AC on Generator / 12v Tvs and Accessories surge

2021 AI GT - When running the generator, and the AC. It seems as though everytime the AC compressor kicks in all the TVs/12v items go off and have to turn them back on again. What am I doing wrong?

While running the a/c on your generator, I'd suggest you go to your magnum inverter settings and change the battery charge rate to your lowest setting. That would allow more of the generator's energy to go to your appliances and not into charging your batteries.
