Generator shuts down when plugging in???
hi, did a bit of searching but have come up empty. anyways,
I have a brand new eastern tools 2500w inverter/gen. when plugging
in rv power cable (30>15amp connection) to the outlet, the gen immediately
shuts down, or trips the gens gfci breaker. either way, i have no power. i have
also shut off everything possible to keep load low when connecting. i have tried
small electric devices like laptop/ipod on their own plugged to the gen which have worked without problem. also, despite the shut down, i am not getting an overload indication from the generator either. things work fine when connected to shore power too.
please tell me there is an easy solution i am overlooking here, my knowledge of electricity is scant at best, thanks
