Doesn't make sense......
Does your gennie have idle control?
Meaning it idles till you power up something pluged into then it ramps up the rpms?
One other thing since the j/b has no ground it may not power up if it needs a ground sensing load?
Try a drill in it or something with only a two prong plug and see if that works.
Ps 30 degrees here today with a chance of flurries. Ugh
