Help stuck on roadside

Traveling in Missouri about 15 minutes from our campground and all of a sudden the engine quits. No indication of any issues. All was going smoothly. Now when I try to restart it seems to crank for about 3 seconds then stops, kinda like something telling it to stop.
Has anyone out there seen something like this?

Cranks for 3 seconds and stops could indicate a low battery. Perhaps an alternator issue if so. One thing you could try is to start the generator, press and hold the aux start button for a few minutes then try starting the engine. If that works, then I would leave the generator running until you reach your destination. ~CA

We do. Good Sam’s What a mess. It took them about 45 minutes to accept we had a place to go, then an 1.5 hour to “find our location”. They wouldn’t believe us when we told them. They are still trying to find us a tow.

Do you have a voltmeter along? If so, measure your starting battery voltage.

Tried a boost and didn’t work. Now at a repair center. Fingers crossed

Just got it worked on yesterday. Surprisingly ( at least to me). Evidently the bolts holding the AC compressor broke. Took the belt out and also fell and broke at least one electrical connector. I have never heard of such a thing. I am now about a 2 hour drive to it and will see and inspect in person tomorrow. Have you ( or anyone else out there) ever heard of something like this?

I was outside Cody Wyoming when that happened with my F150. Fortunately I could keep running as it didn't do any other damage on the way off the engine and onto the road. We had to hang out for a couple days in Cody which was nice and the dealer was very good to work with.

I’ve seen reports of loose bolts on undercarriages of Jayco campers, but I’m guessing this is a Ford engine and Jayco is off the hook on this one. Sorry this happened to you.

You are correct. An F-53 Ford chassis
