In most situation where you have a dual power source there is a relay or a switch. You may have a box or lever that switches from external to generator power. If you can't find a switch then it is most likely you relay gone bad.

Starts runs for a minutes quits but if you keep pushing the start button it keeps running


You say Guardian that is Generac???? Then you indicate Onan 4.0KY. If it is a Onan and it stops after you release the button there are a couple of things. 1 st check the brushes, and polish the rotor slip rings, check the resisitance of the rotor, the electrical harness plugs are tight. The control requires a voltage feedback while cranking to engage the PCB run circuits, if all those check out you have a bad control board.

If your plugged in to a 15 amp household receptacle, then an extension cable of any kind or length, then that is likely your problem. An AC unit should have 20 amps of good power available to it. If your using an extension cord of any kind, and it is any less than 12 gauge wire, then that will cause a drop in voltage as well. Obviously the best scenario would be to install and wire a 30 amp receptacle outside your house just for that use, if done often. Take a voltage reading at receptacle, then inside RV, and see how it is probably a little less without even the AC on, then when AC kicks in, or tries to.
It may work once in a while, but it's not good for the AC to try and operate on low voltage, which causes a higher amperage draw.

I take it you metered for voltage at the shore power outlet, and at the cord end itself where it plugs into the RV, is there a buck/boost transformer..if so does it have a breaker, are there fuses at the inlet receptacle. Are all GFI outlet breakers in the RV checked for normal position?

Open the plugs on the bottom front of the pump pot and on the pump housing itself. These two plugs will do the pump and just the pump. You should have simmilar plugs on the filter, heater, chlorinator and any other equiptment on the system.

Fan works, but if A/C turned on, trips breaker within a few minut


You need to verify if the problem is the unit or the breaker.  To do this, you will need to measure the current it is pulling from the power source.
If the unit is pulling too much current, then the unit is the problem.  If the unit is pulling as much or less than its rated current draw, then the circuit breaker is worn out.
The units WILL pull more power when hot outside.  It should not trip a breaker unless something is wrong with either the unit or the breaker.
A current draw test will tell you for sure.
If it's not the breaker, then it's probably low refigerant causing the issue.

Rv Generator does not turn on inside power, but cranks great


The regulator could be inside the gen. Maybe under one of the covers on the front. I'd poke around and take a cover or two off and look it over. You may be surprised!
