There are circuit breakers on the generator itself are they okay?
Fuses also located on the inverter.
Good luck.

I think it could also be a faulty transfer switch? In my case recently the breaker on the generator had tripped. That breaker can be hard to spot - on the Onan 4000 for example it is black, pointed down, and unmarked near the start switch after you remove the access panel.

You should not have to do a thing, just start it up and the auto transfer switch should take care of supplying the power.
