Shooter: This is good information. I was about to buy an LP Gen, and thank God I was hesitant. I like your idea of the boat cans. Do you have a picture of how this is set up (especially the manifold portion)? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

If you are making a 5 can setup you will need 4 - 3/8" T's ( I prefer brass ) from auto parts house. 7 - 3/8" marine quick connect fuel fittings , I got fittings and tanks from a sporting goods warehouse in Tx., much cheaper than boat shop.

Put one quick connect on a 8" hose stub on gen fuel pump. one quick connect at other end of fuel line, 6" stub and a T . 6" and another T which goes to middle tank. Out from that T a length that will T to next tank and end tank. on the other side of the first T a piece of fuel line to place the T to tank and outside tank.
Q= quick connect
1= brass T
1~5 = fuel tanks/ any number of tanks




Had it all spaced and drawn out but the board will not hold spaces between characters so it does not hold format. sorry

You can hook up all 5 or as few as 1 tank. If multiple tanks it will pull fuel about equally from all connected tanks

Hope this helps </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Thank you also have been planning on a large gen to run trailer and thought LP would make install easy but was worried about LP use.

Is there a difference in noise levels between the LP and Gasoline?

According to Onans web site there is no diffference in the sound levels of the gas and propane versions of the same models.

I was going to buy a motorhome that had a propane gen and I emailed Onan to ask if they had a conversion kit to gasoline. Their answer was no. I was going to just find a similar model in gasoline version and get the carb and various comoonents needed based on that model. I never did buy the coach. I hope you have more luck w/ them than I did.
