Generator power problem

When hooked up to shore power everything works fine. Then when I hook up to Generator power (Honda 3000is) the AC will run and but all other recepticles, microwave and ceiling fan has no power. Need advice

What type of TT do you have? How are you connecting the power to the trailer? What is different about how you are feeding the shore power and genset power?

I'm guessing your Honda has only got a single phase.

I have a 2008 Sandpiper 335GRT Fifth wheel. When hooked to shore power I am using a 50A to 30A adapter to 30amp breaker, when hooked to generator I am using a 50A to 30A twist lock to 30A generator recepticle. What gets me is I have a 1999 Coachman fifth wheel with 50A service and using the same adapter to generator, powers all AC, 120v outlets and microwave... Both have a single AC unit
