Slow transfer switch?

We do mostly dry camping. When running the generator in my 2011 Winnebago Adventure 37f and watching tv when I turn off generator my Direct TV starts to reboot like it has been unplugged. Shouldn't my inverter continue to power everything?
Thanks in advance.

There is often enough of a delay in the transfer of electrical sources that it can trigger the Dish receiver to reboot. If you plugged the Dish receiver into a small UPS (uninterrupted Power Source) you would prevent the reboot.

Something like this:

Methinks that is not at all un-common... (and certainly nothing to worry about).

It is if you turned the genset off during the climax of your wife's favorite tv show and she missed the dramatic ending. Hazardous to your health!

Only turn the genset off during a commercial or at the end of a show.

Sounds like first-hand knowledge.
