Guardian primepact 50g rv gen starts for 2 sec then shuts down

I have a replacement guardian primpact 50g rv gen. that starts for 2 sec then shuts off. The old one that I replaced did the same after 4k hours. That why I bought a new one. We have replaced the fuel disconected the remote to no avail. one of the reason to install a new one was a electrical ordor coming from gen area so we thought gen was out of life. Any suggestion on how to isolate problem.We have 2 relays not replaced yet that supose to disconet hooked up power to rv when the gen is running.

Try to measure the voltage at the connector when trying to start.
If it is 12 V and the engine does not start - disconnect it and try again.

Have in mind that you must have protections (Shut down):
  1. Low oil level;
  2. Low oil pressure;
  3. High temperature.
and this valve may be responsible for them.

Each time I run the microwave all power shuts off until it resets itself

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Have a 16k propane guardian generator have to manually start and

Is this an RV generator?

If you have to really choke an LP engine but it runs more or less normally once started you need to troubleshoot the demand regulator and the fuel supply lines (look for air leaks). I'd also check the fuel inlet pressure before the demand regulator.
