Generator fuel source in 1975 Mini Winni?

I discovered why the generator won't start on the 1975 mini-Winni. The generator fuel hose was just stuck in the space above the gas tank and was not connected to anything.
I used a mirror and a flashlight to try to determine where the hose used to be connected. I can't find it. Where the engine fuel line connects at the rear of the fuel tank there is another connection that is plugged, but it is a 3/8" line and the line from the generator looks to be a 1/4" line.
Thanks for you help!

The gas tank is in the frame, to the rear of the axle. The engine fuel line is connected at the back of the tank. I can't see the top of the tank. If the generator line was connected at the top of the tank I can't see it.

My 1975 Minnie Winnie generator draws it's fuel from the vehicle fuel tank. It does NOT have a separate fuel tank.

On both my 79 Pace Arrow and the 84 Winnebago Gregg posted the link to the generator draws fuel from the main tank. The line in question appears 3/8" but in fact is squeezed ddown to 1/4' on the winnebago and down to 5/16" on the Pace Arrow. Pull the plug of the extra one and check to see if that is the case with yours.
