I had posted pictures of this mod before, but it must be
lost in cyberspace. Anyway, here are the photos showing
how I can access the 20 gallons of fuel in the generator fuel
tank and make it available to the fuel station.

All you need is some fittings, a 3 way shut off valve and hose.
You can purchase the valve at a hose shop or at a NAPA store.

Howie:

I remember drooling over this one, but my dilemna was the opposite- I need to use the 40 gal tank as additional fodder for my 20 gal (which the genset feeds off). Could you just simply reverse the connections? This is one of my next mods!

Hey thanks bud!

I also did a simalar mod.....I think my mod is more flexable....The switch is located back by the fuel station...and is accessable without crawling under the trailer. Basically where ever the switch is positioned is what tank it is drawing from. So you could run both tanks to the generator or to the fuel station. If you need more info I posted the info before with all the pics and details.... Let me know I can transfer them over from the other forum.

Would LOVE to have pics here...that way people could choose from both methods in a fell swoop. I'm particularly interested in your solution. I'm wondering: has Wes done the same thing?

I took a couple pictures....kind of tight under the trailer where this switch is located....I did my best with the photoshop thing.







Hopefully these will look o.k. I screwed my Tee right into the 3/8 female hole coming out of the selector switch. Then one 3/8 hose goes to the fuel station pump, and the 1/4 line runs up to the generator in the front of the trailer. I should have labled the hose that comes straight out of the tee goes to the fuel station pump...actually to the fuel filter which goes into the pump. Hope this helps. Oh yeah I ended up drilling 3 small holes in the frame of the trailer. One hole for the switch handle, and 2 for mounting screws. It was not hard to do....once you start looking at it, hopefully it will make sense. The hardest part to find was the selector switch itself....I got it at Napa auto parts....it is a tank selector for old trucks that had 2 gas tanks. The tee, and all other brass fittings were purchsased at home depot. I believe the selector switch came in 2 sizes and I purchased the larger diamater of the 2....I think it is 3/8. The tee at home depot is great because it only has threaded ends so you can make it exactly the way you want....1 hose bib 3/8 for fuel station, and one 1/4 bib for generator. The tee threads screwed right into the outlet of the selector switch. In a nutshell you put a feed from each fuel tank into the selector switch. The out for the selector switch is the threaded hole in the back which is where I screwed in the tee. So now whichever position I have the selector switch...both the fuel station and the generator are fed from that tank. I usually leave it on the generator tank unless I am gassing up bikes....then I switch over to fuel station tank.....If either tank starts getting low I can switch to the other.

Nope.......I deleted the 20 gallon tank on my TH when I ordered. So far I haven't regretted the decision. I always have plenty of fuel left after every trip. If I had a sandrail or jeep, {like one would fit in my TH} I would've
ordered both tanks. I can always add it later if need be.
