Buying a Jayco 294fl. 95 model. It's been plugged in, but not started for about 4 years. I've tried to search but couldn't get results. What do I need to do before starting?

The worse case senerial is the corn syrup in todays fuel blend may have eaten up your fuel pump rubber membrane sitting that long...

Crank away I guess...

You might want to carefully check under the hood for critter nesting, including in the air filter. Look for degrading on the hoses and belts. Check all the fluid levels, except the A/T, which will have to be up to temp. And ditto on the fuel. If it smells like varnish, don't try to fire her up. Drain it, and replace with fresh fuel. It doesn't take but several months for todays gas to go south. After all that, carefully check that the brakes work properly.
