5.5 Onan generator cuts off while driving on rough road

My 5.5 Onan genset cuts off on its own if I am driving on a rough road (hard to go around these), go over a rough railroad crossing, hit a pot hole, etc. On a previous trip, one of the two 30 amp breakers would trip, but on this last trip, both breakers are still on. I am running 1 A/C, and, per FR advice due to known problems, have the vent on the A/C open, as opposed to closed which directs the cool air into the overhead ducts. I also experience what sounds like the A/C almost shutting off, but staying on, and then quickly getting back to full capacity. Any help on this issue so I can stay cool while driving?
