my friend is trying to run her bus, and suddenly every couple minutes it shuts down, the gen like goes out nothing works.  then i comes back and will do the same thing in a couple minutes.  has anyone experienced this or something like it?  the bus was running great a couple weeks ago,  no idea what it can be

Reference to the gen is confusing to me but the other symptoms suggest a loose battery cable or ignition switch connection.
