Here is the code explained direct from Kohler's manual. I'd disconnect the generator load first.
UU Undervoltage Shutdown occurs if the voltage falls below 80% of the nominal system voltage for more than seconds. Check wiring and connections.
Reduce the load and restart the generator set. —
Check wiring and Check controller configuration, system voltage
and frequency (parameter UU).

Check AC voltage and adjust, if necessary. 5.7
Replace the SCR module and test voltage again. 4.9
Separately excite unit. 5.2
Check stator continuity

Kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec


Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.
