Sounds like a tune up is needed. Once a load is put on it, she dies. Just a guess.

Does all your 12v systems work fine without being on shore power or plugged into truck? Genny needs a good 12 volt source for the fuel pump and electronics.

X2 That would be my first guess and would be willing to put money on it. Check your battery/ies.
