Could this be a faulty battery or something else going on with the generator? Any help would be appreciated. The dealer says there may be a drain on the battery even though I have it in the store position.
I see you are in AZ, very hot this time of year, could it be overheating? I have a problem occasionally when it is very hot, it will shut down, particularly if I'm driving and it's hot. Poor air circulation to disapate the heat. If you are parked at a campground, try opening the bay door for the genny, take the door off and run it to see if that helps. Obviously you can't run down the road this way, but at least it's a starting point.
Also, not sure what your elevation is, you may need to change the fuel mixture, especially if you are up there in elevation. There is a fuel mixture adjustment screw.
When it auto shuts down, it should give you an error code, the lights on the start switch in the bay will flash a series of blinks to alert you to a fault. If it's giving a code, check the owner's manual for a fault.
Keep us posted!!
