Generator not fully powering everything

For some reason the generator is not powering the rear AC or the microwave. The inside breaker is fine and one if the two 30 amp breakers on the gen is tripped and won't reset. Everything works great on shore power. Any suggestions?

With the generator off and no shore power will the generator break reset?
Then the breaker is bad on the generator.

The breaker will not reset even when everything is off. Do you know where to get that breaker. Camping world?

Make sure the electric water heater is turned off. If this is on when we run off generator only it will trip the breaker for the rear a/c and micro. Aparrently on same circuit. Run water heater on gas when dry camp. If not that need breaker.

E-Bay has a jillion RV breakers at pretty fair prices.

I am having the same problem. Just picked up our 2015 351DS on Friday and when we have the generator on we can't use both a/c units. I was thinking that the fridge was pulling too much power so I turned it off (not working right now, going in for service today). That didn't help though.

Just checked, not the water heater. Can't get the cover off the generator so I will have service look when we take it in.

Swap the circuit breakers around. If the problem moves to the other side then you have a bad CB.

Pull the cover from the top. It snaps in place.
