"Don't work" how? Won't start, no output?  

I had an old Class C that had a generator I it but it would never start. I took it to an RV  repairman who had it for almost two weeks and said he could not figure out was wrong with it. We had it for several more years then bought another one and gave the first to my son. He never took it and It set here for another four plus years before we sold it. As we were cleaning it up and getting ready to marked it I pushed the remote started button , it turned over a few times and fired right up. was a total surprise!  Hope yours wakes up and works fine soon.

Check the switch first. It's the cheapest thing to fix and most often the culprit!

Yes it works on the set I thinking may the toggle start switch may be bad it been in here since 1981

Does it work directly on the set? Check connections on the remote wiring. Lots of abuse in the compartment.
