Generac Generator

Hi, I have generac generator that runs for 1/2 an hour and quits. It's in my new to me 1998 airbus. the manual said to check the oil and I did. A little low so I added the correct kind. I tryed it again with one air on and run about 1/2 an hour and quit. I tryed again later with only the TV on. Same
thing happened. Does anyone have any insight on why it's doing this and how to repair it. I was sure we ran it longer than that at the dealers.Thanks

First thought check fuel filter and fuel level in tank....filter could be partially plugged..re fuel level in tank many are set so fuel pick up for gen set is set high so you can not run fuel tank dry with gen set, gen set runs out of fuel at about 1/4 tank..2 quick and easy checks...no idea of coach age so not sure if could be an electronic control issue..

Troubleshooting flow chart says to check the oil pressure switch, oil temperature switch and the start-stop switch.
I will PM you.
