Newbie- confused about eletrical

I opened my food truck on July 4th at an area festival that had electrical hook ups, everything worked. Now I want to be able to run everything curbside. The problem is this, I do not understand all the watts, AMPs, and AH. I have a 4000 gen and a 7500 gen. Neither will run my truck completely. Here is what I have:
 
two steamers- 1200 watts each =2400 watts
electric 'oven'- 1500 watts
two warmers- 500 watts each = 1000 watts
fridge - (443/kw per hr? its a standard fridge)
Over head light and cash register.
I do not understand why the 7500 watt gen can't handle the load? I'm willing to do just about anything to get this thing running properly. Unfortunately, I also do not have anyone willing to work on the 'kitchen' part of my truck so I will have to figure this out. Any help is appreciated.
