    My first thoughts: Complete annual maint: (Oil/filter/plugs), check coolant and SC, as well as hoses/clamps. Charge battery (now), then check to make sure it's holding a charge. Finally, check your fuses. Really basic stuff. Good luck and welcome to the 'hulk.

    I would drain gas and replace as well.

    one thing i recommend on any engine that has sat for a long time without running, is crank it over for about 10 seconds without starting it.
    this will help lube everything and prime the oil pump.. just hold the throttle to full when cranking..
