AC shuts off after few minutes on Generator

We have a 2008 Four winds Hurricane 33T MH and have had it for 3 yrs. We just returned from camping at our friends house and we have a guardian 5500 on board that is set up to run the MH complete including both ac's, Back in july we ran ac's on the generator along with everything else it all was fine. Now when we turn on generator our ac's shut down after a few minutes but DO NOT trip the breaker on the generator nor the circuit board and the tv's and microwave stay on but on other times they all shut down but still do not trip any breakers. When we are plugged in with our shoreline everything works perfect> What could be causing this?

ck to see if your generator is dropping voltage once it warms up, mine worked like a charm on vacation, got home went on a short hop and the a/c shut down on us.
we ran the dash a/c for the rest of the trip,when i got home cked the voltage it was fine so i bought a kill a watt meter ran the genset after a while it dropped voltage and things started shutting down.
my genset has 78 hours on it so it isn't worn out by any means but it lost a 300 dollar automatic voltage regulator .
you can pick up a kill a watt meter at radio shack for 30 dollars or so, i will carry mine with me from now on as it will ck voltage while plugged in at camp grounds plus hertz and you can use it to ck power draw on anything you carry with you.
just my two cents worth

We only have about 50 plus hours on our generator, but i will pass this information to my husband and see if he can test it.
