It seems several things will not work without DC.

The Air Condition\fans, the refrigerator, the stereo, the lights, or the water pump.

The fireplace works too.

Correct. I have 50 amp service but I am using an adapter to take it down to 110 AC.

From the sounds of it You don't have the correct adaptor for the generator to run a 50 amp RV service

Does the Generator have a 240 volt receptacle on it.

No. To ramp it up to 30 amps, you use a dedicated cable that connects to two generators together.

Like I said, I have AC power. Just can not use it with the battery disconnect switched on. I should be able to.

Try using only one generator.
This is making no sense at all.. The 12volt side doesn't touch the 120v side at all.

I just turned the breaker for the power converter off, and now everything SEEMS to working just fine. It has only been a minute or two, but I will provide an update in a few minutes to see if that fixes the problem.

Weird.

And, I have only been running off one generator all this time. I do not have the "sidewinder" cable. Have not been able to locate it.

It somewhat makes sense I think he is trying to use the two generators but he is only supplying 115 volts to the RV he needs 240Volt RV service Sounds like he is only powering one side of the 240 50 Amp plug


Somewhere a while back there were wiring diagrams posted on how the 240 Volt 50 amp service is configured

Do you have your battery connected properly? It would have blown you power converter reverse fuse. But 110 volt and 12 volt are different circuits and should have nothing to do with the problem you're having. Fridge need 12 volt in order to function as does the furnace.
