Recently started getting a problem with our off grid house system where the generator will autostart, but as the bulk charging load gets applied, it shuts down after a few seconds.   Lister generator all seems ok, but am suspecting the Victron Multiplus charger/inverter.  Someone has suggested there are relays in the Victron which may stick.

System is about 6 years old, and problem is only intermittent at present.   

Any comment or suggestions please?

Sounds like the batteries are not taking a charge properly and the voltage rises fast and shuts off the generator.
