2000 7.3 Won't start

Hi folks:

I have a 2000 F350, DRW, 7.3 with ~ 80K miles. It's used exclusively for hauling a large lance camper and my telescopes to dark sky sites. The truck is steady Eddy and never gives me any grief, never fails to start, etc.... Until now.

I went to pick the truck up from the RV storage lot and it fails to start. It's got 3/4 tank of fuel, and the batteries are new this spring. The truck turns over easily and with fast cranking but it fails to start or catch. The temp was about 70.

I had it out two weeks ago with no issues. Nothings changed during or since my last outing. My most recent change was new batteries about two months ago.

Where should I start looking?


Edit: Oops, this should be in the 1999 n up 7.3 forum. Sorry!
