Genset is fine. We had it checked thoroughly last year by the local Cummins shop. We had the same problem (no power) last year, but thought it was only one circuit. Didn't dawn on me that the inverter was powering the micro and other receptacles at the time.

We took it to a local shop last year and they couldn't find any issues (and sent it on to Cummins) and everything was working fine when we picked it up. As I mentioned, we've had it sitting out at the Colorado river hooked to shore power since the beginning of May. Probably a loose connection aggravated by the extreme temp fluctuations that occur out there. (Fifty degree swings...)

The coach is home for the winter, so I have some time to troubleshoot the problems. I plan to upgrade the exterior lights to LED over the winter as well. Maybe upgrade the A/V system. And buy new tires.

We're planning our first big (37 days) trip for early next summer; anticipating retirement in a few years and this will be an 'experiment' to see how much we really like (actually how much the DW enjoys) traveling.
