Generator shut down

I was running the genny and I think I over loaded it! I had the A/C running along with the microwave which I've done before. I turned on the water ( I'm boondocking) and the genny shut down!
Now I can't get it started! It's very hot and I'm at a loss as to what to do!

Check ALL of your breakers, including the ones on the generator.

Maybe wait until it cools down?

Where are the breakers located? I can't find the one on the generator itself! Which breaker panel would it be located in?

And stop running the AC and the microwave at the same time. It is too much load, even though you have done it before.

The breakers are on the generator panel itself but they wouldn't keep you from starting the generator.

I think letting it cool down did the trick! It's going now!
Thanks as always for your help.
On a positive note, I now know where the breaker is and not to run the A/C and microwave at the same time!
