Need help

Can someone help me. I have a Onan Emerald III plus 6.5. Just recently when I run my genset and operate the A/C after a short time the a/c seems to quit and the breaker pops inside the rv. If I continue to try and run it the switch on the side of the generator switches off. Any Help?

Have you measured the voltage output of the generator? A Kill a Watt meter would be a good investment.

The breaker pop needs to be understood. Obtain a clamp on ammeter and see how much current you are putting out at the generator. The A/C can be dirty or have a bad capacitor thus drawing excess current, the generator output voltage can be low causing excess current, other loads can be sucking power causing excess current, or the breakers may just be toasted and dropping out at a lower than rated current.
