An "on generator" question:


Ms. Irma gave me the "opportunity" to run my generator for an extended period of time.  On my toyhauler (2016 Fuzion 416) I have 2 A/C units.  One over the garage (rear) & one over the bedroom (front).  When my "opportunity" came to be on generator, the rear A/C is the only one that worked.
 
I know we can't run both A/Cs at the same time on generator, so I started with both off.  I turned on the front A/C, waited awhile & nothing.  I turned off the front, switched on the rear & voilà!  Spent the nights sleeping in the garage.
 
My thinking is that from the factory only one unit is connected to the generator.   I believe my rig is wired wrong.
 
Can anyone confirm or deny this?  AND if I'm right, how do I make it so the living area is A/C'd under generator power & not my workshop?
 
Signed,
an acquaintance of Ms. Irma!

Are their breakers on the generator itself? Mine has two breakers, one for each leg of 50AMP, and they are tied together. Yours might not be tied together, so only one leg is getting power.

You did not state what size generator it was. As Mr Joyce noted check breakers. Could be breaker(s) on generator and on the hauler.
Not sure about this suggestion so take it with a grain so salt. Is it one thermostat that controls multi zones in toy hauler?
Good luck

I got it working everyone, thanks for all the helpful input. Toggling the 2 breakers on the gen. did the trick.

Glad you got it sorted out ... my 5.5KW LP Generator runs everything in the rig ... both AC's and microwave all at the same time😄
