same thing.

Try to get hold of a meter that can measure the current on that circuit to determine if it is actually a high load or just a bad generator. This is always a handy item to have in an RV, It can save a lot of headaches and guess work.

x2, same thing.

Turn all your 120v circuits off, hook up the genny, and turn on circuits one at a time. This should help identify the offending circuit.

I think it's got something to do with the IQ sensing a ground issue. Contact Generac more info? In the mean time get one of these or equivalent. You'll never regret it. It measure AC/DC amps, volts, temp etc..

That's a strange problem but it's not the IQ. The IQ is a very nice little unit, don't give up on it. I've heard of grounding issues with other generator/ TT combinations. Someone more knowledgeable than I may be able to shed some light. With an ammeter, you can definitely rule out issues.

The iQ should run just about everything but the AC and Microwave at sea level. With a few simple mods, you make crank the 13.5 BTU AC. Some folks are running them with 2000 watt units. A hard start capacitor and time delay on the fan will knock off about 10 amps of the starting surge. But that's after you figure out your immediate issue.
