I read a post on another board last week from someone with a similar set up to mine. He tee'd off of the supply line of both tanks. He set up a manifold in the generator compartment with a couple of ball valves to select which tank to draw from. He said that the genset fuel pump was drawing past the tank fuel pumps effortlessly. I looked on top of my tanks, & neither one has the pick up on them, and they both look relatively new (with that said, the entire underside looks like new...).I do realize that I will have to keep an eye on the fuel level when using the generator, but that seems like one of the easiest options.

I suspect the rig was never intended to have a transfer switch. Many C class rigs (like my View) simply have a cord feeding the main breaker, and the generator has a 4x4 box with a TT30 receptacle in the cord compartment. You want generator power, you roll and store the cord in its compartment and plug it into the receptacle in the 4x4 box. You want shore power, you unplug from the generator receptacle and pull the cord out and plug into the pedestal. Idiot simple, just remember to always plug in the cord to the genny receptacle any time you stow the cord.

That's exactly what it is. Like I said, it's dirt simple. I wasn't sure when I saw the receptacle, because of the DPDT switch in front of the sink labeled "AC or Washer Dryer Receptacle". Turns out it's for the AC or Microwave Rec....

I started prep work for installing the generator I just purchased in Sunday, but it was a bit over 100 (but it's a dry heat), so I decided that I would postpone until this coming weekend when it's only supposed to be in the lower to mid 90's.........
