2005 Montana sv6 has the 3.5 crank no start

Hey everyone, can't find anything online or even a service manual for this thing so hoping to find someone with a solved experience simular to mine, I added my jerrycans that I just purchased for my riding lawn mower/ quad as I didn't want it sitting over a couple weeks and weather has went to shit here, my van then stalled after starting it, running inside to grab my lunch and when I went to start it back up it cranks but does not start, even after letting it sit for a day not even a single fire just cranks, fuel pump is engaging and I have spark at a cylinder no codes where thrown,

Keep in mind that the engine isn't even slightly catching and I still had over a quarter tank when I added the jerrycans, so didn't run dry..

are you sure about the contents of the jerry cans?
are the cans metal or plastic and how old?
remove the fuel filter and blow through it to see if it is clogged.

Newer plastic jerry can, and yeah the fuel was should have been good.. my first Montana but my understanding that there isn't a filter besides a sock on pump assembly, I plan on dropping the tank to be sure fuels not the issue, but wouldn't it at least sputter?

Before dropping the tank do a fuel pressure test.
