Because with the generator, the microwave works as well as the outlets. When we were parked at the RV park, we didn't have a problem.
Ah, so shore power worked for you at the RV Park but not at home? Was no 110 power working for you at home (TV, Microwave, Fridge(not gas), outlets)? How are you plugging in at home? I assume your RV is 30amp. Did you happen to put a 30amp to 15amp (standard 110 power plug) plug adapter on your power cable to plug into your home? If so, check your breakers in your home. I used to do this too, and you can run limited power to the RV but it will throw the breaker from time to time. Usually, I could run the AC by itself without much problem, but I mainly did it to keep the fridge cold. I understand these kind of adapters have a history of burning out easily though it never happened to me.

I actually had a breaker on the outside of my garage where I was plugging in by the main power connection box that I didn't know about. Anyway, to make a long story short that kept getting thrown so I had a 30amp plug put in just for my RV connection while at home.
