Again thanks all and I will let you know how it turns out.
Since you have narrowed it down to one outlet, it is time to pull that outlet and have a close look at it. Just because there isn't anything plugged into it does not mean that there isn't another branch circuit feeding off of the back of it. Sometimes things such as fans, lights, or even heavy appliances are hard wired into the back of outlets. Since it works on higher wattage generator, something is causing a voltage drop, resulting in higher current drop. As you look at the back of outlet, also check to make sure it is wired with the correct polarity.
