Default Gen start issue

My new 2018 P-W Sprinter RV, has a Gen start problem.(8 hrs on it)
When the Gen has not run, say for 4-8 hrs /overnight, it is very difficult to start, it starts and immediately stops.
One has to keep doing this for half dozen times or more, till it finally starts, and keeps running, once it has been running it start normal at all times.
You can start it all day and it works fine, it appears to LP fuel problem, but not anything that is notable .
I've been trouble shooting it for month now, talked too P-W, Spryder (touch pad group) , Cummins.
It is of still under warranty , but who or which group will take responsibility for it.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue?
Any heads up would be appreciated .

Biggest problem is have seen associated with your problem narrative is gumming up of the safety & flow valve (FCV), Both are upstream of the generator,often tank mounted or poor valve solenoid operation of the safety cut out if fitted.
