Generator issues

I was using Generator with the electric heat pump on and when I started the microwave it blew a circuit, the outlets heat pump and microwave won’t work. I reset the breakers and looked at all fuses and even replaced the 30 amp breaker, still no power. Is there a breaker on the propane generator? Please help

Geoffrey.cummings1,


Yes, there is a circuit breaker on the generators. It is usually a push button style breaker and is usually located near the outlet.

Since this is on a different topic from the original post, I suggest you create a new thread in the appropriate forum group (whether it's in this section or a model-specific one). If your generator came with the rig, then use the specific group for your rig. Post the details of what RV you own (make/model) as well as the generator. You'll have better luck getting an appropriate response that way.

There is often, depending on brand, a push button circuit breaker on the generators control panel. Often conered with a rubber or soft weatherproof cover you just push to reset.

Operators manual? If lost mfr should have one on their website.

Moved post to its own thread so it doesn't hijack the OP's thread.
