Yes, that could be an issue, depending on the pressures involved. The kit illustration shows one regulator on the propane tank, and a separate second-stage regulator which mounts on the engine. If the pressure between the two is higher than the standard RV low pressure (11" water column) then I would not expect the second regulator to work properly.

I use a tee to tap full tank pressure at the tanks, not an outlet on the trailer's low-pressure system, to supply an outside barbecue. That would work for the generator as well.

As I said in the previous post, it works well off the gas line supplied by escape. The website for the generator shows a propane tank with a pressure regulator connecting to the modified generator. Again it worked for me. If in doubt call the generator folks, bet they would know.

I missed that... so it it does work, and thus the pressure between the two regulators matches the low pressure of the RV system.

Yes, but that regulator at the tank could be set for any pressure, which is why the caution. Irrelevant now, since I realize that Dave already reported that the regulator on the generator works with RV low pressure.

Curious if anyone has mounted the generator on the tongue of a 21 since without the giant storage box there is a 14 inch gap.
