we are on our trip in Florida yesterday we were running down the interstate with the generator so we could run the rear air conditioner. air conditioner shut itself off pulled over to the side of the road just to see if anything was going on everything look fine started the generator back up but it would not run the AC the microwave or no power to the RV generator runs fine the Army is getting no power got to the RV park last night and plug drvn and again it is not getting any power from the power cord. I checked the little box of fuses there's only four breakers and they all seem to be good anybody have an idea? 2001 Jayco C class

yes it has a model ATS30A transfer switch. if I run the generator I can get the microwave and refrigerator to work but if I turn the AC on it trips the breaker on the generator. if I plug in to shore power I get nothing on the microwave or refrigerator
I can run the generator it will run the fridgerator and power up the microwave and not using the microwave but I know what time because it has the lights on and then if I flip the air conditioner on it will trip the breaker but if I leave the air conditioner off it will not trip the breaker and I can use generator power. breaker on the generator is 30 amp. I just don't understand why I can't get any power from the shore power cord?
after looking into it a little bit farther when I run the generator and try to run the air conditioner air conditioner run for about 3 seconds and it ttips off?
after it trips off the microwave and refrigerator will come back on but the air conditioner will not so I am NOT blowing the fuse in the generator it has to be a fuse somewhere else I also still don't understand why nothing works on shore power
spent about 2 hours out there with an electrical meter. found two bad wires going into one of the main breakers taped up and tightened up those two wires and now its all working fine? not sure if that was it or not but it's working now I'm going to go ahead and leave it like it is until we get back to Atlanta and I'll have the RV dealer look at it thanks for all the input.
