Generator shut down

Today I had my gen shut down twice. I have a 4000 watt Onan in my 32 bunkhouse. When the ac and electric water heater were on, and I tried to start the rig, the gen shut off. Then when I was in the shower and the electric water heater cycled again, it shut off again.

Any ideas as to what would cause that?

When I run ours in heat, I use propane for reefer and hot water. Even on shore power when I run the A/C.

The breaker did not trip. I didn’t look for a code. I was just out of the shower.
