Generator giving no power output?

I have a new Generac generator that was installed last year and worked fine. This year I can plug in the City service and all works fine but when I fire up the Gen Ac and other items don't work. I replaced the transfer switch thinking it was bad but same results. What else can I check? Thanks

On the Yamaha if it overloads it stops generating although the engine keeps running. You have to restart it and that resets the breaker. Maybe it's the same with yours? Do you have a lot of load turned on in the camper when you plug it into the generator?
