Power loss

Maybe someone can help me here..... I have a 2001 Monaco Executive. When I知 on shore power, everything works great. When I知 on generator power, however, my whole curbside wall takes 5 minutes to power on and loses power after an hour or so. Then it takes about 5 minutes to power on again. Over and over again. I had my generator (Onan 10k QD) serviced at a Cummins/Onan shop. One pole was running at adequate voltage, but the other was running well below what it should have been. The issue was fixed. However, the wall power issue still continues.

Most of my curb side outlets are on 1 circuit. Wonder if you have a weak or failing circuit breaker. Try re-setting all of them but physically turn them off, then back on.

I would think that the issue that they fixed came back.

Have you measured the voltage on that leg of the generator when its acting up ?

My breakers are good. Nothing trips when any loads are applied. And everything runs great with no down time or power loss when on shore power. I haven’t checked the legs, admittedly don’t know how/where to look.

Determine which circuit breaker is acting up. Go to your breaker panel with a volt meter. Check the voltage on each breaker when it is acting up. Check the voltage at the main breaker wh it is acting up. If you don't have a volt meter see if a nearby camper has one. If nothing else, check for loose connections in the panel.
