You shouldn't need to unplug from shore power to start your generator. The change over switch should take care of it. You can hear the switch when the genset kicks in, you also hear it when you plug into shore power. If you are loosing a breaker there is some sort of problem IMO. On my MH I would switch from a 20Amp shore power to gen all the time and never an issue.
