Generator shutting off

Generator cranks up fine and runs for 15 - 30 minutes with AC & lights on. Then, the generator suddenly shuts off followed immediately by the AC. Lights stay on.

Oil level is fine. Any ideas?

Which lights? All the interior lights on the Axis are 12V--they won't shut off with the genny.

What model year? Is the genny used much? (See another thread on here with similar problems that running a tank of Seafoam through cleaned it up--Suddenly Generator problems)

It is unlikely that the genny is overheating as that isn't a common problem with 24.1 genny's.
