Has it ever worked?

May not be politically correct, but can you try siphoning it through the hose? See any kinks?

Fuel line may be kinked off. Fuel filter stopped up. Bad fuel pump.

Is there a separate shut off valve between the tank and generator?

Check the fuel line brackets that the fuel line runs thru going back to the tank, mine were smashing off the fuel line.

If it never worked, I would guess the line is kinked. The factory guys love pulling zip ties really tight without looking at what is getting kinked. My black tank flush (water) line was bent 180 degrees and tie wrapped in place tight.
