Gen power flickers
Well, I've had an expensive week, haha. First my house batteries died. I replaced them for $600. Then my water pump went bad. $1300.
Now it appears I have a new problem. About a week ago power from my generator started flickering off and on every two minutes or so. This doesn't happen on shore power or battery power. Just generator power.

My inverter panel resets as well. I don't know if this is an inverter problem or gen problem.
Based on other threads I turned of the breakers on the inverter and disconnected the batteries to reset the inverter. No change. I also turned off the Idle or power sensing function.
Could it just be a bad air filter on the gen or something maintenance based? It seems to get worse if I use the water heater or coffee maker.
