96 Chevy 454 TBI, Damon Motorhome won't start Bob 8-9-16  
Engine ran great, shut it off, 2 months later won't start. I replaced the distributor cap/rotor and ignition module checked out fine. I've look the wiring over close but no evidence of a critter eating the wire. Looking for ideas,

So we need to do basics.

Spark, you didn't say you did a basic sparkplug on the valve cover test.
Fuel, Best checked by testing fuel pressure under the hood while cranking.
Is the air cleaner blocked or plugged. (Critters)
Is the tail, pipe, muffler etc plugged? Critters or vandals.

Finally if the computer is not waking up or is missing an input you are out of business. Depending on the chassis, 96 might be to old for OBDII, you need to get some one to plug in and see if it working.
