shut off generator ?

Hi, here I am again. New to me 2010 Allegro Bus and have pulled onto a 30amp site.

Generator keeps starting and stopping.

Monitor indicates "BROWN OUT".

Yet have 118-120 volts and am only drawing 13-15 amps.

Is there a switch or fuse to prevent the gen. from starting automatically.

I think I can survive with 1 air conditioner.

Don't have an Allegro, but our Fleetwood Discovery monitor panel has a generator configuration system allowing you to allow the generator to automatically start. Perhaps you have something similar? Of course, you need to ensure only one A/C is set to turn on, otherwise your system may be trying to help you out by firing up the generator.

No doubt others will chime in who can offer better advice...

This might be a simple question and I do not have an auto start so I might be wrong. If I understand right you can set auto start to come on and charge batteries when they are low and then shut off when they are charged. Could that be what is happening to you. If so disable that.

My 08 bus has AGS. You have to go in to the program and switch off auto start setting
