on Sunday and will be in space 201 if anyone is willing to take this task on!
Thanks in advance.

Don't feel bad Greg. I got help too. Sitting here right now in the Wal-Mart Campground listening to my genny purrrrr like a kitten. I'm also knocking on wood as I say that I believe I have already bee forward about bragging too much. Don't want to press my luck. I'll jump in and help as much as I can. Don't know how much help it will be but we'll find out.

Since you will be at WOG my suggestion would be to open your generator compartment and put out a few tools. Stand in front and scratch your head. Within minutes there should be about 10 people show up.

Thanks for the advice!

The tools don't have to be anything special.
A butter knife and some duct tape should do the trick.

Guaranteed to work !

What a group of guys here at WOG!
Thanks so much for getting it running.
For the record it needed a new fuel pump.
