Loss of ac while on generator

We are on the road in upstate ny. Stopped at a rest area and started the generator to warm the interior and make lunch. Everything was fine but when I put on the microwave, I think I overloaded the system. Now no power or microwave. I flipped the gfi breaker off and that didn't help. Is there something else I should be checking? The generator kept going by the way. Thanks friends.

There is a breaker on the generator itself. Check that and then your breaker panel.

Loss of ac power

Thanks folks. It turned out to be a gfi and the key was to reset with the generator running. Had to locate the gfi first, but we are back in business.

Yes, there has to be power to a gfi to reset it.
