RV ready?

Hubby and I are looking at generators online for the Motor home. It doesn't need to fit in the back generator compartment as we can mount it on the tongue of the powerchute trailer or the bumper of the Motor Home, but when looking at models for sale, some are described as RV ready and he wants to know what is different about that than any other generator out there?

Does it mean it has no separate gas tank but a long tube to stick into your gas tank for the Motor Home?

Does it mean it has specific wiring to hook into the Motor home?

He bought a larger one than what ours had, but after I mentioned weight of the tongue + generator, etc. and it might be over weight, he weighed it and had to admit I was right, so we are selling the one he bought and are looking again.

My understanding of a generator that is RV ready means it has the 30 amp rv plug installed on the generator and can provide 30 amps of power for the RV. There are several out there, Champion comes to mind.
