Unhappy Anyone ever mount a Yamaha 3000 to their 5th wheel?

We have a Yamaha 3000 generator and were planning on hard mounting inside of our Montana HC (37ft). But not the easiest thing to get in there....and concerned about the fumes and electricals together.
Has anyone mounted their Yamaha 3000 in a similar way? Any other suggestions??

Thanks All.

Well, if you can figure out how to route the exhaust away from under your bedroom so you don't have a carbon monoxide problem, and can also manage to fill the tank without ever spilling anything, you should be fine. I'd put it in the bed of your truck and use an extension cord to reach it there.

I would have a ramp in the basement of a 5th wheel, and wheel such a unit away from the front end bedroom--as long as the extension cord would reach. Many mount their generators in their truck beds, but it takes away some of your mobility if your wife wants to stay in the RV while you leave the campsite.

You'd need a unit intended for permanent mounting, like an Onan to put inside your trailer. Exhaust is an issue.

Curious to see what you come up with. I have my 3000ISEB mounted in my pickup. But I don't need to use the bed all the time, so it is not inconvienent for me. Wasn't hard running the wheeled generator up wood planks into the truck.

Anyway, if you do mount it in your trailer, I would like to see how you do it.

I'd like to see the mod as well. Exhausting gas always scares me a bit and I would like think about securing it in the bed of my truck.

Thanks all for the feed back. Much appreciated! The idea was to hard mount it to keep it out of sight, out of direct sun and of course not to have to be moving it all the time. Being we will be full timing and the truck our only vehicle....we also have two dogs that will not be able to always go everywhere with us.... Doubt anyone would try to steel something that big though...or would they? We had this before we made the decision to full time. Trying to make what we have work.

That is why I got a soft tonneau cover. It stretches over the generator that sticks up above the bedrails. Out of sight, out of mind. I also cabled it to the truck. Nothing is 100% though, if someone want's anything bad enough.

I understand not wanting to have to move it all the time.

I have my Honda 3000 mounted in the truck bed toolbox. Buy a full size crossover deep box from either Lowes or Home Depot for $300. Cut the bottom of the tool box out as cleanly as possible. Use the cut out piece

Use the cutout piece to cover the bottom area that is open. You can now set the Honda or Yamaha gender in the box and lock it and be able to run it which out fear of asphyxiation or noise inside. I can send you more instructions and pictures if needed. I have been using this setup for years and none would even know there's a generator in there.

That sounds like a great idea. I would like to see how you did it.

I don't understand this part...do you lay the cut out piece on the floor of the bed?
