If the rig has a transfer switch it is in a separate location. If you plug your shore cord in to an outlet inside its own compartment you most likely do not have a transfer switch.
If this is a KY or hgjab model there are some fuel pump problems on both that will cause a fueling stall. If the Gen shuts down due to this it will cause the trouble light to blink. If it only shuts down while you are driving the gas cap could be bad as well causing the main engine to pull the fuel out of the generator instead of the gas cap venting.
As far as the fuel pump: If you run the Gen till that loping stall, you can immediately hold the stop to prime button and see if the pump is trying to pump. It is on the under side of the generator below the control/breaker box. It vibrates as it pumps and makes a happy fast little thump, thump, thump sound that you can feel if you put your hand around it.
