Temp gauge on my l2800 barley moves then stops and stays in the same spot and fuel guage stuck on full. Both gauges started malfunctioning at about the same time. What should I check to find the problem?

Temp gauge on my l2800 barley moves then stops and stays in the same spot. Any advice?
Get a infrared thermometer....they are cheap...less than 20 bucks.

Check lots of places, it will tell you far better than the gauge

Most likely you have lost a ground connection, there will be a whole group of wires on the connection, remove it and clean the connections.
The other issue could be a bad connection to the back of the instrument cluster.
