Running the AC off of the genny is the best way.

Hard to say from here, could be the coil froze up.

Try cracking a window at the rear of the coach to get some "through flow". Dash unit is blowing air into a basically sealed box so without letting the hot air out the coach is goint to be hard to cool.

Yes. I have a new GHawk 31 FS and at 6 months my Cummins generator would run for a short time but for the most part it would cut-off always in less than an hour. It got so that it always would do that so I knew that if I took it in to a Cummins dealer/service center it most certainly would perform this problem for them. Diagnosis was the wiring inside the generator compartment. One of the wires would short out with ground causing my trouble. Once repaired it works fine.

Ahh, an excellent idea. Thanks for the tip.
