Front Air Conditioning not working with Generator

Hi All,

The back AC one works when I turn on the generator but the front doesn't work. It used to work then the last couple of times I tried it, the front won't turn on.

Any ideas why this would be?

If your switch does not have GEN BOTH then turn the A/C selector switch to front.
But both should run if the selector switch is set to the rear with the generator running if the switch does have GEN BOTH on it.

We were running both AC's coming from Texas and when we reached higher altitudes, our generator shut down. Turns out I needed to adjust the altitude dial on the generator. Does changes in altitude have anything with your problem?
