propane in winnebago

I bought a 2015 Winnebago(Minnie Winnie) 25B and while camping over the weekend the pressure relief valve went off on the propane tank. This was full when I bought it. It was extremely hot over the weekend and the generator never was turned off (Air conditioning). The generator and the propane tank are right next to each other....Tank got extremely hot...this happened 2 times....had to open LP compartment and run a fan to cool tank....this seemed to work...It was 98 degrees out and extremely humid...also we were parked in a tallish grass field.)not much air moving under the motorhome...How can I prevent this issue??

That is not normal.
Have the propane sysyem checked by a professional.
(Or only camp when it's cooler.)

Off hand are you using a Genturi or something similar to get the hot exhaust away from the generator area?

no genturi.......1st I ran into trouble, and that area was holding the heat like crazy..... I run it as I got it.....It doesn't even have 5000 miles on it yet....love it other then that....maybe tank was too full and the 98 degrees not helping any....

FWIW I would add a Genturi. When the air is quiet the exhaust tends to puddle around the generator. You get heat and you get a buildup of poison gases.
