Sudden loss of power, dry camping

While my wife was using the hair dryer with the generator on, we lost all power. The inverter is off so the residential refrigerator is also off.

Iíve checked the gfi receptacles including the one in the wet bay and theyíre all good. Any idea what else I can try?

Thanks

Steve

Check the AC breakers in the power center. If the outlet the dryer was plugged into is supplied by the same breaker powering a high-ish draw device like a fridge, converter or heater you've exceeded the limit of a 15A circuit.

You didn't say what generator you have, but my Onan also has a circuit breaker near the unit's start/stop switch. But my money's on a breaker in the power center.

The only breakers I can find are in the hallway. Are there other breakers somewhere?

Thanks
