most generators are not grounded, so you'l need a 'ground bonding adapter' which ties ground to neutral at the generator, and also ideally physically ground the generator to a stake or steel water pipe... if you do this, the EMS should be fine with the generator power.

You can make a bonding plug or buy one so you don’t need to run EMS in bypass:

Never heard that bypass mode would void a warranty. The only generator that I’m aware of that supposedly cannot be run with the HW30C is the Yamaha EF2000iS. More info here:

As to propane pressure, I am pretty sure this will only run on high pressure (direct from the tank), and not function on the trailer's low pressure system. Since I already carry a 5 pound propane tank for my grill, if I get the generator, I'll just switch to carrying a 20 pound tank instead.


Just following up to see how this all worked out, and whether you found a way to adapt your Ryobi to low pressure QR or not? I too have occasionally longed for a small propane fired gennie for those extended stays under solar resistant canopy.

I do have the generator. Runs great, but only on high pressure. I did open up the single 120V connector to add a bonding jumper.

Again, this is only a 700 watt generator - you do have to shut down most of the trailer to use the converter if the batteries are down.
