Sounds like transfer switch is shot. I find mine getting worse with every use. I will be calling them.

AC shuts off when on generator

What you are describing is the transfer switch trying to reengage (A thumping sound). Others on this forum are starting to post they are having the same issue. It seems to be pointing to the transfer switch "dropping out". Of course it will not re-engage until the AC's are turned off.
The reason the switch is cutting out is because of the heavy power draw from one of the AC's, though it should not cut out.
My first guess would be the transfer switch, after that the generator. In rare cases it could be the AC units compressor being bad.
It should still be under warranty so unfortunately I would insist on them fixing it.
By the way, you won't need to check to see if you are getting 110 volt because you will not have 110 volt since the switch is what sends powers those items.
The transfer switch is the device that "switches power" from the shore power cord or the generator to the coach.
Keep us posted when you get it fixed.

Generator Issue?

Exact issue both of you are having. So far, FR has punted on the issue. Bayouownbeer, I'd be interested in hearing the response from Progressive.

Just got off the phone with progressive. They have a updated board that plugs into the generator contact that is suppose solve the issue. They ship them out for free. I left the service guy a message I believe his name is Dennis and he called me back within the hour. This is there number 269.781.4241

I replaced my transfer switch with a Go Power TS50 and it did the same thing, I'm willing to try their update, but not hopeful it solves it.
