No power to microwave and AC

Stopped by the storage area today to do a few things. Started the generator just fine but the AC and microwave did not work. Everything else lights etc worked.
Checked the fuses. None seemed to be blown. Any thoughts?

Is your generator breaker in the closed position? You have 12v from your battery (fuses) but you do not have 120v power (breakers).

Those would be controlled by breakers and not fuses. Lights are 12 volt, does the TV come on? Did you check the breaker on the front of the generator?

No I did not even know there was a breaker on the front of the generator. The TV did swing out but I did not turn it on.

lights are 12 volts DC. Most everything else is 120/gas with some 12 volt control circuits.

Rookie here. I guess I have to locate the generator breaker first.
