Do you know if the generator was checked with a load bank connected (was it checked by onan or dealer). Was the frequency output also checked?

This sounds like the relay dropping out due to low voltage. Some relays are fairly sensitive to voltage.

This may be a long shot, but...
Typically, each A/C unit runs off a different 50 Amp leg. If someone miswired it, they may share the one leg, which will usually work when you have shore power, but with only 30 amps from gen, will probably fail.
If you can get them both running, switch off one breaker at the gen. One should quit. If both do or neither does, you've found the problem.

Dijoeboss, you need to watch out doing what you have done. If you forget and plug in shore power you may damage the inverter in the generator.

I won't forget.... This is an issue I've been dealing with for 3 years.

I have found that keeping the oil level completely full helps that. If mine is low on oil just a little bit I have that issue.

I was thinking the same thing.

I think I'd put a big ole tag on the blades of the shore power plug to remind me to remove the jumpers before plugging it in, just in case you get in a hurry, or in case someone besides you happens by and wants to do you a favor. Or in the event something happens and someone else has to make or break camp for you.
